All about ski & snowboard classes at SKI-INN

English Information

It’s not much fun being in Amsterdam if you love to ski or snowboard. After all, we are unlikely to ever get enough snow, let alone mountains. At SKI-INN we offer ski and snowboard classes from absolute beginner to very advanced. The customized surface replicates the feel of real snow, and the slope can be angled in degrees.

SKI-INN is the perfect way to enjoy skiing year round or train before you head out on your next ski trip!

Each class is about 30 minutes long. You have 10 minutes and off.  Continuous skiing covers a distance of approx. 25,000 vertical feet. This is made possible by our revolving slopes, which is similar to how a treadmill works.

The revolving slopes are made with soft nylon fiber carpet, which may feel slightly different but will still require the same techniques, as if you are on the actual thing, nonetheless. There are mirrors in your front or at the base of the slope, which will provide you with immediate feedback about how you perform. It’s hard to estimate how many classes you need as we don’t know your ability to learn techniques. And also, we don’t know the level of proficiency you want to achieve. But we do know that 10 classes are approx. one week of snow instruction.

  • First-time skiers will learn the basics of turning, slowing, and stopping
  • Experienced skiers can brush up on their skills

Classes have a maximum of 4 persons. You either ski or snowboard 3 x 10 minutes with someone else. These 30 minutes are equivalent to half a day in the snow. We cannot book ski and snowboard together.

Children

Your children are welcome to take classes from 5 year old and shoe size 30. Snowboard classes start at 1o years and shoe size 34. Children under the age of 13 cannot be booked alone, so you book 2 classes if you want one child to ski/snowboard. We advise parents to join their kids’ classes. Friends and other family members are also welcome to join. Helmets are available and obligatory for children until the age of 13.
