From hitting our incredible 180 metre long, real snow slope to learn new skills or to hone your technique, to dining with friends and family or enjoying a spot of shopping on our Alpine Street, there’s bound to be something to keep you coming back for more.
If you love playing in the snow as much as us then we know you’ll really enjoy a Ski or Snowboard Taster Lesson, which is the perfect starting point to get a feel for the slope. You’ll be in safe hands with one of our friendly, fully qualified instructors, who will help you find your snow legs before you move on to lessons and of course, the main slope.
A Beginner Lesson or Course is perfect for building a solid foundation of fundamental skills. Once you’ve conquered the basics you’ll be raring to progress to the main slope with an Improver Lesson.
If you still feel you need a little more practice we offer a Guided Practice Session, ideal for boosting confidence after a little time away.
To get to grips with the main slope jump on to an Improver Lesson. You will 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!
If you want to maximise your time on the snow we can tailor a one-to-one Private Lesson – ski or snowboard - to your specific needs with one of our dedicated instructors.
For snow enthusiasts already equipped with the skills, our main slope Lift Pass will give you the freedom to enjoy the slope and perfect your technique.
For snowboarders our Rider Development sessions have been designed to build confidence and make you more comfortable when you ride. And for skiers still ploughing when the going gets tough Parallel Development focuses on ironing out the plough and developing your skiing technique.
If you have the desire to ski faster, harder and carve up the hill then Carving Development is ideal.
