We visited this place after seeing it from a YouTube review. We only done the tobogganing and found it to be really great fun fun. Great friendly staff and reasonably priced. Would recommend to anyone:)

My 4 year old daughter has been having private ski lessons with Connor since February and we have found him to be an amazing instructor and brilliant with kids. All the staff are friendly and approachable- Rosalie, Bev, Claire to name a few. The building is dated now and could do with a makeover but it doesn't detract from the... More

We called at the ski centre whilst in the area. We had not booked but were accommodated by the kind and friendly receptionist. We plumped for the triple package - three toboggan runs, three viper slides and 30 minutes on the snow tubes - great value! All the family had great fun but had tired legs walking back up the...

Really enjoyed a few hours here. It is a bit "tired", but it's great fun. We did the Sno Tube & Toboggan combo, & well worth the money. All the staff were polite & friendly. Just wish more people would use this venue, so investment could take place, to make it a truly great place.

Went with friends (4 of us in total) for the snow tubing and tobogan run. Had one of our best days out for ages. Plenty if time to do several snow tube runs, we could have done more but we were worn out with laughing. Tobogan run was really enjoyable - apologies to the riders behind our friend - she's... More

We opted for the dual tobogganing and tubes rides on our first ever visit. Whilst it is clear the infrastructure place could do with a injection of cash, we did have a great time. Zooming on the toboggans was great fun indeed and enjoyed by us all!

Booked a fun day for both my teenage children, this included 2 snowboarding lesion and other activities on site, food and drink provided for less than £45 for both, excellent value, feel the facilities need updating up still worth a visit, if booked in advance greater savings can be had

My 14 year old daughter had her first lesson here. Very easily booked on line and helpful. Great group lesson with lots of patience as she was a little nervous. Definitely go back for another lesson

Only reviewing the tobogganing as that's all we went there for hence the 'very good' Good fun done this before in Germany and Switzerland. £8 for 5 goes so good value. Unfortunately the rest of the place is a dive and needs serious money chucking at it. Which is a shame as it could be something good
