Ultimate Guide to learning to Ski: Intro

For those of us who haven’t grown up with a pair of skis strapped to our feet, flying down the slopes like we were being chased by an angry gorilla, skiing is a daunting prospect. There’s just something about throwing yourself down a mountain on a glorified pair of planks that seems to put people off.
Well congratulations, you’re about to have the best experience of your life. Here at Interactive Resorts, we like to make you as comfortable as possible with your first ski experience, so we’ve decided to give you a step by step guide to the magical sport you’re about to fall in loe with. Before I get started on this though, I’d like to take the time to point out that at no point does this internet guide replace the value of actual lessons.
Unfortunately, it’s not possible to learn how to ski from an internet guide, although I do understand why you might want to. In reality the most I can do is point you in the right direction. Having thought long and hard about how to go about that, I decided I was looking at this the wrong way. Instead of detailing the minute by minute process of learning to ski, I should be focusing on the most common mistakes and bad habits people pick up while learning to ski. So without further ado I compiled a list of rookie errors that all new skiers make (and some experienced skiers too!)
