Skiing for all ages in a friendly environment with the advice of a qualified instructor (from 55 years old)
Who are these courses for?
For all seniors, aged 55 years and older, who wish to put their skis back on after many years. As they may lack the time or a partner to ski with, this opportunity is ideal for them.
Seniors who want to keep learning or wish to sharpen their techniques, alone or with a small group of people of similar age and needs.
People who want to be guided safely by an instructor certified in both Switerland and France, who will listen, advise and adapt to their rhythm in a friendly environment.
Why a programme specifically designed for seniors?
It is well known that good health and actively participating in sports are linked. Why not skiing ? Why not take advantage of the proximity and beauty of the worlds’ most attractive skiing region ? Why should age be an issue to enjoy this so appreciated sport?
The Swiss Ski School of Geneva offers a la carte courses taking all factors into consideration. Physical capacity is not the same at 60 as at 40. This may lead to accidents that could have been avoided if they had been better guided.
Some useful advice
Ensure your equipment has been professionally tuned/repaired and is in good condition (bindings, sharp edges).
Helmet is not mandatory but still highly recommended.
While skiing can be learned at any age, basic skills (e.g. parallel turns) are important, and it is helpful if you have already learned them before.
Senior rate from 65 years old onwards at ski lifts and free from 75 years old.
A welcome drink is also offered!
