My 13th birthday has been the best so far

I have never been snowboarding before, both my parents used to but I ride a ripstick so I turned out to be quite good at it. This was easily one of my best birthdays ever. The... read more

We booked to go on the doughnuts with 5 kids between 4-12 years old and 6 adults. Naturally assumed we would be going down the slopes but was really disappointed to find a very small area for this activity, tiny in fact! Would say this is suitable for ages 4-10. Not an adult attraction at all.

Booked the half hour ringo slide for 6 adults and 5 children. On arrival the slopes look amazing and are covered in real snow. It actually feels like you're at a real ski resort. The slopes were big and we thought it would be amazing but then we saw the area for the ringos and couldn't believe it. Your turn... More

The community is amazingly friendly and the staff get on with rather other, and are young so they occasionally ride with you on the slope... More

Went to The Snow Centre yesterday for a midweek skills development session. Had a great time and excellent coaching from Rob Needham and Keith Chapman. The session is in a fun informal format with games and general mischief. There is also time for you to request tuition on things specific to you.

I feel I should keep quiet and leave this place as secret ... that's how good it is. Posted photos on Facebook and got asked by many people about it, so many don't know about the snow centre ! It's a great day out and we will be followed up by many more lessons for our 4 year old! Thank... More

First time trying out snowboarding but i fell in love instantly. Went with my gf for our first lesson and ended up with Dale as our instructor. He has a lot of experience but most importantly he was fun to be around with and to learn from. By the end of the 2 hour session we both had fun and... More

I took my bf for a level 1 snowboarding lesson which turned out to be the best idea I could of come up with! It was always something on our list to try and was something my bf turned out to really enjoy and be good at getting to grips with the techniques we were taught. Our amazing instructor was... More

Last week we visited the Snow Centre for our second round of snowboarding lessons. Level 2 and Level 3. Myself and my friend who attended could not have had a bigger smile on our faces when we left after 2 hours coaching with Alison. Her knowledge and help got us both linking turns and moving down the hill confidently. Anyone... More

I learnt how to snowboard here and had a great experience. Keith is a fantastic instructor, very patient and makes time for each student in the class. The equipment is good, they've just replaced the helmets so they are much better than they used to be. The boots are good but sometimes a bit soggy from the last user or... More

Had a great time learning to ski (and relearning the basics) at the Snow Centre. Thanks to our instructor Kate Rainbow! We suggest linking up with a local taxi firm to help late visitors get back to the station/hotel after evening visits.
