LEARN TO SKI BEFORE YOU GO
THE SKI DECK in FERNDALE has "ski training machines" for teaching beginner, intermediate and advanced skiers. Because local instruction and snow conditions are less than ideal it would be very wise to consider taking some lessons on the Ski Deck prior to your local ski experience - to: give you knowledge of the basics of skiing and ski equipment; reduce your chances of injury; make the most of your time on the snow (especially as you are probably only going for a few days).
The Ski Deck has recently devised a Special Course (of 3 x 1 hour lessons) for Local Skiers, designed to take you quickly to a comfortable level. The cost of this course is R960 - normal price R1260.
Intermediate and advanced skiers would benefit considerably in technique, style and fitness by also availing themselves of this excellent offer (only available to local skiers).
SKI FIT PROGRAM Alternatively people who have skied before may wish to join our SKI FIT PROGRAM -- where every year skiers train on the Ski Deck on a weekly basis and gain tremendous advancement in technique and fitness. Classes are casual and relaxed and generally a trip is taken to ski locally at Afriski in the Malutis (Lesotho) - Any skier who is interested may phone Lew Campbell on 011 781 6528 This is also a good place to meet other skiers and gain information on local skiing.
