Never skied in your life? Then now’s your chance! SKUM organises beginners lessons so you can have the opportunity to give skiing a go and without paying for a membership.

We provide full equipment hire, transport and lessons for you to get started.

Our racing team will be training next to us at the next session. Some of them were in your boots not long ago - so you'll be able to see what's possible with a little practice!

Here are the details for the next session:


-A 2 hour ski lesson with professional instructors - You'll be a pro in no time!!
-Transport, skis, boots, poles and helmets are all included in the £40 price of the session.
-All you need to bring are gloves and some warm clothes: waterproof pants and jackets (remember you will be on real snow, and it is -5ºC on the slopes!)

-Please note that this is for very beginners only.


-Wednesday 19th of February 

-We'll be leaving at 5 pm from Manchester (exact location tbc). The lesson will then be from 7 until 9pm.

-We'll need time to get changed and equipment issued in before the lessons, so please don’t be late!

This event will take place at Snozone, Castleford where you’ll be able to experience skiing on real snow!
