So you’ve made the decision and booked your first skiing holiday. They say once you have Skied once you will want to do it every year! When it snows in Ireland it usually causes chaos but a Skiing holiday represents a winter wonderland, with acres of mountains and slopes waiting to be explored. You just need a little practice before you take on The Alps!
The Beacon Hotel is lucky enough to be located within walking distance of Ireland’s indoor Ski Centre.
Revolving slopes are indoors, perfect skiing conditions are guaranteed with plenty of ski time to help you get ready for your skiing holiday.
What you can expect when you book your Skiing Lesson:
Just like real skiing, you’ll be able to practice turn after turn without stopping allowing you to better simulate real ski runs.Typically you’ll spend 30 mins on the slope in every hour, that’s the equivalent of 11km, (Mt Everest is 9klm tall). Quite literally you can enjoy the longest ski runs in the world! Safe for beginners, vital for experts, even the Swiss Race team use the centre to train!So whether you are looking to up your skills before a ski holiday or just want to be able to ski year round the ski centre is the perfect place for a visit. If Skiing is not for you, they also offer snowboarding sessions and climbing sessions. Snowboard sessions are also perfect for improving your skills. Snowboards are supplied and an instructor is included in every lesson.
Key Snowboard times:
Tuesday 6pm -10pm
Saturday 10am – 4pm
No ropes, no harness, the amazing wall design allows you climb for longer whilst staying a few feet off the ground. Great fun for adults and kids!
