This place is brilliant. My 12 year old son went for his first ever ski lesson last night and he loved it. All the staff we dealt with were really friendly and helpful, the equipment and clothing we hired were great and the instructor (called Will) was absolutely fantastic - he really encouraged my boy and made the whole experience...
