At Stoke Ski Centre, Junior Ski Lessons are for 4 to 16 year olds, snowboarding lessons are available for over 12s. Both are run by seasoned and friendly professionals who'll equip you with the skills required to get out there on your own safely and often with surprising panache!
Most people take to skiing well with some supportive tuition, but if it turns out it's not for you then you can still enjoy a visit, as every weekend tubing and bum boarding are also available (from 1pm until 4pm for £5 per hour)! These are wicked fun with absolutely no skill or balance required so everyone can join in if they have the nerve: they go quite fast! They also hold tubing sessions during the school holidays (but not bank holidays) operating at the same times and for the same prices as the weekend action.
They also hold Fun Race Days, where intermediate and advanced juniors (plus adults) can enjoy 2 timed runs and a dual slalom! Great for getting some stats on how you're progressing and loads of fun besides! There are only 4 dates this year to do it one each month May, June, July and September, so sign up early! It's £12 per person for the day.
If you're competent skiers already (you must be able to control your speed, link turns and use the poma lift safely) then open practice sessions are available for you on a drop in basis without booking from 6pm to 9pm weekdays and 1pm to 4pm on weekends. Plus, there are Freestyle nights held every Wednesday and Thursday evening from 6pm for a bit of extra fun!
Guests must wear gloves and long socks (along with some other clothes please, not on their own!) and they will provide the ski and snowboarding boots and any other necessary equipment, all covered by your original price.
