The Gosling Ski Centre offers a wide range of activities for all ages, beginner to advanced.

Our Booking Process

As availability can change on a daily basis, we prefer to book lessons at least 1 week in advance.

We will discuss potential dates/times based on current bookings and instructor availability. There will be occasions especially during the peak months from October to the end of March where we will have to discuss dates and times with our instructors and get back to you.  Please be aware this may take a few days to arrange.  Once confirmed, all private lessons will require full payment in advance to secure the booking.

To find out more, or to book a lesson please get in touch.

Junior and Adult Courses

Beginner Ski Course Dates - September 2019 through to March 2020

Adults £110, Junior’s (minimum age 7 years old, maximum age 16 years old) £90.

The beginner courses start with a one hour introductory lesson to allow you to familiarise yourself with putting on and using your ski equipment on the beginners slope. This is followed by 3 x two hour sessions.  It is important to try and make all 4 lessons so you don’t fall behind the rest of the group.

Saturday courses: Introductory lesson is from 2.30pm - 3.30pm for the first week, with subsequent weeks taking place from 2.30pm - 4.30pm.

Sunday courses: Introductory lesson is from 10am – 11am, with subsequent weeks taking place from 10am - 12noon.

We ask for a deposit of 50% of the total course fee (non-refundable) at the time of booking to secure a place on the course as demand is high.

Please ensure you arrive 15 minutes prior to the lesson to allow time to put on your ski equipment, and for the lesson to start promptly.
