If this sounds a little scary, you’ll be glad to know that there are 23 green slopes that are ideal for total beginners, with access to a special beginner’s ski ticket. If you’re travelling in a mixed-ability party, there are also 12 black slopes for the experienced skiers among you.
Get expert instruction
If you want to really up your skiing skills, you can hire an instructor who will teach you everything you need to know. With a lesson lasting around two hours, you will then be free to try out what you’ve learned. Choose a group lesson or go for one on one instruction. Patient and experienced, your instructor will answer any questions you have. You’ll be mastering the nursery slopes in no time at all!
So don’t delay! Samoens is a fantastic place for you to learn the skiing ropes. You’ll never want to leave!
