You can enjoy the fun on the Main Slope with guidance from an Instructor on a level 5, 6 or performance Lesson or book a Lift Pass and simply cruise the slope with your friends.

WHAT TO EXPECT
Whether your hitting our slopes on a Lift Pass or a Lesson, on skis or on a snowboard, our steps to the snow will guide you on your way!
After you book your Lesson or Lift Pass we will send you an email with your Booking Reference. Please bring your booking reference with you and arrive at The Snow Centre Check-in-desk 30 minutes before your session is due to start, to have enough time check in, collect your equipment and get changed. If you remember your Booking Reference you can beat any queues and use our Fast Track Machines to print off your tickets.
The temperature on the slope will range from -2°c to -6°c so we recommend thick warm socks and layered clothing. You will need gloves for all slope activities and we don’t recommend jeans, as they usually end up pretty waterlogged, but any waterproof clothing would be ideal.
Don’t worry if you don’t own any Snowsports clothing as you can hire warm and waterproof outerwear from The Snow Centre Check-in-desk for just £7 per person and collect it from our clothing hire stand after you check in. Gloves and socks are available to purchase. Gloves are £9.50 and Socks are £4.
Once you've picked up any rental clothing from the clothing hire desk, get your ski and snowboard clothing on in our changing rooms, located next to the clothing hire stand.
Lockers are also available! Placed alongside the changing rooms on the 1st floor, they are Free, but take a £1 that is returned after your session.
Whether you're skiing or snowboarding make sure you know your height, weight and shoe size so we can set you up with skis, snowboards and boots at our equipment rental desk. If you are bringing a junior along make sure you do know their details too.
We’ve partnered with HEAD to provide you with all the Snowsports equipment you’ll need on the slope. Your Lesson or Lift Pass includes the hire of your skis, snowboard, boots, poles and helmet. So, no need to worry about extra costs.
If you’re participating in a high adventure sport, it makes sense to wear a helmet. We want to promote safety awareness amongst Snowsports enthusiasts, so helmet hire is included within the price of your session.
While we encourage everyone to protect their heads by wearing a helmet, it is compulsory for all children aged 16 years and under whilst undertaking any snow activity, everyone participating in Skiing and Snowboarding lessons from Level 1 to performance, everyone participating in freestyle activities, race training or any form of competition and everyone participating in a Sledging session or Birthday Party.
You can grab your helmet from the racks next to the entrance to the slopes!
