I decided to go to the Snow Centre before going on my first ski holiday. I also went to Skiplex in Reading beforehand a couple of times (Skiplex is like a running machine for skiing, so the slope moves while you ski on it). While both were useful experiences for me as a total beginner, having a go on real... More

Due to the short time before we left for our ski trip, I arranged a private ski lesson for my two boys (5 and 10). Booking was straight forward and they were very amenable with the available time slots at short notice. Upon arrival, the check in desk was very informative and helpful and although this must be their busiest... More

I recently attended the 3 hour beginner accelerator lesson on a Saturday with Alison. Overall this was a good experience and I learnt a lot having never skied before. I could have learn even more though, and this was due to how busy the beginner slope was. It was extremely crowded with other lessons and there seemed to be no... More

I did my level-2 snowboarding lesson with Allison on 05/Feb. I have tried level-2 in a different place but it didn't go well. But within the 2 hours Allison helped me master level-2. She focuses not just on gaining skills but also on building confidence. She pays close attention every single time you are on the slope and provides feedback.... More

Visited here at the weekend to give my daughters (14 and 12) beginner lessons. Booked online (very good, user friendly website) back in November. Totally impressed with every aspect. Easy check in, efficient collection of equipment, timely operation, friendly and professional instructor......the actual lesson was very good. Effective, age appropriate, fast enough to progress - these guys know their stuff.... More

Arrived early and had a coffee whilst watching the skiers and snowboarders in action! There were only two of us in the lesson so managed to complete level 1 & 2. Enjoyed every minute. Will definitely be back.

I went to an adult 3 hour lesson on Saturday and Allison was my instructor. Having never skied before I was really nervous and so were some of the other people in the group. We started off well but then moved over to the nursery slope where it was really busy and the instructors were fighting for spaces on the... More

Fantastic lesson, used every second to Zac's advantage and gave us really good advice for our forthcoming ski trip. This has been Zac's best lesson so far, so much so that he progressed through a whole level. Thanks to Lee's patience and teaching, Zac thoroughly enjoyed his lesson and we love the snow centre for providing such good instructors.

I regularly attend one of the skills development lessons and every time I go, I am always so impressed that the instructors can find something to add to my skill development. Simon Longstaff and Penny Chapman have helped me so much, a big thank you! The snow is really good with a choice of harder snow and softer snow to... More
