Lead instructor / coach: Alan Eason
You decide when you would like some technical coaching during the Engadin ski marathon week, and how many hours you may require. This give you flexibility to fit in the coaching and your skiing each day.
Are you thinking of taking part in the 2023 Engadin ski marathon and need the odd lesson during your trip to the Engadin valley.
We are able to offer lessons on demand each day of your trip, these could be early morning, all day, part day, or later in the day, it is your choice.
This is a good complement to the work that you may have done on roller skis during the summer, you may have been working with one of our instructors over the summer and wish to carry on with them on snow.
Have you been roller skiing over the summer, have limited holidays left with work, and still wish to fit in one of most exciting cross country ski races held each winter.
Training & Instruction
We will start all lessons with the fundamentals of skating, and we will build on each step of learning to skate to refine your technique.
Each lesson we will work on all the techniques required in skating to make you a better skier, you also have the option to classic ski as well, and we will teach the same core elements of classic skiing as we do with skating.
What can we offer
You tell us what you would like to achieve, or we will look at your technique and pick the most key point to work on to gain the most from your lesson time.
This is for all levels of skier, and we would recommend that some time is taken on roller skis over the summer months to gain some technical level of skiing before the trip.
From the UK to Zurich or Innsbruck, A good number of airlines fly from all major airports in the UK to Zurich or Innsbruck, we recommend that you try to book the earliest flight possible and also the last flight back to the UK, this will give plenty of time for transfers into the Engadin valley by the connecting train from Zurich airport.
It is also possible to fly into Innsbruck and then take the train to Pontresina, transfer times from Zurich or Innsbruck take about 3 hours.
The other option is to travel from London to Paris then onto Zurich via train, then the connecting train service into the Engadin valley.
