Mark Dann Owner of Beyond Extreme
Paragliding & Ski Instructor with over 35 years experience worldwide.
Mark has worked as a Ski Instructor at Nevis Range Scotland for the last 6 seasons.
We operate Ski lessons when Nevis Range Resort is open and snow conditions are good. Our lessons are 2 hour slots
10am to 12pm & 1.30pm to 3.30pm.
We keep everything simple, so its £100 per person for a 2 hour lesson regardless of age and level. The group size you will be in is a maximum of 4 people, but on quiet times this could be 1 to 1.
(not included in the price is lift pass or equipment I will put links below for these)
Please see below and make a note of your level.
(Not used ski lifts)
(Can use ski lifts)
Never Skied before or coming back after a long lay off, we start right from the basics.

Can ski a little and use basic ski lifts and ski at least beginner green slopes.
Can use all lifts and ski at least Blue Intermediate Slopes.

"Free Ski Friday"
Nevis Local Primary Kids
I will be offering local primary school children around the Nevis Range area free Beginner Skiing taster sessions on Friday afternoons. Maximum 6 in a group and must be complete beginners.
All you need to do is hire your equipment and purchase a lift pass.
My services from 1.30pm to 3.30pm are free.
(Try to be completely ready 15 mins before the start of the lesson)
I will also keep ski records and offer progression lessons, but priority is given for beginners.
As a general guideline, if your child can ride a bike or capable of learning to ride a bike, they can learn to ski.
I have already started a list so please get in touch by text or contact form, If you are interested.
To make it fare I will just go through the list in the order from when it came in.
Please be patient as I promise to fit you in the best I can.
How it works
I will keep an eye on the weather and message the relevant 6 people a few days before the Friday to see if you are available.
If we are booked in with me, you will then need to book your ski hire and lift pass. Links above.
Remember you have to pay for your hire and pass but my services are free.
On the Day
With weather conditions, skiing lifts etc can be cancelled last minute. You need to keep an eye on the Nevis Range website to see if it is open.
If open I will be waiting by ski hire at the bottom at 1.15pm. I will travel up with the children and also make sure they are down safe with me at the end of the lesson.
