Have skied here twice. Once was part of a course that had the centre fees included. This time we paid the fees and were unhappily surprised at the cost. 2 hours which seems to be the minimum period was £48. Obviously people can afford this as it was packed. The place is ok for beginners or a quick refresher session,... More

Hi MatthewA386 Thank you for posting your review of The Snow Centre. We are now in the peak season and just like an Alpine resort the slopes will be busy. During the summer months we offer a monthly pass for £69 ( 2016 price) for unlimited use with I think you will agree is great value. It is very likely... More

Great facilities for an inside ski slope, but a bit difficult to get to with public transport and not much else to do in the area. Glasgow has an indoor ski slope near an ice rink, shopping center and climbing park with soft play etc.. if you only want skiing and only compare to other indoor skiing places, it is... More

Hi hkeiler Thank you for posting your review of The Snow Centre. Glad to read you had a positive visit to our facility. We are more of a dedicated snowsports environment rather than shopping venue although we do have Snow and Rock downstairs and a great Alpine themed restaurant. I hope we see you again at The Snow Centre soon.... More

The facilities were good, but my one on one lesson was disappointing. No feedback given and no advice on how to progress

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to all of the instructors at the Snow Centre for their expert tuition and patience with helping me to pass my Level 5 Snowboarding lesson and gain confidence on the main slope. As a complete beginner (and someone without much in the way of co-ordination and balance!) it hasn't been an... More

Being ever so slightly long in the tooth (51), I decided that there's no better time to learn to snowboard before an upcoming skiing trip to France in Feb. I have to say that I had previously tried boarding in courchevel but without instruction, opting for the "I can do that,it looks easy approach ". After 3 hours spent on... More

Great indoor slope for a few hours. I went to refresh my skills boarding before heading abroad on holiday. I was pleasantly surprised by the centre. Very easy to get started and a nice slope with button lifts. Worth going for a play around!

Russell and Eliza had a private one hour lesson with Caleb Fields, a refresher after a year since learning last year. Caleb was perfect, building confidence in two rusty snowboarders. Eliza is only 9 but Caleb struck a prefect note with her, just right. I would recommend him to anyone at any level!!

Went for a beginner's 2hr snow boarding lesson as a Christmas present and had a great time. The instructor was really great with my mum who found the physical side of things difficult and he worked with her slowly and encouraged her whilst also keeping on top of the rest of the class. We rented water-proof clothes which I would... More
