How Can I Book a Session?

Skieasy customers are required to book all of their sesisons in advance. Please call us at the office on +44 (0) 20 8994 3314 to make a booking and we can take a payment over the phone. Lines are open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. 7 days a week but feel free to send us an email to ski@dukesmeadows.com if you are intending to book out of hours.

Can I Book Online?

At this time, we are unfortunately unable to accept online bookings due to the need for human intervention in matching our clients up. Please call the office on +44 (0) 20 8994 3314 to book.

Which Sessions Can I Book In To?

We run separate sessions for skiers and boarders and aim to match customers of similar ability so both can progress at the correct pace. We separate younger kids, older kids and adults into different booking classes so you should never find that you are skiing with anybody outside of your progression rate and try our hardest to make sure that ability levels are always on par between the two customers on the slope. This means that with regular bookings in the run up to the season you may find yourself with a "ski buddy" who you may end up skiing with each week.

Is There a Minimum Age Restriction?

For our normal ski sessions, the minimum age is 5 and for regular snowboard sessions, the minimum age is 8. We may be able to cater for younger skiers, but only as part of private and family bookings so drop us a line to see if we can help.

Can I Amend or Cancel My Booking?

Our terms and conditions for standard sessions allow customers to reschedule or cancel their booking as long as this is done a minimum of 48 hours before the start of their session time. Please give us a ring at the office as soon as you know that you would like to amend your booking. We do not provide refunds on sessions booked under our multi-session pack purchases. Separate conditions apply to private sessions and event bookings.

What Are Your Opening Times?

We are open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. 7 days a week but times may be subject to change both in peak season and the summer so feel free to double check with the office.

What Equipment Will I Need?

We provide almost everything that you need to ski or snowboard at Skieasy. The following will be available at the beginning of you session:

  1. Ski or Snowboard Boots
  2. Skis or Snowboard
  3. Poles (if required)
  4. Helmets (mandatory for all children under the age of 12 and all snowboarders).

We do suggest that you bring long, thick ski socks with you to ensure that your feet are comfortable throughout the session.

Can I Bring My Own Gear?

If you have your own boots, you are more than welcome to bring them along but please refrain from bringing your own skis or snowboards as all equipment needs to be fully de-waxed and edged so as not to damage the Skieasy surface.

What Clothes Should I Wear?

You can come in jeans and t-shirt if you like, but we do put water on the slope so you may get a bit damp! We advise you wear a long-sleeved lightweight top and loose fitting trousers (tracksuit bottoms are ideal) and long, smooth lightweight socks are the best option for your feet to fit ski boots as snugly as possible. We’d recommend you bring a jumper with you and during colder months you may wish to wear warmer clothes. 

How Long Will My Session Be?

Our sessions are one hour long. All sessions are with an instructor, you won’t be able to ski on your own on the slope.

What is The Maximum Amount of People Allowed on The Slope?

A maximum of two people (adults or children) are permitted on the slope together at any given time.

How Long Will I Ski or Snowboard For?

Every session will last for an hour, beginning an ending on the hour. But the way book in lessons means that there could potentially be two pairs of two in the hour. In these cases we will cycle the two pairs on and off the slope every 10 or 15 minutes. It is very rare for anybody to ski for more than about 5 minutes straight on snow and your legs will get tired so you will welcome the rest!.
