Lessons FAQs

Q. What do we need to bring?

A.

Bring your reference number with you to speed up your check-in, or beat the queues by using our fast-track check-in machines. If you've had a lesson before, please bring along your achievement card that you would have received after your previous lesson. We also recommend you wear warm waterproof clothing and thick socks. Plus, gloves are compulsory for all snow activities. Clothing can be hired for £8 for one item, or £14 for two items, gloves can be purchased for £10 and socks for £5.

Q. How many people will be in my lesson?

Our Group Lesson sizes are different depending on the age group of the lesson, and the discipline.

 

  • 4 years - Maximum of 5 (skiing only)
  • 5 - 6 years - Maximum of 6 (skiing only)
  • 7 - 10 years - Maximum of 8 for skiing & 4 for snowboarding

Q. Can I stay on the slope after my lesson?

A.

If you've passed Level 5, congratulations! You can buy a lift pass after your lesson to continue your time on the Main Slope! If you aren’t at the level you would need to continue your learning journey before you can ski or snowboard independently.

Check Availability

The word from the slopes

  • “Easy access from M1. Plenty of parking, simple registration, and quick service to collect skis, boots etc. Both lifts serving the main slopes worked faultlessly and although the session was quite busy I felt the slopes were quite free of other skiers & classes. I particularly liked the snow conditions and at the end enjoyed the amazing cafè overlooking the slopes. Reasonably priced menu. All told an excellent start to our skiing this year.”

  • “Very friendly staff. Good, clean facilities and very good prices on lessons & lift passes.”

  • “Very helpful staff would recommend to anyone trying to learn snow sports very down to earth people.”

  • “Great place, nothing negative to add. You can rent all of the equipment down to socks. Any kind of lessons available. Parking, gear store, cafe on site”

  • “Great lessons with experienced instructors who put kids and parents at their ease. The lessons were full as it was half term, but each child still didn’t have to wait too long between turns on the slope. It was easy to get and return equipment and the food in the restaurant was great and came promptly.”
