When are the lessons?
We have lessons on in the evenings, every weekend and throughout the school holidays at times to suit everyone. We put on as many lessons as we can. We are constantly reviewing where the demand is and will always try and flex our schedule to get certain levels in if required.
You have full control over booking your own lessons with our online booking system. You can view all of our availability by clicking 'SNOWSPORTS' in the grey menu bar. Feel free to have a scroll through our calendar before purchasing a snowsport course, we are sure there will be lessons at times that suit you, whatever your schedule!
What should I wear?
Something comfy! You definitely don't need anything special and we strongly advise against salopettes and proper ski jackets! A pair of joggers or leggings are ideal as they give you plenty of movement (avoid jeans whenever possible) and loose layers that will keep you warm but that you can easily remove if you start getting warm. If it's raining, we'll still go ahead with lessons so a set of waterproofs is always a good idea.
As long as you are warm and comfortable, have your legs and arms are covered and you have a pair of gloves, you are good to go!
How do the snowsport courses work?
Once you purchase either a ski or snowboard course you will be sent a personalised gift voucher with a set of 5 voucher codes. You can then use these to book your lessons online, choosing dates and times that suit you.
We recommend starting out by booking your Try Skiing/Try Snowboarding (depending on which course you purchase) and your 1 Star lesson. After these lessons, we strongly recommend booking your lessons as you go.
Our easy online booking system means that you have full control over when you choose to have lessons and can make a plan that suits you.
I don't know if I want to ski or snowboard.
The first lesson in both our ski and our snowboard course is a 'Try' session - a 90 minute, fun introductory lesson for total beginners.
If you can't decide, why not try both to begin with and see which you prefer the feel of. Once you've mastered one, there's nothing stopping you trying the other!
How long do I have to complete the course?
Our winter courses are valid for 18 months from the date you purchase! Once you start learning, we would recommend visiting fairly regularly just to make sure your last lesson is still fresh in your mind but ultimately it is up to you!
Our discounted summer courses are usually only valid for the summer period. We usually have upgrade options available to extend courses if required.

How will my progress be tracked through the course?

Are there any hidden costs with the snowsport course?
Not at all. Equipment hire is always included in all of our costs, including helmet hire!

The only other potential cost is if more than one lesson needs to be repeated however you'll receive a 50% discount on our standard pricing if this does happen.
What is a repeat lesson?
Skiing and snowboarding are skills which require a little practise to master. It will 'click' with some people quicker than others. Each of our lessons has a core set of skills which must be reached before you can move up to the next lesson. Your instructor will always let you know when you are ready.
Sometimes, stages take a little longer than others and it is necessary to repeat a lesson. Included in your course is one free repeat which can be used at any stage of the course, if recommended by your instructor. If further repeat lessons are required, you receive a 50% discount on our usual pricing on as many lessons as you need.
Our instructors are experts at what they do and will always tailor the lessons to your needs and learning as much as possible. We guarantee we will get you through the course!
