SKI training

SKI training in SNOWLIKE studio in Chicago

Beginner skiers

Learn to use your equipment in a warm, comfortable setting. Discover the basics of stopping, turning, and more in preparation for a fun day in the snow.

In the first lesson, beginners will become familiar with equipment, learn to stop, control speed, balance, edge control, and more by skiing, usually about 10 times, from the top to the bottom of our stationary carpeted slope.

In the second lesson, most beginners are ready to go onto the revolving carpet and further the skills they started to develop in the first lesson, AND learn to turn and lots more.

Most people* take the first two lessons together, as in the same hour, continuing on with the second lesson right after the first one. Each 30 minute lesson thereafter on our revolving carpet simulates a full day of exercise on the slope.

*NOTE: We teach children as young as two years old. Children 2-6 years old will usually need to take the first lesson on the stationary carpet more than once before they might be ready to ski or snowboard on the revolving carpet. The really young children as young as two, three, and four might benefit from instruction only on the stationary carpet as the revolving carpet might be a bit much for their legs to handle. We will evaluate each situation on a case-by-case basis as we have had some very young children on the revolving carpet after many lessons on the stationary carpet. It just depends on each child learning at their own pace which is only one of the many many benefits to the one on one instruction that we provide for all ages and abilities.

It is very beneficial to have lessons both on the stationary and the revolving carpet, especially for beginners. There is no limit to what we can teach on both the stationary and the revolving carpet. Usually a combination of the two is best. On the stationary carpet it actually feels very similar to going down a hill on snow because you are going downhill and get to feel the sensation of controlling your balance, your speed, stopping and turning and lots more.

On the revolving carpet while the sensation of the carpet rolling underneath your skis is different then the sensation of going down a hill, it is very beneficial to be able to repeat the same movement over and over and over until it becomes an ingrained habit so that when you get to the snow it quickly transfers and helps you to have a lot more fun in the early part of your vacation instead of having to wait till the end when it's starting to feel good but it's time to go home…

Intermediate skiers

If you understand the basics of skiing, our lessons will help you develop the skills necessary to become more advanced. Learn to carve turns with a quiet upper body, which will help you to be more efficient, use less energy and have better control.

Skiers - try our Shaped Skis: Learn the subtle differences in technique using shaped skis requires and learn why most skiers love the feeling of carving turns with less effort on shaped skis.

Advanced skiers

Experienced skiers will improve and fine-tune existing skills. Get a great work-out with exercises for bumps, steeps, powder and racing. Top racers use the revolving carpet to hone their edge sensitivity, improve muscle memory, and to develop "quick feet" for racing. Use the same specific muscles and motions as skiing.

A 3 Lesson program of customized learning sessions is a great way to prepare for a fun vacation! We teach everyone with Private Instruction. Our lesson programs have helped many people to get on and off the beginner's hill quickly, and to enjoy the top of the mountain in their first days on the snow. We work with you on your total technique to help you master a higher skill level.

We recommend multiple 3 lesson programs for most people if you really want to learn to ski and create some good habits that will be more likely to transfer to the snow when you get there. Even 1 or 2 lessons is better than none and will help you to enjoy your first day on snow each year.

Skiers of all abilities will see their skills advance quickly through these goal-orientated programs based on progressive instruction techniques. Each lesson will build upon skills previously learned. We recommend a private lesson program as a great start to have a FUN vacation!
