You can ski... Yes you can!
Race downhill with your friends and let your joy loose in the powdered snow... launch yourself down the slope with tears in your eyes... of velocity! Fight through the burn in your muscles and arrive, victorious, at the foot of a wall of vertical bumps...
Would you be cut off from all this just because you were never left in a snow sports lesson when you were small? Nonsense! Because it would be a shame to deprive you of the pleasures of skiing, and because it is never too late to start off, the Portes du Soleil has launched You Can Ski, a package specially designed for adult beginners.
Giving its name to the different resorts of the area, You Can Ski has two different options:
- The adult, 6 day package - 269 euros, which includes: The pass for access to the ski lifts and the slopes: 5 sectorial days (in the resort of choice) and 1 Portes du Soleil day (access to the whole area) + 6 half-days of group instruction in the morning with a qualified instructor + 6 days rental of equipment adapted for beginners, helmet included.
- The adult, 3 day package - 169 euros, which includes: The pass for access to the ski lifts and the slopes: 3 sectorial days (in the resort of choice) + 3 half-days of group instruction in the morning with a qualified instructor + 3 days rental of equipment adapted for beginners, helmet included.
And to start yourself off with complete confidence, these courses are given in specific areas, reserved for beginners and secure, such as the sites of Plateau and Proclou, at Avoriaz, a slope of 1.3 km kept outside the path of other skiers; or the Mappys area of Les Gets, consisting of two conveyor belts, a tow rope and a rope lift for skiing on four gentle slopes.
