J'ai repris confiance sur les ski

Cela faisait plus de 15 ans que je n'avais pas skié, je suis allée à Val Thorens avec mon mari qui est un amoureux de la montagne mais j'appréhendais car j'avais peur de me remettre sur les ski ! J'ai décidé de prendre des cours pour être plus à l'aise et pouvoir profiter avec lui. J'ai pu réserver mes cours très facilement sur le site internet de Les Batons. J'ai reçu toutes les informations sur Kelly, ma monitrice, en amont du cours. Les cours se sont très bien passés, Kelly a été très pédagogue, elle a bien ciblé les exercices pour m'apprendre bien évidemment la technique mais surtout pour me faire reprendre confiance et ainsi m'enlever cette peur que j'avais à chaque fois avant de descendre une piste ! J'ai reçu les photos de mon cours, que j'ai pu montrer à mon mari et une liste d'exercices que Kelly m'avaient fait faire pour que je puisse continuer à les travailler quand j'allais sur les pistes avec lui ! Le plus : les recommandations de Kelly sur les choses à faire dans la station :) top nouvelle école, bonne chance à vous !
