The Snoworks ‘Open’ philosophies make champions, as well as being a game-changer for the intermediate skier. Skiing is probably one of the most ‘open’ and dynamic sports there is, yet somewhat alarmingly, much of the ski teaching industry has built its understanding and foundations of teaching skiing on a ‘closed’ sports methodology. Many skiers have become trapped in this ‘closed’ sports methodology and hence are limited to where the environment is more ‘closed’, such as well-groomed pistes on sunny days.

YOU ARE WHO YOU ARE Ski instructors are probably the number one reason why people do not improve, yep it can be true, along with friends, relatives, colleagues, other people and of course yourself. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not their fault. We become paranoid about what people think about us. Yep, I know this as it happened to me. I loved my skiing, couldn’t get enough, then one day it started. I became nervous, worried, concerned. I thought people were watching me. Y ..read more

We often get asked what is the balance between instruction/coaching on Snoworks courses and guiding? Our ski course programme bridges exactly this gap and balances guiding and  instruction/coaching superbly for each individual, their experience, level and goals.

For some it’s developing their skiing to be able to cope with more of the mountain, for others it’s to be taken to amazing places on the mountain and to experience the best snow. For others it’s to ski with like minded skiers. For these reasons we aim to create a balance betwe ..read more

Definition: Falling sharply precipitous sheer sharp almost perpendicular vertical Opposite to gentle sudden Just a few of the words to describe steep. Excitement, apprehension, anxiety, nervousness, scary are some of the emotions the term ‘steep’ brings about. Most skiers love the idea of skiing steeper terrain. Most of us also like to be in control. True, a few launch themselves of precipices without a care in the world but most so called ‘sane’ skiers enjoy a feeling of being in control. Steep is relative. The first Blue is steep for a beginner, the first Red, Black. For advanced an ..read more
