Q. Can I stay on the slope after my lesson?
A. If you have reached our minimum standard you will be able to purchase a lift pass after your lesson to continue your time on the Main Slope. However if you aren’t at the level you would need to book another lesson. Our minimum standard means that you can control speed and direction, link turns, stop when required and use the poma lift; this is what you will achieve after passing main slope ready level.
