Great experience for adults / kids that have not spent any time in actual snow fields. Staff where friendly and helpful. If you want to get plenty of downhill slides in then walk back up as the escalator takes much longer and you will need to wait in line. No staff seem to be checking if people are avoiding the...

Yes it is expensive as a traveller if you don't have the gear and as a family it was pricey but we would do it again, and again, and again. At the end of the day it still works out cheaper than going to the snow. 4 hours was not long enough. We are a family of 2 adults, an... More

Excellent ski lesson from Mitchell. Bit of a wait for the lifts but a really good experience overall. Don't forget to wrap up warm. Gloves and clothing available to hire.

They have a very nice facility with a great snack bar area, good instructors (surprisingly!) and friendly staff. You just have to bear in mind that you are skiing in the summer and live with the basically one green run.

We often visit here with grandchildren as such fun watching drivers, snow boarders etc hurtling towards you & coming down huge artificial mountain of snow. However, we were very disappointed with the food in cafe/restaurant there this last time. Tables weren't wiped & cleaned properly between customers, even when asked repeatedly. Food was very expensive and lacking in taste &... More

I spent a lot of time practicing snowboard here. Course is quite short but plenty if you're practicing for the mountains. Great for day trip.
