Head to the dry ski slopes at Snowtrax and get your skis on for a beginner’s lesson of this popular sport.

You’ll be in the capable hands of a qualified instructor who’ll give you a whistle-stop tour of the basics of skiing.

To start with, you’ll practise a range of moves and techniques while you are stationary and then, when you are ready, put these into practice on an introductory slope. Depending how you get on, you might even feel ready to progress to a slightly steeper slope towards the end of the lesson.

If you decide to take up skiing on a more regular basis, your body will benefit from all that twisting and turning; it’s a great cardio workout (burning calories and aiding weight loss) and you’ll start to improve your balance, strength and flexibility as you develop your skills.
