Private Lessons are a great choice to get personalised instruction that moves at a pace that fits you. Through a strategic mix of theoretical lessons and practical sessions, class participants become comfortable with the game both on and off the snow. Because we concentrate on small groups you get more from each session. Perfect for couples, families and friends.

FLA will give you bespoke lessons based upon your level of experience and learning outcomes.

Beginners will be taught the fundamentals of posture, controlling your speed and direction and progression onto drag lifts and chair lifts.

Intermediates can expect to build upon the fundamentals, developing your technique and moving onto more challenging pistes.

Advanced riders/skiers can expect to be shown the entire resort, discovering hidden gems and refining technique.

The following is a brief outline of what is covered on the course:

  • guidance on being a Mental Health First Aider

  • attitudes to mental health issues

  • equalities

  • the recovery message

  • the impact of alcohol and drugs on mental health

The course does not train people to be mental health workers. It offers basic general information about mental health problems. The knowledge presented and understanding developed in the course helps to remove stigma and fear and to give confidence in approaching a person in distress.


Mental Health First Aid is an initial response to distress and all participants on the course understand that this help is given only until other suitable or professional help can be found.
