Reviewed October 13, 2012

Good tuition given by experts and great to learn how to learn putting on boots, skis and getting on drag lifts. All the preliminary things you need to get you started on the snow, infact a weeks tuition could help you immensely to get a good week on the snow in your resort.

“Great Fun”
Reviewed June 7, 2012

I visited this place before I went skiing in Austria and it was a great help. Even after I went skiing, I have returned here numourous times just for the fun of it. Staff are friendly, facilities are good and it is a generally nice place to visit.

“Dry ski-slope Southampton”
Reviewed April 26, 2012

Firstly it is useful to have a dryski-slope near to your home and I have used this quite a few times before ski-ing just to get back some technique and confidence (not the best skier in the world!). There are 2 1/2 slopes. The steepest equivalent to a fairly easy red run. The slopes are situated in Southampton sports centre on the far side so to avoid the walk it is much quicker to park at their own road entrance. They will give you directions. Prices are OK, if you book a private lesson although more expensive they are very good. Be warned that there are only 2 x button lifts which can get very busy. It is worth checking if there are any larger school or childrens parties occurring as it cna mean the slopes will be very busy and lots of waiting! Early evening is a good time to go. I have always found it quieter. Boots are of reasonable qualifty as are skis and staff very helpful. There is a toilet, coffee, water and sweets machine otherwise nothing.

“Good little slope.”
Reviewed April 5, 2012

Friendly staff and well-maintained slope. Only problem is that it's a bit on the short side, and there's no sprinkler system - hence the 4* not 5.
