The Winter 2021/22 programme will look reassuringly familiar to those who ski with us regularly and has taken into account those groups who had already requested spaces for 2021/22 when it became clear that last season was going to be written off. Please therefore give alternative dates when enquiring about availability.
For those skiers who haven't been on an Ali Ross Skiing Clinic before, you will notice that we offer just one ski course each week ; this is because the unique advantage of the Skiing Clinics is that Ali Ross doesn't just lend his name to the system and thereafter assistants take over, but actually teaches every lesson, whether group or private, himself. This not only guarantees consistency of information and feedback, but also more critically, his technical insights will help you to become the accomplished skier you always aspired to be. Be warned - there are no magic wands or short-cuts in this process and it requires a certain determination to ditch skiing habits acquired over perhaps many winters- but if ever there was a more auspicious time to start the next phase of your skiing life, next season must surely be it. Don't take our word for it, come and join us and find out for yourself.
2020/21 will long be remembered as the ski season that never was- an unwelcome historical first, for reasons that we could never have imagined over a year ago. Even if we are still in the midst of uncertainty with constantly changing traffic lights, there are solid reasons for hoping that by next winter we can enjoy our sport again with renewed enthusiasm, albeit living with some restrictions on the slopes and in the resort villages.
With that in mind, the schedule for 2021/22 is published on the Courses and Dates page, together with descriptions of each type of course. Provisional bookings have already been made by those who had reserved places for last season, when as time went on, it was obvious that the French ski resorts were not going to open their lifts at all last winter, so please have alternative dates for consideration and note that each request must be made via the ski course Booking Form individually, regardless of whether you are part of a group. Please note the new e mail address: skiingclinics@ gmail.com.
