We come here as a family very often and have been satisfied sometimes. However recently we have been very disappointed. We have over a hours drive from where we live so when we come it becomes a destination. We checked the website to make sure there is no camp or slope closers as we understand that there will be events... More

Me and my girlfriend went for a stage 1 snowboarding lesson. It lasted for 1.5 hours. It was amazing. The instructor was very good and took his time with each individual. His name is Keith. He explained everything very well. You learn how to heel edge and toe edge side slip with control. You also learn about safety and some... More

Myself and my partner were booked in here for a 8 hours pass this cost us £78. I think there could be some be grudging towards this as you could buy a 2 hour pass and no one would know the difference as they don't check. This place is well maintained and consist of 3 floors. Car park is ample... More

This is an excellent indoor ski experience, on real snow. Ideal for kids and beginners, and reasonably priced at approx £10 per hour including skis and boots. Clothing can be hired for a few ££. Upstairs is a viewing area/ cafe with good quality F&B. Overall a great experience

The snow centre is a great place to practice your ski skills. The slopes are large enough but become rough later in the day. I would regiment visiting during a week day as it can become to busy at night and weekends.

Absolutely love this place! The staff are great and the snow is perfect, I usually spend at least 3 days a week snowboarding here and with the monthly pass it's amazing value! Everybody treats you so well wether you're just hitting the slope or on a lesson, you even get free tea and coffee during the morning sessions! It almost... More

I have had two snowboarding lessons at the Snow Centre and I have found the instructors to be helpful and considerate. They made the lessons fun and interesting and really helped progress my skills. I will be returning to have more lessons in the very near future. Perhaps last night was a one off, but they appear to be very... More

The slope and facilities are well looked after and sufficient even during the busy weekend peak hours (which was very busy!) I spent a couple of hours dusting off the cobwebs while my wife learnt to board in a day. Her instructor was very good and spread her time across the group so everyone got some one on one time....
