Help I'm useless


Just had first skiing lesson at an indoor snow slope. Seven in group and i was the only one who did not 'get it', not even a snow plough ! Instructor just kept pushing ahead with rest. Don't know wether to try again, husband so disappointed because he can ski and wants to go on holiday. Any advice welcome.

If I were you, I would give it another go! I remember my first lesson at an indoor slope and hated it to begin with, I just never thought I'd get it. By lesson three, something just 'clicked' and I haven't looked back since! Honestly, keep trying and it will all pay off.
Good luck

Sounds to me like that instructor wasn't really doing his job well if he was able to adapt what he was teaching to fit everyones ability and help everyone improve! Don't let it put you off. Try again with another instructor and you might get on better.

hi i am james williums


Experts agree; your most important investment in ski equipment is your ski boots. Choosing the right ski boots makes the difference between an enjoyable ski holiday and one thatís filled with discomfort or even cut short by injury. - click here to read entire entry____________

Definitely do not give up!! Each time you try you'll get better...maybe try to find a better teacher next time or take a private lesson. Sometimes group lessons are too chaotic.

Don't give up! Just keep trying and you will get it and once you get it you will feel so accomplished and proud of yourself and ready to show off to your husband.

I agree with SkiAssistant, The instructor was not doing their job.
Good on you for having a go. Trying is worth 3 points!
Keep at it & you will get there.
Cheers

As others have said please don't give up. Took me around 3 years to even learn to turn on a snowboard and now love it. Everyone learns at different rates and teaching should always be done to the ability of the slowest learner. Maybe ask to be put in a different group or have a private lesson. Otherwise go on holiday with your husband and book into ski lessons. Stick with it.
