  • I tried snowboarding once more than 15 years ago, but hadn't tried skiing. I was due a skiing holiday in Austria with some friends so thought I'd get in a couple lessons (early 2018). All staff were friendly and helpful. The kit was explained at the start of the lesson (this eats into your lesson time a little the first time around) and I was offered the chance to make adjustments if I needed to. The lady ski instructor was welcoming, friendly and taught at a gentle pace. Everyone was accommodated and encouragement was given to all aged people in the group. Everyone in the group progressed and I think everyone enjoyed the experience. Being a small group, there was a feel of camaraderie. I only had a couple of sessions to go over the very basics, as I knew I was going to have lessons when in Austria. I think it was worth having the lessons even though a dry ski slope is very, very different to snow. It meant I wasn't totally alien to the experience when on holiday. I do think it would be very hard to make a great deal of progress on a dry ski slope, but it served it's purpose and it's a great way to get some experience before you get a chance to go on snow. By the second lesson we were on the ski lift just a few metres up and working on turns. I had confidence in the teacher, and as a result in my, at that time, very basic skiing ability. I'd recommend having a lesson or two to at least give you a feel for skiing, it will settle any nerves you may have.
  • I learned to ski here a long time ago. I moved away from the area but came back to visit a friend. Thought it would be fun to bring my boys here for their first ski lesson. It was as just as good as it was 30 years ago. Staff extremely friendly. Love how the place looks rustic as if your in an alpine resort. The hot chocolate was extremely tasty.
  • My son loves the Tobogganing, we have visited several times for this and he thoroughly enjoys it. We have yet to try out other activities but we definitely will. I had a lovely hot chocolate in the roof top cafe and my son and his friend enjoyed there freshly made milkshakes. We will visit again.
  • This place has so much to offer. Great place to learn to ski or snow board. Kids loved the tobogganing. The Frizby golf was muddy but funny. But I went a few years ago with work doing quad bikes shooting archery and off road. Brilliant. Lovely cafe and food just like in the ski resorts.
  • Didn't go skiing or boarding, went shooting instead. Only air rifles, but some nice ones. Got a pretty good score considering I hadn't done it for about 30 years. All shots on target bar 2. Spawn and his mate really enjoyed it and were, worryingly, able to call out every part of the weapon as it was pointed at by the instructor. I guess all those hours of Rainbow 6 and YouTube videos is having some educational value.... It was freezing cold, wet and windy. So the typical weather of the British outdoor event. Nothing new there. But we are stoic by nature, probably because we haven't really got any choice. But the shooting was fun. It was slowed down by some smaller kids who couldn't load the rifle, aim it or shoot it. Not sure why they were allowed to participate. Unless they were stopped, planted by the centre to slow down the rate of fire and not have to waste 60 or 70 pellets
