Small, simple beginners' area!
Talma's beginners' area is located at the base of the ski area. Its two lifts, 8 and 9 (platter lift), are perfect for beginning skiers and boarders of all ages. If you don't yet feel very comfortable with lifts, you can practice on number 8 until you feel brave enough to try the platter lift, and you won't have to leave the beginners' area once. Once you're sturdy enough on your skis, you can give trail no. 2 a shot, which ends in the same valley as trail number 1. The lifts all over the ski area are all very boardable. You can grab the vertical cables on the platter lift from a standing position when it swings around, which makes boarding extremely simple and very safe. Just make sure not to try trails 4 or 5 until you have had some more practice on your skis.
