Renamed from XScape a couple of years ago but still the same exciting package for school parties. Kids (S3 aged 14) were greeted, kitted and briefed in 20 minutes. They really enjoyed their lessons with Malcolm and Rab (?). They progressed really well and by the end of the two consecutive evening sessions most were hurling themselves off the very top of the slope with abandon and lack of fear! Well done the instructors! School parties get a good discount and for what we paid was really good value for money.

My husband and I had our skills 2 lesson yesterday with Malcolm who was patient and friendly. We are learning to ski in our 50's and it had been a month since our first lesson, so we were a bit rusty. But Malcolm did not seem to be frustrated in any way. We had booked a group lesson but it was just the 2 of us so felt we got more or less one to one tuition. It is great fun and have booked for our 3rd lesson.

We really enjoyed a full day’s skiing lesson with Dyllan - he was clear, thorough and made sure that everyone was supported at their level as we progressed at different paces. We would highly recommend him and we will be back!

I recently booked a snowboarding taster session for my 7 year old, she was very excited. And the instructor was amazing she wouldn’t stop going on about her.
She was very attentive, and thorough with the session.
I will book again for further lessons.
Can’t fault the experience.
