Nexstep Travel top tips for Beginner Skiers #3 Skiing Tips.

Top 10 Tips for Beginners

Number 3. Pick the Right Resort

While some resorts might have all the terrain in the world to choose from, the reality for most is that if it's on one mountain, one type of terrain will dominate the landscape. Look for resorts that have excellent grooming, group friendly programs, and a great ski school. This combination will lead to a resort with a high learning curve.  Speak with one of our Adventure Specialist Today to learn more about what resort would be the best fit for your group.
