HOW THE SKI DECK® WILL HELP YOU


BEGINNERS
For beginners we have developed a specific course of six individual lessons designed to give novices an opportunity to reach an advanced standard before arriving in the resort, and so make the most of every minute of their ski holiday.

CHILDREN
Children generally learn faster than adults but lessons on the SKI DECK® guarantee a safe transition onto the snow. Special classes for children are conducted every weekday afternoon.

INTERMEDIATE SKIERS
With the help of our qualified instructors, the SKI DECK® will improve your style enormously, strengthen your overall skiing, will eliminate any bad habits and give you the confidence to tackle all the ski runs on your next holiday.

ADVANCED SKIERS
For anyone who wishes to perfect their skiing technique the SKI DECK® is the ideal medium. Under the guidance of experienced instructors you can learn powder, wedel, short-swing & slalom racing techniques.

POSSIBLE PROBLEM
LEARNING ON SNOW
LEARNING ON THESKI DECK®
FEAR OF FALLING
The fear of falling is only overcome when full control of movement is achieved.
A fixed bar supports the student while the surface rotates, so he can concentrate fully on the exercises without fear.
FEAR OF SPEED
The natural fear of gaining speed leads to panic, resulting in falls and accidents.
Speed is controlled by the instructor so the pupil cannot gain speed or lose control.
FEAR OF COLLIDING WITH OTHER SKIERS
Every beginner slope is crowded and this is a constant danger. Loss of concentration, panic movements and overall poor performance are the result.
Only two people use a Ski Deck at one time. Each skier is carefully controlled by an instructor so there is no fear of collision.
CROWDED CLASSES
Most ski classes comprise from 10 - 15 students, so although this is an inexpensive way of learning it is the least effective. Private lessons in ski resorts are pricey and much of the time is wasted waiting in lift queues and riding lifts.
The instructors' full attention is assured as no more than 2 or 3 people are taught at once. There is no time wasted returning to the top or replacing equipment.
LANGUAGE
Ski schools in Europe employ European ski instructors. Some instructors are not necessarily fluent in English. (Afrikaans is not used on the Ski Decks as English terminology will be encountered in the resorts)
All SKI DECK instructors are English-speaking and come from Canada, USA, New Zealand, Australia, Britain or South Africa.
COLD WEATHER
Intense cold and snowy conditions in ski resorts can hamper learning and result in cold, stiffness and a lack of interest.
The SKI DECK is not affected by weather variations.
SPEED OF LEARNING
Learning to ski on snow is somewhat slow and tedious. It can weeks before the pupil can ski freely and enjoy himself. Many beginners lose their spirit within this time.
Lessons are intensive and tuition is personal, so learning time is reduced to a matter of hours..
POSSIBILITY SUSTAINING AN INJURY
Modern equipment has greatly reduced the possibility of injury. However, statistics show that most accidents occur on beginners slopes.
The design of the SKI DECK and its many safety factors make the chance of injury virtually impossible.
THE ENVIRON MENT
Ski slopes vary in size, steepness, and types of snow cover, making it very difficult for the student to repeat exercises under constant conditions.
The surface of the SKI DECK remains constant throughout the course, making the learning process far easier.
