Had an awesome time today at Snow Factor. Beginners snow boarding lesson skills 1 with our instructor Esme. Loved every second of it. Soo much fun. Esme was brilliant, explained everything soo well and gave everyone personalised tips to help them understand the moves which meant we were all able to get up and do the moves. Will be back for more lessons!

This place is worth a visit. We had a mix up with our booking and staff could not have been more helpful. The kids got to snowboard and we were invited back for a skiing lesson.

All clothing is available to hire and the staff can’t do enough to help you. Tuition is in small groups and by the end of the lesson people were getting the hang of it - just needed more practice.

The staff make this place. I would recommend this for any age. Parking is free in the large car park and there are lots of eateries in the centre. Fantastic Day Out!

I recently had two skills 2 ski lessons, one with Mark D and one with Tim. I was advised to retake skills 2 to practice and build up confidence. Both instructors were fabulous, taking the time to give me one-to-one advice, even in a group lesson.
Mark was especially helpful in my first lesson and his love for his job really shone through, it is rare to find someone like that!
I would strongly recommend anyone wanting to learn snow sports to go to Snow Factor, all of the staff are super helpful and the value for money is great!

I recently attended a private snowboard lesson with my boyfriend and we had Patsy who was a fantastic teacher. He had previously completed skills 1 & 2 whereas I had only experienced a taster session therefore we were at different skill levels. Patsy was great in paying close attention teaching us both on technqiues we had to improve. By the end of the lesson we had learned a lot and felt a lot more confident on the board. Thank you Patsy for making our experience enjoyable and fun!
