Well looks like i've landed on my feet. I've just found out that my work has a ski & snowboarding club. They organise 2 trips a year. This year they have been to switzerland & is currently in the alps somewhere. Looks like i'll be heading off with them next year.
In the mean time i'm gonna head through to the indoor place. £80 for a four hour leasson. Its probably gonna take longer than that to learn and i'll probably just be falling down a lot, but at least it'll give me a chance to see if im gonna be really into it.
First day is gonna be challenging, you will fall on your ass alot lulz (most likely). First day i was falling down alot trying to learn how to stop and turn but second day i was going through green course w no problems.
Dont give up...and trust me you will reep the benefits later on.
Also these videos are good if you wanna look at em before you go. It will give you some insight on what the trainer will be talking about.
