Snowboarding in not just a sport, but it quickly become a lifestyle and life-long-love which you'll want to share and practice with other people. Private lessons are great, but what other way to make new snowboard buddies then by joining in on a group lesson.

We offer a range Snowboarding Group lessons- This way we make sure that everyone in your group has the same goals and objectives. Our group lessons have a maximum of 6 participants, are an hour long, and are real fun!

Beginner Sessions: In this lesson you will learn about your equipment, how to get around with just one foot strapped in as well as the basics of stopping and controlling yourself on the hill in a side slip. Our taster sessions are fun and fast paced, while remaining informative to give you an understanding and insight into Snowboarding as a sport.

Improver Sessions: After a taster, you will be ready to move onto Beginner lessons. Developing on the knowledge gained in the taster session, you will begin to become more mobile and begin to move across the slope. As your control on a snowboard increases, we can move further up the hill allowing a little more speed while remaining safe. After you are comfortable controlling yourself on both heelside and toeside, you are ready to move onto the lift!

Lift User Sessions: It can take anywhere between 10 mins and 2 hours to get used to a drag lift. Therefore occasionally, when you are ready to move onto the lift, we will change a group lesson to a "lift lesson" where we focus mainly on helping you feel comfortable going up the hill, rather than down. 

Intermediate Sessions: These fun lessons are perfect for those of you who are able to use the lift on your own and looking at learning to turn, all the way to seasoned riders who are looking at perfecting their turning technique. Now you are more mobile, these lessons shift focus from instruction to guided self discovery: What works for you and how can we give you the opportunity to have the most fun you can have. Basic freestyle instruction is also available in these sessions.
