All About Us

Skiers and snowboarders of all abilities are welcome. We’ve created a wide range of lessons and passes, making sure there’s something for everyone.

Whether you’re a seasoned pro looking for a new freestyle park each week, just beginning your Snowsports journey or simply want to have a whizz down the slopes on our Sledges, you’ll find it at The Snow Centre.

After your session on the slope be sure to visit our Schuss Bar on the slope, enjoy FREE tea & coffee during your session. Available Monday - Friday 10.30am - 3.30pm and Saturday - Sunday 10am - 6.30pm.

Off the slope we have a NEW alpine themed restaurant - The Lodge Bar & Kitchen which offers panoramic views over the slope and an all new menu combined with traditional favourites and delicious alpine dishes too. It’s also a great place to come and enjoy live Sky Sports on one of our many big-screen TVs, and you don’t have to go on the slope to enjoy our Cafebar.

If this sounds like the kind of place you'd like to work, find out how to Join Our Team.

SNOWSPORTS SCHOOL

 

Our Snowsports School is unlike any other training facility in this country. Once only found in specialist centres in the Alps, the most effective instruction and coaching philosophies are now available right here in the UK. We are very proud that our ski and snowboard courses have seen us recognised as a Centre of Excellence by BASI (British Association of Snowsport Instructors). This means our instructors are trained to the highest level and are always one step ahead with the techniques in which we teach our guests.

Whether you’re a complete novice, a seasoned expert or anything in between, the ski and snowbaord courses running at our Snowsports School offer a wide and inclusive range of courses designed for you. We also provide elite competition level instruction and instructor education. All taught by our seasoned, experienced professionals.

Pete ‘Silver’ Gillespie, who heads up the Snowsports School has been a professional Snowsports instructor and  ski courses coach for more than 22 years. He says, ‘All our instructors are continually assessed and appraised to ensure we maintain the highest possible standards. Our lessons range from beginner classes for adults and children as young as four right up to courses for new instructors, private lessons and even video assessment.’

OUR EQUIPMENT

 

We offer top of the range ski and snowboard equipment from leading Snowsports brand HEAD - available to you at no extra cost. Several Gold medallists in the last winter Olympics used HEAD ski equipment, plus our partnership with HEAD means we’re giving you access to some of the newest equipment on the market.

The hire of our ski and snowboard equipment, including Skis, Snowboards, Boots, Poles and Helmets, is included within the price of your Lesson or Lift Pass.

For your own safety, a helmet is compulsory for all participants of lessons, freestyle activities, sledging and racing. Plus, all juniors (16 years and under) are required to wear a helmet.

Equipment

Ski/snowboard boots, skis and poles, snowboards, ringos and helmets are included in price of your lesson or lift pass. You'll be able to collect these from our rental area after you have checked in.   It would be great if you could come prepared with your height, weight and shoe size details for your activity so our rental technicians can set up your equipment correctly. Bringing juniors along with you? Please make sure you know their details too.

Clothing

You will need to wear warm, waterproof clothing. Warm waterproof jackets and trousers can be hired at a cost of £6.75 – please book on-line, or ask at the Check-In desk on arrival.

Gloves & Socks

The wearing of gloves is an essential requirement for any snow activity and it is also advisable to wear long socks. Gloves (£9) and socks (£4) can be purchased on-line for collection at the time of your snow activity, or at the Check-In desk on arrival.

Helmets

You will be required to wear a helmet during your lesson. Again, this is included in the price of your lesson pass. Helmets can be found on the helmet rack by the door to the slope entrace.
