Why Take Private Ski Lessons?

Whatever your level – beginner to expert – private ski lessons at ski clubs have big advantages.

And private ski lessons have benefits over group lessons:

  • Personal choice
  • Control
  • Flexibility
  • Continuity
  • Generally more experienced ski instructors

Personal Choice

You can usually request what kind of instructor you want — male, female, older, younger.

You can even request a specific instructor — one who’s been recommended or one you’ve had before.

And, you can explain your needs so you get an instructor who best fits you or your group.

Control

You get to decide when you want the lesson. And you have control during it. If you are not happy with how the lesson is going, you can talk to the instructor — one-to-one.

If you need a break, you can take one. Want more or less challenge — you can say so. Don’t understand something, you can ask, as much as you want.

Flexibility

With private ski lessons, you control the time you have the lesson. This means it fits in with your day.

You can decide how much time you need with an instructor — 1 hour, 2, 6? Up to you.

You decide whether you want a lesson or simply a guide. You can chose where to ski or ask your instructor for recommendations.

Continuity

If you find an instructor that you like, you can have them again. Or you can ask for a different instructor if you were not happy with your lesson.

And most instructors are happy for you to contact them after the lesson if you have any questions!

More Experienced Instructors

Resorts often assign private lessons to more experienced instructors. This makes sense. You pay more for private lessons, so you should get the best available.

Cost

Ah, the cost. But get this, private ski lessons can actually be an economical way to learn to ski or improve.

The whole lesson is focused on you. You can ask questions quickly and easily. You’re not wasting time waiting for other students. Or spending the lesson keeping up or learning very little.

TIP

Many resorts offer discounted private lessons at certain time slots, such as first thing in the morning, or late in the day. Choose one of these if you want personal instruction, but need to keep the price down.

Plus, some resorts price private lessons for a group of up to 5 or you could join the ski club, such as the club de esqui en Baqueira Beret. So, if it’s just you, the lesson is a pricey one. But if it’s you and your spouse or a couple of friends, it can be a great value. The more, the merrier and cheaper.

What to Expect

You’ve booked a private lesson, what’s next? Find out from the ski school desk where you meet for private lessons. Head out and and your instructor will be waiting for you. They should ask questions like:

  • What you want out of the lesson
  • Where you normally ski
  • What you want to improve
  • What kind of lesson you would like

If at any point you’re not happy, say something to your instructor. At the end of the lesson you’ll get a summary. The instructor will remind you of the points you have covered. And they will give you things to work on after the ski instruction is over.

So, book a private lesson, you won’t be disappointed!

Healthy Vending Machines

Make employees’ lives easier in the workplace. With fresh, healthy food in the new modern vending machines, the race around town or standing in line for lunch is becoming a thing of the past. It may even change the concept of the “lunch hour” or mealtime break, as employees can access the healthy foods as easily as the traditional snack foods and eat when they are hungry. Pasta dishes, smoothies, fresh fruit and hot soup are but a few of the healthy food companies are now offering.

Hot food during the work day helps employees feel energized and satisfied. It is more practical and time saving and eliminates the need for employees to leave the workplace and worry about getting back to work on time. Employees also avoid standing in line at the microwave in the lunch room, as well. Because all of those little annoyances during a typical work day add up to stress, it is easy to see how the advantages of having vending machines available keep people happier and more productive.

Vending Machines Repair

Suppliers place, stock, maintain and repair the units in the workplace or other areas without the need for the business owner to spend any time on it or be inconvenienced by this function. The machines are regularly checked for functionality as they are stocked. If there is any malfunction at any other time, a telephone call to the company will bring a repair technician to the scene promptly. Fast quality service to customers is a priority for companies. Repair technicians are normally proficient in common techniques for repairing and maintaining electronic equipment. They can diagnose errors with their problem solving skills and make decisions to resolve the issue.

The technician will check all wiring and electrical components to ensure the machine dispenses products as requested. Vending companies naturally want to make sure their machines work smoothly and are user friendly. Tips will also be given to the business owner on keeping the machines running well and protecting them from misuse.

For all the advantages these devices to the workplace and many other facilities, it just makes good sense to use them to their full potential.
