We provide expert Ski and Snowboard Lessons for Adults (17+ years) and juniors (4 -16 years) to help you feel confident and comfortable on our slopes.

We will then teach you how to develop your newly found skills and help you refine and perfect your technique.

Junior Skiing Lessons for 4 year olds have a maximum of 5 people,  6 people for ages 5 - 6, 8 people for ages 7 - 10 and 10 people for ages 11 - 16. Junior Group Snowboarding Lessons for ages 7 - 10 hold a maximum of 4 people and 6 for ages 11 – 16, except Levels 5 & above which have a maximum of 8. Our maximum group numbers are in place to ensure everyone gets the help and guidance they need.

If you have already achieved our Main Slope Ready Level  and you're set to hit the slopes, there are a number of Lift Passes and sessions created to suit you. Take a look at our Range of  Lift Passes  or our Level 5 and above Lessons. Please note for safety reasons you may not use our Main Slope on a Lift Pass unless you have already had experience in Snowsports AND have passed our Main Slope Ready Level Lesson OR are able to make controlled turns on the Main Slope, stop and control your speed when required and use the button lift unassisted.

The word from the slopes

  • “Having never been skiing before, I booked in for the full-day introductory course. The instructor Richard was extremely patient and allowed me to get to grips with the basics at my own pace. The Snow Centre is a very impressive facility, with the learning slope separate from the main slope so you don't feel under pressure if you are a beginner. Overall I really enjoyed it and would definitely go back.”

  • “Had a 2 hour adult woman’s group with Alan who is amazing, very patient And explains things in such a simple way you can progress with ease he paid attention to everyone in the class which was lovely ...!!”

  • “Thank you Julie for your kind hearted gesture this morning of buying a coffee for all NHS workers - it was definitely what I needed ready to face a busy shift! The coffee was lovely - as were you, and I will definitely pop in more often, as it is such a convenient place for a quick pick me up! Thank you!!”

  • “Huge thanks to Craig,or Carl, sorry can't remember which who was amazing loading sit skis yesterday. Also Beeman with his ever helpful how are you, can I help greetings. Snow really good as well.”
