Learn how to Ski

"When it comes to skiing, there’s a difference between what you think it’s going to be like, what it’s really like, and what you tell your friends it was like."  ~Author Unknown

Snow Factor is the perfect place to learn how to ski . Our guaranteed snow conditions mean you can learn anytime, day or night!

Our team of qualified ski instructors will welcome you to the slope and guide you through every step of learning snow sports from fitting your boots correctly and finding your balance all the way through to your first smooth turns on the main slope.

Our lessons are tailored to ensure you get the most out of you time spent with us and have you mountain ready in no time
