We were a family of 6 aged from 73 to 5. We all had an absolutely fabulous magical and very active time. The clothing we were given was excellent and advice about what inner layers to bring with us meant we were able to stay warm despite temperatures going down to minus 18. Staff were very accessible, helpful and honest. It was all very relaxed with no commercial pressures and seemed very natural enabling us to have lots of fun taking part in snow activities we had never done before.
