I was taught to ski from scratch by the instructors here. They also tried to teach me to snowboard but I couldn't get the happy medium between relaxing and falling over! At least I tried, not something that many 50+ grans can say LOL.
The instructors are very good at instilling confidence and make sure that they push harder when they think you are ready. If you take a tumble they are reassuring and make sure that you get back on the slope straight away. They are all lovely people with a great sense of humour.
Once you have reached a basic level of confidence you are allowed on the slope without an instructor. Each time you go to the slope without an instructor you sign a declaration to say that you have reached a competent level, and they specify what they consider that level to be. So the reviewer who is complaining about being chastised for taking a novice on the slope deserves it as his companion obviously lied about their ability level. These precautions are taken for the safety of all skiers and snowboarders using the slope as it is dangerous for novice skiers to be careering down the slope out of control and expecting everyone else to get out of their way because they don't know what they're doing.
I don't consider the price to be too expensive bearing in mind that it includes boot and ski hire, lift pass and unlimited time on the slope - I've never been told that my time is up, I just come in when I'm too tired to ski any more. If you go to the coffee morning session held once a week it's only a few more pounds and you get a ski instructor and a hot drink thrown in.
The toboggan run is great fun. When you get to the top wait a little if you can so that you are not too close to the person in front, particularly if that person is a small child and may not be going too fast.
The crazy golf is also great fun if there is a crowd of you and you make a competition of it.
The bar and cafe is a good place to relax apres ski and watch others on the slope. If the weather is fine you can sit outside on the balcony. Also a good place to relax even if you haven't partaken of any of the activities on offer.
