cracking deal i think
Wish there was an offer like this further down south. I'd love to learn to ski
Wish my daughter was a bit older and I would have jumped at this. Great deal, and I'm on 15mins away from here.

Thanks, it's a bit far for two hour lessons I'd like to do the day course.
Just a word of warning if you have never been on any skiing lessons before and are not in 110% tip tip condition then this full days corse will absolutely leave you feeling crippled the next day and that's if you manage to get through the actual full days lesson!

Your exactly right, I done mine over 2 nights and I was in agony for a week haha, the thighs and hamstrings take a beating
Snow Dome in Telford used to offer similar deals during the Summer months, although in recent years they have been rather greedy.

TBH the original price here was VERY greedy; for a few pounds more that the current you can get a whole WEEKS worth of lessons in the Alps; I paid £104 per person 2 years ago in the French Alps; the UK lessons will also be very limited, due to the size of the slope, whereas in the actual mountains there is a lot more room to practice - and of course in the afternoons (assuming you dont feel like a cripple) you can go off and practice what you learned in the morning.

The 3rd day is the worst for muscle ache etc, after that it all gets easier.

if you are serious about learning, go to the Alps, if you just want a taster, take a half day course in the UK.

We paid ~£3,000 between 6 of us for everything during a 2 week holiday in a luxury 3 bedroom apartment, 2 x 1 weeks ski lessons, 2x 1 weeks snowboard lessons, equipment hire, apartment, transport, food etc. (I didnt need lessons or gear hire, and one was along for the ride/baby sitting duties).

The price you quote sounds very good for 6 people skiing for 2 weeks. Where did you book that at?

I booked it all myself, apartment through a rental agency local to the resort, one that I have used several times in the past, lessons and rental hire via the various local agency websites. The apartment (which allegedly slept 10), was £1200 for the two weeks, although we could have booked two smaller, budget apartments for roughly half that, or a mid range apartment for £900.

When you use a tour company they charge you for the most expensive option for everything, even if you dont need it, and put an extra premium on lesson prices, ski hire etc.

For example, their ski packages include an Area Ski Pass; current price for this (where we ski), is around £400 per person for 5 days. If you are taking lessons, you get NO use of this at all, as the slopes used for lessons have free to use lifts.

It is far cheaper to buy a daily pass for the area you intend to ski; Grand Platiers for example, was £10 pp to get up the mountain, then everything up there is free to use. A Day Pass for the most popular runs on the lower slopes was £25 pp; either way it is far less than the cost of a weeks Area Pass.

Obviously every resort is different, so read up on the resort, what lifts are free and what runs they access; then price up what you need.

Since we were there teaching our then 3 y/o, most of our time we were only using the free to access Green and Nursery slopes; my son and his GF paid for more, as they took private snowboard lessons in the 2nd week, and tried a few Blue and Red runs using the £25 per day passes.
