£119 Midweek (Apr-Nov)
£129 Weekend/Bank/School Holidays/Winter Midweek (Dec-Mar)Skills Clinics are designed for recreational skiers who are looking to build a strong foundation of technical skills. We have a maximum group size of 8, and use extensive individual feedback and video analysis to help you improve. To develop your all-round skiing we have a different skills focus each month, covering areas such as carving, skills for steep terrain, mogul skiing etc.
Who are they for?Skills Clinics are for skiers at levels 6, 7 and 8 on our ability scale. If you are level 9 and 10 you will also benefit if that month's skills focus is a broad area you wish to develop.
Typical Skills ClinicBased on three 90-minute sessions with breaks during the day. Each clinic begins with a brief warm-up so we are ready to ski. During each session we will use a number of drills and exercises to introduce or develop a particular skill. You will be given time to practice that drill until you make good progress with it. For those who make very quick progress we will make the drill more demanding, to ensure you develop that skill as much as possible.
Typical timetable10.00am - 11.30am Session 1
11.30am - 12.00pm Coffee break video analysis
12.00pm - 1.30pm Session 2
1.30pm - 2.30pm Lunch plus video analysis
2.30pm - 4.00pm Session 3 & wrap up

Minimum NumbersShould a full day group clinic have only one or two people booked on it we will run the course as an extended private session consisting of two 90 minute sessions on the slope with video review during a break in between. We find that with only one or two people a full day with three 90 minute sessions is too intense and counterproductive. Your slope pass will be remain valid for the full day and you can use the remaining time to practice and consolidate the days coaching.
Our clinics include:• Small group sizes
• Individual feedback
• Video analysis
• Ski pass & equipment hire
• Work with the same coaches
• Ski with the same friends

Client reviews of Skills ClinicsIf you would like to review an Inside Out Skiing course you've been on please click here.
"Had a fantastic day with Inside Out. My wife and I attended a skills clinic day to help us start to learn carving. We were at a lower level than the rest of the class but that didn't hinder anyone as Rob tailored the course to each person and ensured all of us progressed at the level correct for us. By the end of the day we were going faster than we've ever gone before but with much more control, we started to really engage our edges and learnt how to feel when it's right and when it's wrong. One comment from a fellow attendee was that my wife was a different skier at the end of the session compared to the start. Great day, money well spent indeed. Thanks guys" (David F.) July 2016
“I had a really great day today - it is the first time bumps have felt vaguely fun rather than a necessary (and scary) evil.” (Claire M.) September 2015
"The whole day was very well planned and managed. The individual exercises/drills were carefully selected, clearly explained and nicely linked with the overall Short Turns and Steep Terrain theme. Feedback was clear and precise, demonstrated good incite and was delivered in such a way as to inspire improvement and I there really was an improvement for me. You made very effective use of the available terrain – it was one of the most enjoyable days I have spent at an indoor ski centre." Ian C., November 2011
"After attending a few of the day based skills clinics and having been impressed with the quality of instruction, the “Introduction to Racing” achieved a new level of excellence in training. I enjoyed this thoroughly. Well done Rob and Scott." Frank D., June 2010
"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 C., October 2009
"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 Q., August 2009
