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.”
