Skiing - Snowboarding - Tobogganing - Tubing

We are able to offer both group courses or private lessons.
A variety of courses and lessons are available depending on your ability. Our Instructors can take you from no experience what so ever through to parallel skiing and beyond.
If you prefer to learn in a group then, as well as the advanced courses, we offer two options; the condensed course or the starter session. The content of these paths is identical, they just offer different styles of learning.
Please read through the descriptions below to see which style suits you the best, If you can't decide then ring the team on 0121 7725111 who will be able to discuss the options and book you in.
Once you have chosen your pathway you may find that a ski package better suits your pocket. We really do have something for everyone!
