Starting with the basics on the nursery slope,
this 6 hour course is taught over several sessions.
You’ll be getting to grips with the kit, balance and
linking turns by the end, in preperation for supervised session!
What age can you learn to Snowboard?
Our Junior Snowboard Group is aged from 8 to 14, but you’ll need to attend a set of Beginner Lessons first.
Our regular Taster sessions are 12+ but once every month, we run a Taster session for 8-14 year olds.
Saturday Beginner Lessons alternate between 12+ and 8-14.
How much does it cost?
Depends on which session or lesson you book – check out prices here
How do I book?
You can book a Taster online. For any other lessons, please give us a call 01603 662781.
What time do we need to arrive?
For Tasters and Lessons, please arrive 30 minutes early to get kitted up.
I’m a complete beginner, where do I start?
If you just fancy a try, then the 1 hour Taster is perfect! If you want to learn the basics, then definitely Beginner Lessons.
What should I bring/wear?
Head to our What to Wear page 🙂
Do you provide kit?
We provide the helmet, boots, board, wrist guards, knee and elbow pads – once you’ve been signed off from the top of the main slope, we do expect you to purchase your own wrist guards, knee and elbow pads.
Can I bring my own?
Yes! Lots of people bring their own kit when they regularly snowboard.
Will there be an Instructor?
Definitely!!! All of our Instructors are fully qualified volunteers, who teach to share their love of the sport, our heroes!
I’ve snowboarded before, can I try your slope?
Afraid you can’t just rock up, but if you are able to link turns and control your speed then Supervised is for you. Our Instructors need to know you are safe before letting you lose!
I can snowboard, can I teach my family/friends?
Nope! You may know what you’re doing but our fabulous Instructors go through a lot of continual training and checks to ensure they are competent to teach on our slopes 😊
“My partner and I loved the idea of snowboarding. He can ski but I can’t so decided to try boarding as neither of us had done it before. All the trainers were brilliant, Mark especially! We felt completely at ease and felt everyone had great knowledge of the sport. We loved it so much we will be booking the beginner lessons! See you soon!”
“We go every week. The staff are fantastic, supportive and encouraging. The facilities are equally good. We have used the skiing and are now taking up snowboarding. Can’t recommend them enough. Great food, bar and viewing area upstairs
