FAQ’S

Why are lessons 90 minutes?

We feel that giving 90 minutes for the entire experience, allows you enough time to kit up, have a briefing by your instructor and still have 60 minutes of teaching time on the slope. 

If the kitting up and briefing process is quicker, then you get more time on the slope to learn! 

What do I need to bring?

All essential equipment is provided for you – You just need to bring gloves, long sleeves and long trousers.

If you have a helmet, bring that too.

What if I don't have everything I need?

Long trousers and long sleeves are essential.

If you don’t have a helmet, we can lend you one of ours and if you don’t have gloves, you can purchase some for £6.

We offer skis, poles, boots and helmets at no extra cost.

What's the difference between Levels and Private Tuition?

Levels are a group activity, that anyone can book onto and you may not know the others on your session. Some of the Levels Sessions also run for longer than just one session. 

Private Tuition is just that… private – Whether it’s just you on your own or private for your family. You’ll have the instructors undivided attention and have a more comfortable learning environment. 

What if it rains?

Whatever the weather, lessons will go ahead. If our instructors think the weather is too dangerous to be on the slope, they will call you to rearrange. 

How big are the slopes?

Our main slopes is 100 metres. Our medium slope is around 80-90 metres and our junior slope is around 20 metres.
