Have fun in the snow while learning an addictive new sport
Learn the basics of skiing in an experience designed for beginners
Safety briefings and all ski equipment provided
Learning to ski is fantastic fun and very rewarding. In most of Britain we don't get much snow so we've sorted out this cool skiing experience at SnowDome, the UKs top real snow centre. It's perfect for complete beginners, whether you just want to try out something new or whether you want to get some practise in before going on holiday. First your instructor will run through the safety requirements, then it's your go - try out some basic moves and techniques before going down the slope, and back again. We suspect you'll have a really exciting time and this experience could even signify the start of a life-long love of this amazing sport.
Minimum age is 17. You'll need to be reasonably physically fit. This experience is ideal for complete beginners.
SnowDome's real snow-covered slopes are indoors, so this experience won't be affected by the weather.
Lasts for just around two hours, including a 10 minute briefing and an hour and 45 minutes on the snow. Please arrive a few minutes early to have your boots and board fitted.
Numbers on the Day
A maximum of ten people take part in each lesson with a qualified instructor.
Friends and family can come along and watch you. There are excellent facilities for spectators and good views of the main slope from the balcony.
Wrap up in lots of warm layers. Wear waterproofs (top and trousers) if you've got them. Warm gloves are essential. A snowboard, boots and protective headwear will be provided. There are (20p chargable) lockers and changing rooms available.
Other on-site activities include tobogganing, adrenalin tubing, and ice-skating. SnowDome also has two bars and restaurants on-site.
