Sirdal Fjellpark Ski school is open during weekends and holidays
“The ski school is for everyone who wants to learn to ski – regardless of level and experience.
We offer personalised training for anyone aged seven and above, irrespective of skill level, at Hulderheimen.
It’s also possible to book ski lessons for groups of up to 5 people with similar skill levels. If participants are at different levels, we recommend separate lessons.
Ski passes are included for participants in the ski school. Ski equipment, if needed, must be rented separately.
Level 1 – prerequisite: none
Beginner course for those who want to learn basic skiing. We help you become familiar with the equipment and practice gliding, turning, and braking.
Level 2 – prerequisite: ability to turn and brake on green slopes.
We refine the technique to become even more confident on the slopes. We work on skiing with parallel skis and gaining better control and flow in skiing. For snowboarding: practice stopping and becoming comfortable with the heel and toe sides of the board.
Level 3 – prerequisite: ability to ski controlled in easier slopes (blue and green runs).
We further develop skiing techniques. We aim to achieve fluency and safety when moving on most types of slopes, regardless of the degree of difficulty. For snowboarding: learning to have a better flow in turns.
Level 4 – prerequisite: good technical control on all types of runs.
We refine the technique and learn to handle skis on different surfaces and varied terrain according to the skier’s preference.”
Tips for those under 7 years old
Once they have mastered these skills, they will be ready for lessons and make much faster progress.
- Put on and take off skis independently
- Get up on their own after a fall
- How to get up and walk uphill – practice walking sideways
- Maintain balance while standing, put the skis in a snowplow position to maintain balance without sliding forward
- Turn and go around on very gentle slopes. Let them ski and snowplow until they stop, and let them try to cross the slope on skis.
