    I had my third snowboarding lesson at Snow Factor at the weekend. Esme was my instructor and I thought she was really great. She explained things so simply for me and I felt a lot more confident by th...  more »

    My just 3 year old had her first ski lesson with Alison yesterday. Alison was fantastic and my daughter had a great time. Great instructor to child ratio at that age. An hour on the slope is a long ti...  more »

  • Not the best customer service from behind the counter. They would not tell you if the slope is busy or not, even when we explained that we are driving in from Edinburgh. The answer was: "well it's up to you if you decide to come or not". Thanks for that... Also the pricing is a bit cheeky, as they give you a 10% discount when booking online (which was - £2.60 from the full price), and then add a £2 online booking fee at the end.. How does that make any sense? Other than that - happy to have this place in Scotland ski conditions are very irregular during the season. If you are looking for a snowboard instructor, ask for Patsy, she's amazing!
  • After only 7 sessions my son has achieved level 7, he is only 7 years old! Special thanks to James R today, my son really likes this instructor and I would highly recommend him. He is very down to earth and seems to engage with the kids very well getting the best out of them.
  • Went for the snowboard fast track lessons on Thursday! Went in a bit nervous but Esme Oldfield made me feel a lot more comfortable. Also managed to spread herself around each person who were all different levels after we did the basics. Got along really well and helped me achieve a lot more than I was expecting. I will be requesting her when I come back for the next part of the lessons.
  • This place is excellent to visor for a few hours. I had a lesson here with a friend, and we found the stag here very friendly. The guys at reception recommended what lesson we should be on ams they were right, we felt very comfortable. The instructor was also very friendly and good at his job. When we visited it was nice and quiet, not over crowded. I'd come back here in a heart beat for a cheeky session on the slopes.
  • I've been here many times before for myself and had a great time, the slope is great fun and I enjoy how they change it up often too. I went here recently with my girlfriend who uses a wheelchair and unfortunately there wasn't anything we could do on the day, there is a provided service but it needs to be organized in advance. So it's perfect for able-bodied, but just remember to plan for non able-bodied.
