I had my skill level 3 ski lesson yesterday 22nd Jan and my instructor was Kristina. She was amazing, very patient and encouraging when I needed it. Although I was in a group session she took the time to ensure I felt safe and comfortable

Learn together from ages 13yrs +

Group Lessons

If you are new to snowsports but want to learn we have a number of options available for you and your family.

For little ones (under 13yrs) we have a great program to take them from beginner to recreational level through our Junior Lessons.

If your little ones are not so little anymore (ages 13yrs +) they can join you on our Teen/Adult lessons and can be a great way for the family to learn together if the kids are that bit older.

They can also join you on a Snowsports Taster which will let you try bot skiing and snowboarding in one session.
