Today I had a 1-1 ski lesson with Neil Presence. Without doubt the best ski lesson I've had. I can't recommend him highly enough, encouraging me (the most nervous and previously injured skier) to the point of actually enjoying skiing down again!

I took part in a level 4 group ski lesson Wednesday evening and I would highly recommend Max as an instructor. He was very professional and had a genuine interest as to why we was there. Everyone made great progression throughout the class.

Yeah you can enjoy the view from our Alpine restaurant but we don't have an activity for 10 month old child. It is a fun place to be. Pete
