Learning to Ski & Snowboard

Whether you are a complete beginner or just looking to refresh your skills and improve, we have a range of lessons and courses available to suit you.

The techniques you use and learn on an artificial slope are identical to snow and can help you get more from your winter holiday – plus save you valuable time, money and energy in the long run!

Whilst the sensation of sliding on fresh snow is hard to beat, the artificial slope provides a consistent environment which is great for learning and practising.

There is also the benefit of learning on your doorstep when it suits you at a fraction of the cost of foreign ski schools or UK Snowdomes! 


Private Ski and Snowboard lessons tailored to your own requirements, from a complete beginner or nervous intermediate, right through to the advanced skier looking to develop carved turns and beyond.

You can progress at your own pace, on your own or with family and friends. Teaching can be more intense and focused so less time than a course is needed to develop your skills.

Couples or groups of similar mixed ability are welcome provided there is not too bigger gap in standards. A complete beginner with someone who has not skied or boarded for many years can be a good combination, and a nervous intermediate with a parallel skier looking to improve can also work well together on a lesson. Please call or pop in to discuss if you are unsure of your level. Wide differences in abilities, plus skier & snowboard lessons can NOT be mixed, and a separate lesson/instructor will be required.

Private lessons are available all year round for skiing or snowboarding and allow the flexibility to arrange the lesson during any opening times (except before 2pm on Saturdays).

Lessons are for one hour with a minimum age of 7 years for skiing (kindergarten and infant ski lessons are available for 4-6 years – please see below) and 12 years for snowboarding.

Booking is essential – we recommend booking in advance but please give us a call and we will try and accommodate you at short notice where possible.

Little Skier Private Lessons - Age 4 to 6

We provide ½ hour private ski lessons for 4 – 6 years olds.

The aim of these sessions is introduce little ones to skiing and familiarise them with the equipment, in a fun and safe environment.

Please note that whilst our aim is to teach basic skiing skills, we ask parents to be realistic with regards to the level of progression. Use of the main ski slope and artificial slope drag lifts requires a reasonable level of skill, physical strength & weight and your child’s safety and enjoyment are our main priority as instructors.

Cost for 30 minute lessons are £33 and £10 for any additional children.

SATURDAY KINDERGARDEN is also available for 4 – 6 year olds!


Another great way of enjoying your lessons is to get together with your friends, club, association or work colleagues and arrange a group lesson.

We can take up to 60 for skiing groups and a maximum of 8 snowboarding. If you’re planning a group holiday or would like to get your friends to have a go, a lesson together is great fun. After the lesson you could use The Lodge Bar to have a meal or drink to really finish off a great outing.

Please be sure that you are all of a similar standard. Same conditions as Private Tuition apply.

Great as a gift or for those who just want to try a new and exciting sport!

Can’t decide if Skiing or Snowboard is the sport for you??? Let our taster sessions help you decide!

Our taster sessions start with a brief talk on the equipment and safety, followed by about 45 minutes out on the slope as an introduction to skiing. A nice and simple way to try a new sport and see if skiing or snowboarding is for you!

All equipment is included in the price!

All you need to bring is yourself and any old pair of gloves! We ski and board in the cold, warm, wind, rain, ice and even snow sometimes, so just dress accordingly for the weather with your arms and sleeves covered. If you have a nice long pair of ski socks, stick them on to enjoy your ski experience that little bit more!!

£30 per session – Booking is required on one of the set dates on our Courses Page, or call for availability!
