Who are they for?Our 2 hour Premium Private coaching sessions are for skiers at levels 4 - 10 on our ability scale. In a one-to-one private session (or with others from your own household) we will provide a completely dedicated coaching session, focusing on your ski development at a pace you are happy with. If you are a beginner please contact the Snow Centre directly for a range of options available for new skiers.
Typical Private Coaching sessionsYou will have 30 minutes on-slope time to do some warm up runs if you wish and then meet your coach at the appointed time on the slope. The session will begin with a discussion of what your goals are for that session along with any longer term goals you may have. We will watch you ski for a couple of runs and then agree with you a plan for the skills you could work on. During the on-snow session we will suggest a number of ski drills and exercises to help you focus on the skills you are developing, offering individual feedback. While you are skiing we will take a number of video clips, for analysis in the final part of the coaching session. At the end of the coaching session we will review your video footage. This is done in the comfort of the Snow Centre's cafe, with the video footage presented on a laptop computer so we can step through the video on a frame by frame basis.
What's IncludedThe session includes rental equipment hire (skis, boots, helmet), slope pass and two hours of coaching with video feedback. Your 2 hour slope pass is active 30 minutes before you meet your coach for your instruction (subject to slope opening times) and you are welcome to warm up on the slope prior to your session.
Premium Private Coaching for groupsWe can run sessions for families or groups of friends up to 4 people total for an additional £100 per person.

I really enjoyed the ski lesson and thank you so much for your time and patience!” (Alison M.) Jan 2016
"Just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for the great lesson I had with you at Hemel, thanks to you I had a fantastic time in Val D'Isere and the technique fell into place perfectly. As the week progressed I worked on all of the stuff that you taught me and slowly but surely it started to work and by the end of the week I was up on the top of the Tignes glacier tackling the wonderful red off the top and skiing from edge to edge and feeling in perfect control. Rest assured I shall be having some lessons later this year to ensure that my next trip is even better." (Simon S.) April 2011
"Had a private lesson yesterday with Rob from Inside Out Skiing at Hemel Snow Centre. I just wanted to say how great I thought it was. I'm not that experienced with skiing, and in fact barring a single hour's skiing over Christmas, I hadn't skied for 18 years, and even then I'd only done a few weeks. When I started the lesson, I was not very controlled and not very confident. By the end, I had not only improved my technique, but my confidence was far, far higher and I also have a lot to take away and practice the next time I go. Added to that, Rob was so generous with his time and experience, that I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend Inside Out Skiing to anyone looking for some tuition!" (Martin D.) January 2011
"Many thanks for another really good day of coaching. This really is the best thing that's happened to my skiing since I stopped snowploughing. Rob is really excellent at spotting the tiny details of what you're doing wrong and then coming up with ways to correct it and the very thorough video feedback just reinforces that. I think it's fair to say my skiing has improved considerably since the first session." (Cathy) October 2009
