Book yourself a lesson

Try a new discipline!

You may have ventured to the mountains many times before but only have tried one discipline. Use the New Year to try a new discipline. On Maison Sport we now offer 11 different disciplines including skiing, snowboarding, telemark, cross country, ski touring, off-piste guiding and sit ski to name a few. Step out of your comfort zone and take up something new, even just for one day of fun!

Visit a new resort

If you find yourself consistently going back to the same resort time and time again, take yourself somewhere new this year. With thousands of ski resorts in Europe you have a massive selection of resorts to choose from. We have written about a few ‘hidden gem’ ski resorts that you may not have heard of before in this blog here. Think less overcrowding, shorter queues at the lifts, and more reasonable pricing. You will find our fantastic independent instructors operating across a huge range of European ski resorts- both large and small alike.

Earn your turns!

The closure of ski lifts during the pandemic saw a huge rise in backcountry ski touring, involving using specialist equipment to ‘walk’ uphill, before riding untouched snow back down the mountain. This can seem daunting at first, but think of the social uphill climbs, panoramic views and untouched descents. You will see ski touring as an option when you book your lessons and you will be able to choose an instructor who can show you the ropes! You will be able to speak to your instructor in advance of the lesson so they will be able to set you up with the right touring gear and safety equipment ready to try your next challenge.

It’s time to jump into 2023 with some exciting new adventures.
