“People waste time and money on skiing lessons abroad!” says UK-based ski-school

On average beginners spend three days of their holiday learning at a cost of £300, says indoor snowslope Snozone.
Novice skiers and snowboarders spend up to £300 on lessons in resort, taking up three days of their holiday, according to new research.
A survey done by indoor real snowslope Snozone also found 43 per cent of people regretted not having lessons in the UK before going away. The survey asked more than 2,200 people who have been on a ski or snowboard holiday in the last five years.

The message is clear – learning to ski abroad is a costly waste of your time. Far better, then, to find somewhere cheaper and closer to home – such as the company who paid for this blatant advertorial, UK indoor skislope company Snozone.
A spokesperson for Snozone, which has slopes in Milton Keynes and Castleford, said: “For complete beginners, learning to ski or snowboard can be an intimidating experience, so learning before you go will give you confidence to make the first few days much more enjoyable.
“Getting slope ready is not just about learning the basics but also about getting in the best possible condition. A week’s skiing or snowboarding is physically demanding so it pays to be prepared.”
