If you are an experienced / confident dry slope skier / snowboarder then you should be ok to use our slope. Remember that skiing and snowboarding on real snow is a lot faster than on a dry slope. If you are taking lessons on a dry slope, we usually recommend going back a level to be on the safe side (for example, if you’re at level 2 on the dry slope, we’d recommend going back to level 1 on real snow). These are only guidelines – you can discuss in detail your ability and ask for more advice from one of our experienced booking team members on 03448 000011.
