My Slope8 experience

First time visiting Slope8. Special thanks to skier and GTFish. It was real fun and can't imagine I could still ski in a HK summer.

After taking my last winter off even I live in a snow country, I obviously lost my skiing sense. It took me a while to gain my confident back on the small deck. Lucky that skier and GT were both there to help and gave me lot of tips. After 15mins or so, I finally able to relax and ski properly.

It was a real work out on the small deck. I was sweating a lot after the 10mins run. I could say it is a REALLY good ski training equipment. Not only good for waking up your ski muscle before the winter, it is also very good to train all your basic. Reason is that you really can't cheat on the deck. In order to ski smoothly on the small deck, you need to have your weight transfer and timing right.

Thanks again for skier and GT.

- Brian

What about the idea of moving back to live in HK during the summer months, then you can practice at on the small deck every other day. ;)
Just kidding. :D

我都試過去"Slope8",在我而言、絕對唔適合初學者,完全係兩回事。仲有、除非妳買左成個Program或者買左好多個鐘頭La,否則、如果好似我咁想先買一個鐘頭試下咁呢,個教練會諗住你買得一個鐘,根本未必再返黎上第二堂,就會教得又晦氣又求其,未夠鐘就己經催你除鞋走,唔好阻住下一位。

但係"Slope8" 唔係只得一個教練,可能只係我地兩個人唔好彩,撞着個無責任心既都唔定,但係以佢地咁既收費,撞正D咁既教練,你都咪話唔火滾。響度提醒各位,如果去"Slope8" 度,大家記住要載護踭同手套,因為你並唔係響D雪度練習、而係響張地氈度練,一跌一按一磨、即時損手爛腳。

Whether you take one lesson or buy a package has nothing to do with the instructors -- meaning that they do not have a commission.

Actually the decks are very good for BEGINNERS, and most 'students' are absolute beginners, and can swear by it that they learn the basics well either in skiing or snowboarding. And thus enjoy their subsequent ski trip(s). And there are many return students.

It is unfortunate that you did not have a good learning experience. Perhaps the particular instructor had a bad day and so not doing a good job. One can choose a different instructor if one does not like the previous instructor.

By the way, the lesson is 55 minutes and not one hour, giving time for change over to the next lesson.

Anybody else care to share their experiences at Slope8, good or bad?

I am happy to share my learning experience at Slope8. In my opinion, the environment and facilities are safe and good enough for learning and practice, especially learner can visualize their posture and motion through the mirror. Meanwhile, the instructors, Sam and John, are very professional and responsible. I would definitely recommend Slope8 to others if they want to learn or practice skiing.

I think Slope8 is good for the novice, a good work out too.

I still remember Skier had taught me skiing!
It is good for me to pick up some basic skills.
I m thinking to come back again during the discount rate :)

But for SB, i had too much "bad posture", which made me difficult to ride at the deck.

Will, teach me when u come back ah~~~

My gf learnt her basic at slope8 as well, she only spent 2 x 30mins lessons and went to real slope already. She love the instructor and equipment there and would like to go there for a proper "S" lesson. I think it was Skier taught her. :)

I am quite positive with Slope8.

My wife had bad experiences in some of ski resort and couldn't learn much and gave up skiing for a period of time. A few years ago, I took her to Slope8 for a couple lessons when we were in HK for holidays. She learned the basic skills all over again and performed well in a ski trip later that year. The instructor (I believed it was Anthony) was patient and helpful throughout the lesson and we even videotaped the lesson so that she could review and refresh every now and then.

In my opinion, taking lessons is trying to build new skills in our toolbox, which is a vital stip in a learning process. Once we have enough skillsets in our toolbox, the next step is how to use them more effectively and build the confidence. For my wife's case, she already has the knowledge and skills she needs at her level, only that she need to practise more and trust her skills. Once she can build up the confidence, she then can move up to the next level and definitely can enjoy more.

For the past few years, I spent a great deal of time and effort and tried to move up the skills and level, but the improvement is still not very satisfactory...any good suggestions?

Skier - does Slope8 has any program or lesson for intermediates to improve the skills?:)

I also skied the slope8 once. The small desk is quite interesting and safe. Fell a few times and the instructor offered free help. Not a bad bet, I ll say.

Get all the books from Harald Harb. For more details you can check the two footed release thread. If you also know skating you can also consider slalom on steep road but this is a pretty dangerous move.

i love line graphics

The small deck is excellent to train for the more advanced skiers. Many advanced skiers, including instructor level skiers practice on the small deck before each ski season. If you come to HK let me know.

Improvement in skiing is not easy, and that is why, in a way, skiing is more interesting than snowboarding because there are so much to learn.

I have had my CSIA Level 2 for 18 years now. And I go to PDP (Professional Development Program) every two years or so (required by CSIA). I have never stopped learning. Only these 2 years I think I made some improvements in my skiing. Basically not enough days of skiing each year. Understanding and knowing the technique and doing it well, are two different things. :)

Besides, what Carver_hk-ski suggested, I think Warren Smith is good -- as I have suggested in another thread on his 45 min "Go Ski".

For me, the small deck is excellent for training but not for fun. The purpose is not to simulate the skiing environment but to "simulate" the muscle movement. Provided that you get a good instructor, eg Freeskier, you can do all sorts of training even for advanced skiers.

This requirement is only for Level 2 and up, right?

Thanks skier for your suggestions - I will definitely try the small deck next time when I'm in HK.
