One single tip you would give to anyone taking part in Snowsports… Skiing and snowboarding is an extreme sport so Learn properly through a UK or International Snow School! 

Best Snowsports memory? My best Snowsports experience would be around midday snowboarding in Ruka, Finland. At 2pm the sun starts to fall below the horizon and you get this lovely red glow across the mountain as you're snowboarding down! I would highly recommend this resort to a skier or snowboarder of any level! 

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.”
