Ski or Snowboard Gift Voucher

A fun introduction to skiing or snowboarding for complete beginners!

What is this voucher for?

This voucher is for our Try skiing or Try Snowboarding session. An hour and a half skiing or snowboarding taster session suitable for anyone over eight! Snowboarders must also be at least 120cm tall with size 2 feet or bigger (adult uk sizing). Perfect for anyone who is thinking about learning to ski or just wants to give it a try.

How do I book?

You will receive a set of unique voucher codes which can be used to book on our website. You can select the date and time that suits you. Vouchers are valid for 18 months. All you have to do is decide if you want to ski or snowboard!

How do the sessions work?

You will be in the safe hands of our experienced and qualified instructors on our gently sloping beginner area. With at least an hour on the slope you'll get used to wearing snowsport kit and play some fun games and mini challenges out on the slope.
A great taster experience and an ideal first step for anyone thinking about booking onto our more structured snowsport lessons.

The hour and a half session includes your kit up time. Your friendly instructor will explain all the equipment, ensure it all fits correctly and go through a safety briefing.

Can I give this voucher as a gift?

Absolutely! Personlise your voucher with your recipient's name and a personal message. Your confirmation email will include a link to your full colour, personalised gift voucher that you can print off immediately.
FAQ's

You can use Tobogganing vouchers against standard individual toboggan spaces.


If your voucher is for Tobogganing, chips and a drink, please double-check the cafe opening times.

If the cafe is not available when you visit for your toboggan session, you will be issued a voucher that can be redeemed on a future visit for chips and a drink. 


If you would rather use toboggan vouchers towards an exclusive session, you can use the value of your voucher towards any activity. Simply enter your voucher codes during checkout and your basket total will be discounted by the amount originally paid for your voucher(s). 


Please note, toboggan vouchers are not valid on Twilight Tobogganing. 

No. We cannot allow teaching on our slope by anyone other than our qualified, employed and insured instructors. We will ask your whole party to leave the slope if seen to be teaching someone who cannot ski or snowboard.

Equipment hire is always included in the cost and we would always recommend using our skis and boards. However, if you are using our slope as a recreational skier or snowboard, you are welcome to bring your own boots, helmets and pads. There is no discount available for bringing your equipment. 


Mendip cannot accept responsibility for any damage caused by our slope. 



We run lessons throughout the week at evenings, weekends and in the daytime. We are constantly reviewing the demand and will always try and flex our schedule to get certain levels in if required.

You have full control over booking your lessons with our online booking system. Click here to view availability and book online.


Feel free to have a scroll through our calendar before purchasing a snowsport course, we are sure there will be lessons at times that suit you, whatever your schedule!



Something comfy! You definitely don't need anything special and we strongly advise against salopettes and proper ski jackets! A pair of joggers or leggings are ideal as they give you plenty of movement (avoid jeans whenever possible) and loose layers that will keep you warm but that you can easily remove if you start getting warm. If it's raining, we'll still go ahead with lessons so a set of waterproofs is always a good idea.

As long as you are warm and comfortable, have your legs and arms covered, and you have a pair of gloves, you are good to go!

All of our activities, sessions and lessons do need to be booked in advance. Everything can be booked online, via our website.

Click here to read more about our snowsport courses.

All of our snowsport lesson times include kit up and de-kit so you just need to arrive 5 - 10 minutes before your session time to check in and complete some paperwork.

It is really tricky to tell what level lesson would be suitable for you if you have previous experience as it will be different for everyone. We would recommend booking a private lesson so our instructors can coach and advise which level of group lesson is best for you.

Our group ski and snowboard lessons will only ever have a maximum of 8 people per instructor.


Private lessons can have up to 8 people (age 8+). 


Minis group lessons will have a maximum of 4 people per instructor. Minis private lessons are for just one person (ages 5 - 8). 


All slope users must wear a helmet whilst on the slope. We always include helmet hire at no additional charge. Gloves must be worn whilst on the slope, please bring these with you or they are available for purchase onsite.

The actual content of each session can be found by clicking on the individual sessions on our activity planner. 


In terms of the timings of each session, here is a rough breakdown...


-You are asked to arrive at least 10 minutes before the start of your session so that you can fill in any relevant paperwork, make sure you are wearing the correct clothing, and head into the kit room ready for the instructor.


-Kitting up and de-kitting time is included in the lesson as it is an important part of the learning process. You will be taught how to kit yourselves up safely, and how to remove your kit without damaging it. That whole process gets quicker as you progress through the course, but it can still take up to 45 minutes depending on your group.,


-A debrief is also included in the lesson time, where the instructor will advise the group on what lesson they should book next.


-Based on all of this, we expect participants to have between 75-90 minutes on the slope for our 2 hour sessions, and between 45-60 minutes for our 1.5 hour group sessions.

If you cannot, or do not want to, use your gift voucher for the activity it was originally intended for, you can use it against any of our activities. 


This can only be done for the value that the voucher was purchased for, so if it was a voucher purchased during a promotional offer, you will get the amount that was paid off an activity session. 


To use your voucher, add the activity session to your basket. When you get to the review page of the booking, enter your voucher codes. 




If the voucher is valid but is not for the activity that is in your basket, you will receive a warning message asking you if you wish to proceed and telling you how much the voucher will discount off your basket. 




If you click "Redeem voucher", the value will come off your basket total. 







If you do not wish to use your voucher value, just click anywhere outside the box, or go back a step. 


Please Note: Vouchers can only be used once, so if your basket total is less than the amount paid for a voucher, you will lose any remaining credit. If your voucher included 'chips and a drink', the amount paid for this upgrade will be used against your basket total in lieu of the chips and drink element.
