The word from the slopes

  • “Love it here. Great slope and the staff are really friendly. Also love the Alpine bar and viewing area. So pleased to have it back.”

  • “My family's first visit. It was a great day out, enjoyed a coffee and some cake before the lesson. Then enjoyed a lesson with a very calm and reassuring instructor. Would recommend a visit, it was good fun.”

  • “Our first visit to try out new boots before our holiday. A great way to get your "ski legs" back. Snow excellent, staff extremely helpful, facilities spotless and a nice coffee to end the session.”

  • “Overall my experience at the snow centre was INCREDIBLE. Everyone was so welcome and supportive as well it was easy to understand the prep before hand. As a beginner ive never got the hang of the basics so quickly, so a massive thank you to all instructors.”
