Brilliant afternoon. Staff were great with kids. Due to high demand on doughnuts the kids got extra time on delay. They had great fun and are still talking about it days later. I skied myself and although busy and queues on pony bar it moved...More

1 hour of ringos or ski bobs and then half an hour for our food, although we were not rushed out. We found that this was plenty of time.
