NOW FULLY BOOKED - Moguls and Terrain course 2020
Thursday nights 8 – 10pm Starting on the 1st October
As of the 10th Sept class numbers can be a maximum of 8, booking online via - https://eu.jotform.com/KendalSnow/OpenSessions...
The aim of this year’s course is to enable skiers to develop their skills and confidence in all the terrain options you may be faced with in any resort on a skiing holiday.
The first 4 weeks will begin with an easy introduction to bumps and terrain followed in the second 8 weeks by more advanced techniques designed to stretch skiers ability. The aim of these weeks is to give skiers the ability to adapt to changing slope conditions and the confidence to ski both terrain, rollers, individual bumps and banks – and ski down moguls at an appropriate speed and in control. Giving you the confidence to ski any terrain, safely and in control and try runs you may never have considered before.
We will cover how to read the terrain and adapt your skiing to enable you to maintain snow contact and steer in the direction you want to go. In the bumps, to be able to turn both on the tops of bumps and in the ‘rutline’, maintaining a safe, comfortable speed and staying in balance. The intention is always to have fun as well as developing skills and techniques. The techniques and balanced posture learned when skiing the bumps, will improve every area of your skiing.
Bob Park has been skiing for over 50 years, is a level 2 instructor and a freestyle moguls coach.
Tuesday/Friday, Saturday and JD Ski Lessons - A past post caused numerous parents to panic, don't worry as long as you have completed the skiers details link in your letter sent earlier this month that confirms their slot (Fill it in even if you have your on equipment as its your acknowledgment they are returning). Just ensure they are up to date with their memberships only renewable via web site. Payments for the 5 lessons to Xmas are payable on first visit.
All our Friday, Saturday and JD Children's Lesson Invitations have gone out today. Check your emails (or spam!) and complete Skier Measurement Form. We have had to reduce the lessons to once every 2 weeks and staggered start dates. Also please renew your membership before attending as we are not taking memberships in the lodge this season.
Our original self-build lodge ! Much of which still stands today.
Fascinating how open the site was with very few trees next to what was then Kendal Girls High School. Access was then via Castle Garth off the Sedbergh Road, past Parks Garage and alongside the school hockey pitches.

Shame it doesn't get all the way to our club at Canal Head in Kendal...
A fabulous walking route - some in the club have done it all the way to Preston.
