Here at Cloud Nine Chalets, we’ve been skiing and snowboarding for quite a while now but we can still remember our first time on the snow. It can be a bit daunting the first time that you strap something to your feet that is meant to make you go fast down a mountain so we’re offering a beginner’s ‘Learn to Ski’ package so that the only thing you have to worry about is how you are going to stop!
Bansko is a great destination for learning to ski, there are several easy beginner areas to get you started and the instructors are friendly, helpful and patient. It’s always worth having lessons, even if you are already sporty and fit, as it gets you using the right techniques from day 1! Your chalet hosts have gone through it all so they will be on hand to give you all the tips and encouragement that you need.
I (Victoria) had loads of lessons when I started to ski which helped me advance really quickly but later on when I started boarding I went without lessons and ended up with a lot of bruises…. I got to the point where I was OK getting around the mountain but I felt I wasn’t improving as much as I could be, so I had a week of lessons. My poor instructor had to spend the first couple of lessons correcting my stance and ironing out all my bad habits (there were quite a few) but I had an immediate improvement and I couldn’t believe that I had wasted all that time not doing it properly and falling over such a lot!
Our ‘Learn to Ski’ and ‘Learn to Snowboard’ packages are designed to make your week run smoothly so that you can just focus on getting going on the snow. For £419pp (Ski) or £439pp (Snowboard) you get:

These ‘Learn to Ski’ packages will be running in Bansko, in Chalet Soltir and Chalet Juniper for the 10th Jan and the 17th Jan weeks and at the moment return flights are around £100. Your chalet hosts will look after you all week and make sure that the hot tub is nice and hot so you can soak your muscles after a day on the ski slopes.
