We visited here on a Wednesday attracted by the half price open practice session. We paid £5 each (usually £10) for 1.5 hours on the floodlit slope which includes ski/board and boot hire. However as mentioned in other reviews the slope is desperate for a re-fitting. It is patchy and parts are cordoned off for repair, although there is no... More

Have visited for several parties but never used the ski slope before. It is very dangerous with a huge patch worn out in the centre that people were falling over on. This needs fencing off, not just a few bits of plastic. I find it interesting that the parent company advertises itself as a vendor of ski matting. Try selling... More

Don't bother to buy tickets if the centre looks even slightly busy. We spent 2 1/2 hours here and had 2 five minute toboggan rides and 1 ten minute go on the snow tubes. A total of about 20 minutes. The snow tubes only run for ten minutes once every hour. The manager had lots of excuses but the bottom... More

Thankfully the open ski session we attended was cheap but still would not have bothered had we known how dilapidated this venue is. The top half of the run was closed (not mentioned on their website), presumably because the damaged, uneven, bald & mouldy surface which meant that only half the lower slope was available, was mirrored further up. The... More

Awesome lesson on the slope, great instructors and gear was ok. Did get busy before lunch but go early and you'll get a bit more room on the slope. We had a trainee and lead instructors so two instructors for the price of one! Both were amazing at helping us learn to snowboard after years of skiing!!

Great day out! We got the ride and slide deal for £10 each which was such good value for money, 5 goes on the toboggan and some time tubing. I didn't think the 15 mins tubing was going to be enough but by the end up running up and down the hill we were all knackered! If I lived in... More

Not sure how you suppose to use this 'ski' slope. We are intermediate levels but found it absolutely frustrating to ski and snowboard as slopes are not slippery at all, they are mouldy, grass growing through with flipped carpet corners constantly in a way, you had to constantly push the board just to get any move therefore it's impossible to...

Visited with a group of friends on Saturday gone after recently moving to the area. All I can say is that you will not be disappointed. We're in our mid twenties and had so much fun. On a weekend they offer the ride and slide deal for £10 which you can't complain about which offers you five go's on the... More

Fun to give a go but the equipment and ramp seem to need some TLC. The taboggun run is fun and the food is nice for a quick lunch. The surrounding areas are lovely for a little walk.
