Frequently Asked Questions
Is there something for the children to do whilst the adults go skiing?
Although many children love to take to the slopes for the first time with us, we also understand the need for a child-friendly area that they can enjoy whilst you’re getting some quality time in on the snow.
That’s why we have our very own Kids Club right here on-site. Fully kitted out with toys, games and arts and crafts, your little ones will be spoilt for choice with things to do. Carefully designed by MiniMec, every aspect of our popular Kids Club is designed to nurture little minds, and although it’s an unsupervised area, we would be more than happy to assist if you need a baby-sitter!
Are the ski slopes suitable for all abilities?
Absolutely! We’re proud to say we offer a vast and varied ski experience, offering 124 pistes, ranging from beginner to intermediate, perfect for all skill levels.
• 9 green pistes – ideal for beginners
• 41 blue pistes – great for those transitioning from beginner to intermediate
• 50 red pistes – for intermediate levels
• 7 black pistes – for expert skiers
If you’re unsure which piste is best suited to you, our team would be more than happy to help.
Do you offer classes for those who are new to skiing?
Yes! We understand how daunting skiing can be if you’ve never done it before, everything from the attire to the kit can seem overwhelming. That’s why we offer extras to help your first experience be a good one, including high-quality ski equipment for hire, to our popular ski guide and school.
If you feel you could use some extra guidance, or simply want to improve your technique, our daily ski guide and school is open from 9-5pm.
