Snowboarding Lessons

Snowboarding is a very popular sporting holiday. You can’t just put on the correct gear and grab the latest most coolest board and hit the slopes. You will need some lessons and a professional instructor that has all the relevant certifications to teach you. Our friendly instructors are equipped with the knowledge to help you learn how to snowboard.

All sessions must be pre-booked. Children must be 10 years old or over and larger than a size 2 shoe, snowboarding requires strength, and youngsters under 10 years are unlikely to have the strength and stamina to board and we recommend they learn to ski first.
