Great for snowboarding, can get very busy, food in the bar is terrible, like a fast food resturant but worse, beer is expensive

Some people do golf I do ski. Between May and November this is a place I can get my snow fix. Its a bit of a spin for me but its still worth it. Its not perfect, you wont get a panda tan as you would on the glacier at Tignes, but you can work on your style. I find... More

Visited recently for a snowboard lesson. I have to say, this place is fantastic. Our instructor was extremely patient and was really supportive. I will definitely be going back for further lessons.

The slope has different nights such as freestyle night, is maintained well and the teaching has been generally excellent for my snowboarding journey!

My partner got me a skiing lesson for my birthday, and having been for a skiing lesson previously and reaching level 3 I thought I could pick up where I left off... I was wrong (the previous lesson was 2 years ago). After a very embarrassing initial 5 minutes where I could barely stay upright the instructor moved me to... More

A great place to learn how to ski an snowboard. Just a few niggles to sort out. to make perfect. Hand dryers not working, loose taps etc in the gents. some attention to detail needed.Food and the bar could be so much better. I would still recommend a visit..
