Ski4Real courses are usually based over 5 half-days within a 6-day period, which allows for some adaptability with regards to the snow conditions, weather and aching limbs! The reality is that we’re very flexible and if a group would like to ski together for the whole day, we’ll often stay with you if we can. Groups are small enough to be personal and large enough to be fun; six people are ideal. However, if a group of friends want to put together a larger group, we wouldn’t say no, we’d just organise things slightly differently so that everyone gets the right level of attention.
Course fee: £300.00 per person.
Private and family courses are designed on a bespoke basis, as are ski touring courses. Please enquire for a proposal to suit for your individual requirements. At the moment, Kim is unsure of his plans for the coming season, but Michelle’s courses are as per the dates below.
The 28th February – 4th March is now confirmed as off-piste. However, there’s still full flexibility on the other courses as to which one runs on which dates, so please get in touch if these don’t quite line up with what you’re looking for. The course agenda will be updated as bookings come in.

Alpine transition to Telemark: For Alpine skiers who want to learn to Telemark. It’s all about getting used to free-heel bindings, gaining a feel for the stance, turning and linking turns. You’ll soon be able to get around, so we won’t be staying on the bunny slope. Look forward to the most fun you’ve had since you first learnt to ski!
Telemark piste progress: For Telemark skiers who’re comfortable linking turns on blue pistes, but start to lose control on reds and blacks. It’s all about developing a strong stance, maintaining rhythm and flow over the line you want to ski and getting the most out of your skis. Expect a challenge!
Moving to off-piste Telemark: If you’re comfortable Telemarking on red pistes and feel the urge to wander, this is for you. It’s all about developing adaptability of stance and movement in order to cope with variable snow and terrain. Expect to roll in the powder!
Off-piste & ‘variable’ conditions: Have skis will travel. This is a week for Telemarkers who want to develop their ability to deal with a bigger range of snow conditions and terrain. We’ll be looking for the powder, but also working on how to deal with whatever nature throws at you. Ideal for budding ski tourers and mountaineers.
Telemark women’s group: For female Telemark skiers of all standards who want to improve their piste technique, relax and enjoy each other’s company. It’s all about grace, style and getting the most out of your skis to make it all look effortless. Look forward to civilised skiing!

Instructor development and ski school experience. If you’re thinking of becoming a Telemark instructor, our courses are a great way of making sure you’re as well prepared as possible for your training and assessment. We recognise that opportunities to shadow Telemark instructors and gain relevant ski school experience are somewhat limited and we view this as an essential part of contributing to the growth of Telemark skiing. Give either of us a call to discuss your requirements or use the contact form top right.
