New to the Slopes
If you have never snowboarded before, or the last time you did was before the iPod was invented!.... you will find the perfect lesson fit on our New to the slopes pages.
Our Fun Tasters are a perfect starting point for getting a feel for the snow and also ideal if you can't decide which discipline is for you!
If you catch the snow bug or want to jump straight in to your lessons, we have a great variety of beginner courses that are designed to fit around you and your schedule, so you can learn to ski at a time that suits you.
If you've completed your Beginner Lessons but still feel you need a little more practice, we offer a fantastic Guided Practice Session where you can really build up your confidence. One of our friendly, fully qualified instructors will guide you on the beginner slope and help you progress confidently to the main slope.
Finally, if you are still unsure which lesson is for you, then why not join us on a What Level Am I? session and let us advise you on your next step. (Some Snowboarding experience is essential for this session and if you decide to book your next lesson on the same day.... we will give you the value of your What Level Am I? session off your booking!).
All our 'new to the slopes ' snowboard sessions are for guests 8yrs and older and guests under 10yrs need to be accompanied by a paying adult*. Why not join our Kids Snow School instead! (See below)
*Excludes beginner day lessons where the minimum age is 10yrs
Improve your skills
The main slope at Chill Factore is a challenging 15 degrees, which is equivalent to a difficult blue run or an easy red run in the Alps. To snowboard on the main slope all users must meet the 'Minimum Main Slope Standard’, meaning you must be able to control your speed and direction, link your turns, stop and use the button lift unassisted. If you still feel you need a little more practice, we offer a fantastic Guided Practice Session where you can really build up your confidence and progress confidently to the main slope.
If you need more help with this, the good news is our Improver Snowboard Lessons are specifically designed with this in mind. Improver Lessons build on the basic techniques and develop your confidence enabling you to make the most of the exciting main slope terrain. We will have you on your way in no time!
Our Development Snowboard lessons have been designed to build confidence and make you more comfortable when you ride. These sessions are just the ticket if you want to ride faster, harder and start carving up the slope.

Believe us, by the time you reach the end of the development course we will be looking out for you at Sochi!
