LFA Friday Night Training Sessions
The first ever training blocks of LFA will be at Midlothian Snowsports Centre on Friday evenings from 7-8:30pm.
Sessions are split into two 4-week blocks, which run independently of each other. These sessions are full training sessions but are effectively taster/tester sessions for what LFA will become.
Sessions are open to skiers and boarders aged 8-21, who can confidently link turns, control their speed, use the lift facilities without assistance and competent navigating the slope unsupervised. If you are not at the standard required, you will be asked to leave the session without a refund. Helmets and back protectors are mandatory for LFA sessions.
