Who are they for?
Development Clinics are for skiers who are level 7, 8, 9 or 10 on our ability scale. L4, 5 or 6 skiers check out our Improver clinics and confident L6 skiers check out our Tune-Up clinics.

Typical Development Clinic
Based on two 2 hour sessions on snow with a coffee/lunch break midday. During each session we will use a number of drills and exercises to focus in detail of a specific aspect of your ski performance as highlighted in the monthly programme.

Sessions may have a slightly varied start times as The Snow Centre is staggering slope access times in 15 minute increments. We will give you specific start times for your course 24 hours in advance. It helps us greatly if you can book several weeks in advance in order to confirm slope pass timings as slope capacity and entry times are restricted.

Timetable
9:50 meet your coach in changing area who will provide you with your ski pass
10.00am - 12.00am Slope session 1
12.00am - 1.00pm Coffee / lunch break with group video analysis in the cafe (social distancing permitting)
1.00pm - 3.00pm Slope session 2
3.00pm - 3.30pm Group video analysis and wrap up in the cafe (social distancing permitting)

Includes
Includes two off 2 hour slope passes, ski rental equipment plus video review and feedback. If you have your own ski equipment we highly recommend bringing your own rather than using rental equipment to speed up the check in process.
Minimum Numbers
Should a Development clinic have only one person booked on it we will run the course as an extended private session consisting of a 2 hour session on the slope followed by video review and optional practice time on your own afterwards. We find that with only one person two full one on one coaching sessions are too intense and counterproductive. Your slope passes will be remain valid for the full 4 hours and you can use the remaining time to practice and consolidate the mornings coaching on your own.
Monthly Training Focus

SEPTEMBER Carving - When carving your turns the best way to change how quickly you turn is to increase or decrease the angle that you tip your skis on to their edges. In this clinic we will develop skills for increasing your angles for high performance carved turns. Most people when they think they are carving are not actively piloting the skis and just set an edge. Quality carving needs the skier to be able to constantly adjust the edge angles.

OCTOBER Balance - Dynamic Balance is key to effective skiing. In this clinic we will work on getting you comfortable being in balance while moving side to side, allowing your skis to tip onto their edges further away from your body as well as improving your balance along the length of your skis to help improve speed control and reduce skidding.

NOV Steering - We will look at the different ways we can steer our skis by blending together the steering elements while being able to separate what your legs are doing from your upper body. Being able to steer the skis in different ways is a very useful skill to posses and is key to good mogul and steeps skiing as well as high performance turns on piste.

DECEMBER Skills for Steep Terrain - To get you more confident skiing black terrain and beyond we will work on the underlying skills for short turns as well as showing you some techniques that will make skiing steeps fun instead of scary!

"It was a superb day and I’m already looking forward to doing the next one." (Nigel K.) April 2019

"Went along to a performance clinic today on pressure control with Inside Out Skiing. It's the first one I've done and have to say it was a fantastic day, learn't a lot and got masses of valuable advice from Rob. The day was well structured allowing for frequent breaks but they weren't wasted time as video footage was used to review what had been covered and areas for improvement. Thanks for a fantastic day! I'm sure I'll be returning!" (George S.) November 2012

"I loved my course on Transitions! I can ski, get down blacks but not stylishly or cleverly and have known for sometime it's some key skills I need to concentrate on which you just won't get at larger group all round lessons. These guys didn't disappoint, they deconstructed my turning to build it up from the start. I won't lie, it's tough physically and mentally but when you feel and see the improvements is a real buzz. Scott was my instructor shadowed by Dave and you couldn't meet two nicer guys who were encouraging and constructive. The video clips at break times were really useful to see your positioning etc. Highly recommended from me! Just choosing the next one to do!" (Lorna M.) August 2012

"Really great session yesterday - Scott! The 'building blocks' clinic should be compulsory for everyone" (Cathy C.) October 2011

"Got back from St Anton last Sunday,  I can’t believe how much my skiing has improved, from carving to short radius turns and I’m even getting the hang of  angulation. A mate reckoned a 50% improvement over last year. I feel I’ve achieved the two goals I set myself when I started with you. Which was to be as good as a mate, I now feel I’m better than him, and to call myself an advanced skier (although you may disagree?). So I’m setting myself a new goal of expert skier!" (Glen C.) 2011

"Just wanted to say how much I appreciate the attention to detail, the individual care, the extra mile gone - what on earth time did you get home today, Rob? - and the sheer fun of the performance clinics. Unusually for me, I can actually sense that I am beginning to make some progress, all of which is down to you guys. Thanks!" (Katherine H.) September 2010

"Once again I presented Rob and Scott with the challenge of my idiosyncratic skiing technique and once again they seem to have found a way of improving it for the better! Great confidence boost, and what's more I don't ache or feel worn out" (Paul G.) February 2010

"An excellent day, with very good teaching and very good company. Everyone visibly improved with the drills we worked on, and the video feedback is so good. Although I started off the day skiing (thanks Scott!) like a chalet girl, I was quite pleased with myself by the end. Lots of exercises and stuff to work on - I'd highly recommend a day like this to anyone." (Rachel) August 2009
