So im a fan of Groupon, I have bought a few things from there over the years, mostly spa days…….. ok ok I’ve only ever bought spa days!
However a few weeks ago I purchased an offer for beginners ski lesson at Chill Factore .
It’s something I’ve been wanting to try for a while and here it was, with around 60% discount! Such a bargain
I had a blast, an icy blast but a blast nonetheless. Once kitted out the instructor Nikki, took my little group of to the nursery slope for our intro to ski. The session last about 1 hour and 50, we covered safety, how to put on/ take of the ski, posture, balance and then up the slope we went.
I managed to master parallel leg gliding and also the plough and plough with turn.
I fell, twice, but hey lost my ski virginity so it’s all good.
After the lesson I was handed my record card and told that I’d passed level 1 and could progress to level 2!!
Before I commit to more lessons I’ve booked a beginners snow board class to see which I prefer.
I can’t wait to see if it’s something new for me to pursue
