Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What should I wear?

A: To take part in a ski or snowboard lesson you must have long sleeves, long trousers and gloves. If it is hot weather then leggings/tracksuit bottoms and long-sleeved t-shirts are perfectly fine to wear.

Q: Can I bring my own equipment?

A: You can indeed. However due to the nature of dry slope skiing and snowboarding wear and tear is increased so we recommend that you save your kit for the mountains and use ours on the mats.

Q: Do I need to wear a helmet?

A: Helmets are optional at the slope, however, if you are taking part in freestyle or race clubs then a helmet is a must.

Q: How early should I arrive for my lesson?

A: If you could be on site at least 10 minutes before the session start time, that will allow you enough time to get suited and booted.

Q: What is the minimum age for skiing/snowboarding?

A: We can take children as young as 4 years and up for skiing and children from 8 years and up for snowboarding.

Q: What surface do you have?

A: We use PERMA-SNOW on our two slopes. It is quite different to the diamond matting that dry slope skiing is known for, as it does not have any holes in the mats. This makes it a very user friendly surface to ski and snowboard on.

Q: I can snowboard already, however, I have never been on a dry slope. What are the major differences?

A: Despite what level of skier you maybe on the snow, on dry slope you will start a level lower. On snow you can get away with minor flaws in your technique, where as on the dry slope you cannot. Snow surface is a lot faster and easier. The snow building up under your skis or board along with the reduced friction can help you make the turn or the stop, whereas on dry slopes you have to turn the ski and edge the board using technique which may take some time to get used to, if you have only ever skied on snow.
