My group lesson refresher has got my confidence back!

Having not boarded in a couple of years, learning to ski inbetween, and an aversion to tow lifts, I thought I'd get in a lesson before my upcoming trip with more confident boarders. Also to minimise any tantrums on the slope. Id booked a level 4 ladies morning lesson using a 20% off code and turns out I was the... More

The snow quality was excellent, especially at the beginning of the session (7:00am) before it got a bit carved up. Staff were friendly and helpful and the free coffee at the bottom of the slope is a nice touch.

This was my first time at the ski center and it was a 'good' experience. The center was easy to find and looked great. It was busy even at 5.30 on a Sunday and a little unorganised but the staff were helpful when asked what I should be doing. The equipment I hired was of good quality and the instructor... More

Ive just come back from a main slope ready lesson with Sarah Mills. She has helped me regain my confidence and i have left being able to ski. The centre has great facilities for all levels and the staff were very helpful. Thank you Sarah.

Great experience, thoroughly enjoyed my first Ski lesson! Friendly instructor. I went on a Thursday evening during half term/ it was very busy but didn't affect our group lesson luckily! The only downside I would say is the price of the lessons- on the pricey side!Also the availability seems very limited and booked up. Looking forward to my next lesson!

Asking people to arrive at least 30 mins before their booking is fine if there is not a 20 person queue for skis and only 2 relaxed people slowly muddling through. There was a lack of helmets, mess everywhere, and when you do miss the start of your ski lesson, don't expect your teacher to really notice your absence. I... More

Sarah has been fantastic at teaching our boys (8 and 5) to ski in a private lesson. From having never put skis on to coming down the main slope from the top in 6 x 1 hour lessons. She has kept them interested, learning and wanting to come back for more week after week. The only downside is the rather... More

We've been taking our son (3 y/o) for ski lessons for a few months now. He got on brilliantly with his instructor (Colin) in his first lesson so obviously when we booked again we asked for the same instructor. We've done that every time since. The problem is the booking procedure is so stupid it usually takes a week to... More

First ski lesson and it was awesome! Steve our instructor was great, knowledgable,really clear, stuck to the basics for each individual and I feel like I've learnt a lot in a short space of time. A class of 8 was a surprisingly good size ie not too large. I think any more would be too many. Thanks Steve I'm now... More

Came here just for a bit of lunch on a recommendation and was very impressed with the set up here. The slopes looked great with loads of instructors about. The food was great had a platter to share and two latte`s very good service Friendly and quite fast service too especially considering it was quite busy. Plenty of large windows... More
