Our team are always on hand to make sure you have the best experience possible. Please ask if you have any questions and they will be very happy to help.
By making a booking with Snozone or Skizone it is assumed that you have read and accepted the following terms & conditions.
We reserve the right for our team to ask you to leave the slope and the premises if you do not abide to the Terms and Conditions outlined below. In such cases, no refund will be given.
BOOKINGS: We advise that you pre-book as time on our snow slope is subject to availability. You can book on site at the reception desk, or online at www.skizoneuk.com. Skizone reserves the right to refuse admission without refund or transfer. If you need to cancel or alter your booking, we require a minimum of 72 hours notice to allow for a refund.
If your booking needs to be transferred, Snozone and Skizone require a minimum of 72 hours notice and this must be rebooked within 30 days of your initial activity date. This will be subject to lesson availability.
A transfer to the following month will incur a £5 transfer fee per person.
ARRIVAL TIME: We ask you to arrive 45 minutes (20 minutes at Skizone) before your activity starts. If you are not ready with your clothing and equipment within 5 minutes of the activity start time, we reserve the right to refuse you admission as you will miss the health & safety briefing.
We will endeavour to reschedule your lesson for the same day, however if this is not possible, we will try to transfer you to another date within a 30 day period. The £5 fee will still be applicable.
We will do everything that we possibly can to accommodate your late arrival but sometimes this may not be possible. Our programme times are fixed so that we can let our Coaches know their working patterns.
MAIN SLOPE USE: We require everyone who wishes to use the main slope for ‘recreational use’ to be of a minimum standard unless attending a lesson or accompanied by a Snozone Coach.
You should be able to control your speed, conﬁdently link your turns and fit your boots correctly. If you are unsure about your ability or have any questions regarding minimum standards please visit our website under the ‘lessons section’ where this is defined in full.
We accept no responsibility for damage to equipment or clothing or personal injury whilst undertaking any activity within the building.
TEACHING: To ensure the safety of all slope users, no-one other than our fully qualiﬁed Snozone or Skizone Coaches are permitted to teach or provide coaching on our slope. Should anyone be found coaching or soliciting for clients to coach who isn’t a Snozone or Skizone Coach, or without clear prior approval, they will be asked to leave the slope and the building and either suspended or expelled from Snozone or Skizone.
