With 2 main slopes, 3 nursery slopes a jump slope and a range of freestyle features the centre has something to satisfy every level of ability. Tuition, practice, skiing, snowboarding and tube rides are all available.
Always popular, the centre offers pay and go tubing sessions on four specially built runs, complete with uphill travelator. Tubes are like super-strong rubber rings with smooth bases, that you slide downhill on – a thrilling and fun activity for all the family. Tube sessions last for an hour and are open to both children and adults, although you must be over 4 years old and 1 metre in height to take part. Family tickets are available for the tubing sessions. The Snowsports Centre also offers Tubing parties, a great alternative for a Birthday or special occasion.
Café 360 at the centre is open daily, and provides a full range of hot and cold drinks and snacks along with great views from the balcony.
Please note – You may only practice on the slopes if you have had prior instruction. You may practise on the Main Slope only if you can ski/board competently and use the lifts and tows. The centre does not allow instruction by anyone other than their own instructors.
