We can offer ‘taster’ sessions and Level One lessons in both Skiing and Snowboarding for those students with little or no previous experience. The cost of these sessions is £20 and includes all equipment hire, 50 minutes instruction, insurance and transport to and from the venue.

There is also the possibility that we can take our more experienced skiers and snowboarders for an hour on the main slope. The cost of this session is £15. Students using the main slope must be able to link turns and control their speed effectively.

All places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

Update - 31st March 2017

We are organising a couple of visits to the Chill Factore during the Summer term for the students who are joining us on our trip to Sunday River in February 2018. Due to the large size of our party and being restricted by the size of our minibuses, we are going to split these first two visits between the girls and boys. Subsequent visits next Autumn/Winter will be based more on ability levels and demand. The dates this term are;

Wednesday 10th May – Girls only

Thursday 15th June  -  Boys only

Both visits will be after school with lessons starting at 5.00pm. Return to school will be at approximately 7.00pm, depending upon traffic. Students will receive an information sheet before the visits.

Letters for the girls visit in May will be available from the P.E. Office from Friday 21st April. We will inform you when letters for the boys visit will be made available.

Have a good Easter!

Regards,

The Ski Team
