My friend and I had a private snowboarding lesson (1 hour) and neither of us had done it before. By the end of the lesson we were both able to put the snowboard on and off, go forwards, backwards, straight, get up unaided and have a basic understanding of how are weight distribution over the board affected it.

Booked through groupon four people for £27. A fun hour and good exercise. A good family afternoon. Car park not sign posted and down a dirt track. Staff polite and efficient. My son forgot his long sleeved top and they provided one

its such a shame that this centre has become so rundown. It is in a lovely location, great for a picnic. The staff were very friendly at the ski centre, my son forgot to bring gloves, they kindly let him borrow a pair, you must wear long sleeves, the dry slope can give you nasty cuts if you fall, so...

Spent a fantastic hour doing ringos / doighnuting with our 11 and 8 year olds. What a lot of fun. The centre provide helmets for under 16s and have a (limited) supply of gloves. (You are not allowed on without gloves whatever your age) Lockers are available to hire for a £1 deposit with the key on a handy lanyard... More

Great place, highly recommend, but the unlit, potholed dirt track to the car park is a death trap. Please, please get this sorted

The staff are helpful and the price is more than reasonable especially at £32 for unlimited recreational practice for 30 days. I will also be having a snowboard taster for £10 which is great value for finding out if you want to give it a go or not. The car park is a bit of a pain to get too... More

My 11 yr old daughter recently celebrated her birthday with a donutting session at the centre and she and her group of 9 friends certainly had a great time. The session was on schedule and safely managed by the friendly staff. However, the car park is a VERY long walk, especially when carrying heavy food bags (we'd opted for self-catering)... More

We brought a package guaranteed to ski, it was very reasonable and it done what it says. I didn't like the car park to the centre so I preferred to park at the sports centre rather than the Alpine centre.
