Visited here with friends for a wedding reception. Staff were very friendly and the bar prices aren't too expensive. Food was provided by an outside caterer so can't really comment on the food that the Ski Centre provide.

Loved it! My daughter age 10 went on the toboggan and I booked her in for half of a hour and she was fed up after 20 minutes walking up the steep hill. Snow tubing, my daughter loved it it's so fun! You have just got to be careful because my daughter had her ticket and only got two goes... More

The place looks very much in need of a refurb. Unfortunately, the toboggan wasn't working on the day we visited. The skiing part of it was very good and the instructor was brilliant. Would recommend going and would recommend for families. Good value for money.

Brought a wowcher offer for the kids and will definitely be back. They did tobogganing and snotubing and had a wonderful time. A couple of negatives, if you child doesn't zoom down the toboggan they end up getting hit from behind. This also means that the faster riders enjoyment is also spoilt. Secondly the place does look a little run... More

We had 5 gos on the toboggan run, which was fine. It's all a bit tired and dated. I'm glad I didn't book anything else as the ski slope has seem better days - moss on the slope and long grass. The staff were friendly.The alpine ski lodge (cafe) was more like a bar in a working mans club than... More

My 13 year old daughter just went on a "stay, play, ski" day. We booked in last minute nad they were able to accomodate us. 1 hr ski lesson (just two to one ratio the day we went!), tobogganing, viper slide and sno-tubing as much as she could manage, and a hot lunch - all for £20. It's such fabulous... More
