I appreciate this is a old question but I have a variation. Mrs Smoothie and I are intermediate skiers with 15 weeks over 12 years experience. Every couple of years we splash out on a couple of hours private tuition to keep things sharp.
This year I have a limited budget and am trying to decide which is best. 1 day (4 hours) of private tuition for the two of us or 3 days (4 hours per day) of ski school.
Ski school looks tempting because it means a solid 3 days of drills, skills, and learning.
Any tips, thoughts, suggestions etc?
Not sure how the costs would work out but, if possible, I also think it would be better to opt for 2 x 2 hour lessons on successive days rather than a single big block - there is only so much you can absorb in one go plus a full days lesson could be extremely tiring.
If you can take 2x half day private lessons with a day off in between to practice you will likely gain the most progression for the same cost as a full day. Try to book with the same instructor (or if different, the instructors should brief each other on whats going on). This is so they know what skills you're developing and how you're going about it. Giving you the most effective lesson.
If thats not an option a full day private lesson is still a great choice.
