Fun activities. Suitable for a wide range of ages. Staff friendly wit children and staff. Unfortunately there are no lunch rooms for school. (July 2021 - Primary School)




(March 2020 - Primary School)




Superb - first time I have used it. It was much better than Xscape - arrival / checking in and organisation in particular was brilliant. Beginner's slop great and having a 1h50m lesson allowed the students to make much more progress than 1h. (March 2020 - Secondary School)




Excellent group leaders. The children were engaged and had a fantastic trip. A slight miscommunication meant that two children ended up in snow play. All were happy in the end. (February 2020 - Primary School)




The children enjoyed the activities both in the snow zone and in the sports hall. The day was well organised and fit the intended learning. (February 2020 - Primary School)




The pupils thoroughly enjoyed the trip to Chillfactore. The lessons and skate park went down really well with all pupils and it would be something we look to do again in the future. (February 2020 - Secondary School)




(January 2020 - Primary School)




Great instructors. Children really enjoyed the starter lesson. (January 2020 - Primary School)




We go here every summer holidays it does not cost a lot and the young people love it. (January 2020 - Secondary School)




Well organised group activities - skiing taster and snow park. Excellent, non weather dependent, end of year trip. (November 2019 - Primary School)




(November 2019 - Primary School)




Very well organised and extremely accommodating (September 2019 - Secondary School)




(September 2019 - Primary School)




Excellent service. Good staffing ratio. Outcomes achieved. (July 2019 - Primary School)




Can be a bit chaotic when large school groups are all changing and returning gear. Could make it a bit more obvious with clear instructions and signs. Also in snow park signs and visual directions would also help. The 'safety briefing' is all well and good but instructions are not that clear. We were watched walking up the slope to and making our way to the ice tube only to be eventually told to go back down and get boards. (July 2019 - Primary School)




excellent experience (July 2019 - Primary School)




Well organised, excellent instruction. (July 2019 - Primary School)




(June 2019 - Secondary School)




For the cost it would have been better if they offered the children some free time to play it was a very rigid timetable. Some staff did not deliver the activity as well as others and were slightly unprofessional. (May 2019 - Primary School)




(March 2019 - Primary School)




Excellent service and great ski instructors (March 2019)




The trip did not go ahead due to pupil numbers (January 2019)




Excellent service and instuctors (January 2019 - Secondary School)

DS UK are extremely good at getting our students on the slope in a safe and secure fashion. Oh, and the students loved every minute!!!! (April 2018 - Secondary School)




Expensive however it is worth doing the beginners 6 hour course as it provides you with the basic skills enabling the beginner quicker access onto the slopes once in resort. I believe that they should review the terms and conditions for refunds or change of date for schools. (April 2018 - Secondary School)




The venue were welcoming and staff good. (March 2018 - Secondary School)

Great instruction and new lay-out is better for dealing with groups. A little pedestrian at the check-in station to get tickets on arrival. (December 2017 - Secondary School)
