Ski Area
Baqueira-Beret, Spain
Is considered Spain's premier resort and is a short two hour transfer from Toulouse airport.

The slopes are split into three distinct but well-connected areas - Baqueira, Beret and Bonaigua - with long, intermediate runs, practically all of them on open, treeless slopes. Most are above 1800m with extensive snowmaking and for those considering offsite skiing there is extensive terrain with three un-groomed itinerary runs that are avalanche controlled. A review in the Telegraph is very favourable!

Coaching
The coaching will be comprised of four half day sessions and one full day, allowing you a free day to explore. The course will develop your performance in all fundamental skiing skills and will help you to ski better in steeper terrain, icy slopes, poor visibility, small bumps and chopped up snow on the edges of the pistes.

Group size will be no more than eight per coach. We will make extensive use of video feedback, with analysis and review sessions held in your hotel in the evenings or on the hill in a convenient bar or restaurant. Our coaching sessions will be delivered by the same ski coaches who run Inside Out Skiing's programme at the Snow Centre in Hemel Hempstead so you may already know them and they may already know your skiing, ensuring each coaching holiday gets off to a flying start!
