Open Sessions – winter only
Bowles offers ski coaching as part of most of our open sessions.
There is no need to book open slope sessions, just turn up.
Boot, ski and snowboard hire is included in the price, but feel free to bring your own.

Race Club is for good skiers to learn race technique with expert coaching. It runs year-round.
Kids Club is for under-14’s. (ages 6-8 need a parent present). The afternoon’s coaching progresses through ability ranges – skiers working on speed control, steering and snowploughing should come earlier in the afternoon, more advanced skiers should come after 3.00pm.
Open Sessions cost £8 per hour (£7 for under-16s), apart from Kids Club (£6 per hour) and Race Club (£7 per session). You can also ski all morning at our Tuesday and Thursday Coffee Club for only £16.
For all of these sessions, skiers should be able to stop and turn under control and boarders should be able to do a falling leaf. If you’re not quite up to this level, why not book a course or call us or email if you are interested in a private lesson
All skiers and boarders need to sign the membership book each visit and accept responsibility for their own safety. Under 18s need the membership book signed by a parent or guardian.
