It's my partners 30th birthday in Feb and I wanted to surprise him with a snowboarding trip, only I can't snowboard. So I decided to book some lessons in on my own. It was a little scary as I was completely out of my comfort zone but everyone was really helpful. So far I've had 2 lessons and already at... More

Hire out gear is not an issue, the staff will get you fitted properly in your ski's. The slopes are great and well maintained. The ski shop downstairs has lots of gear and even... More

Had a 2 hour Level 2 lesson with Katie Rainbow after a 20 year gap since I last skiied. Friendly and clear instruction and a pat on the back when things were going well. We were able to progress quickly and towards the end doing snowplough turns from the top of the slope which was a massive confidence booster. Great... More

I started learning to snowboard last winter in France but wanted a couple of refresher lessons before I went away again in January. I booked in for a level 5 class and my teacher Alli was fantastic, she started at the basics and made everyone in the group feel comfortable and helped them get back in the swing of things... More

+All the staff were polite, helpful and you got the impression they actually cared and would give out little pieces of advice or checking you were OK that went above what you would expect. +Button lift was one of the best I've used being a boarder +Main slope had a large jump that you could go over that's good for...

I am from Brazil, and as you probably know, skiing is not something we can easily do in South America. The first time I saw massive snow in my life was this year, in February. My husband and I decided to learn snow sports, so we started having lessons at the Snow Centre. I had 7 lessons in total, from... More

I have been going to The Snow Centre for a while now, recently on a Tuesday night development lesson. After 4 weeks I have progressed so much and thought I would give these guys a mention. Great instructors, loads of fun, with attention to detail in both technical and freestyle - I am yet to progress into freestyle ;) I... More
