  • You can have all amenities for your class/group within a few steps of the skifield.

  • No queues! Why stand in queues, when you can keep a watchful eye all day, whilst still enjoying yourself?

  • Much cheaper lift passes - why pay large skifield lift pass prices, when for a fraction of the price, you can ride the lifts all day as long as you want with minimum queuing?

  • We are skilled in ski and snowboard instruction and have a qualified ski patrol to enable your students to the safest and the best learning opportunity possible.

  • We can organise ski rental, transport to and from Tukino, and accommodation on the Tukino skifield.

  • We can organise activities to suit your group. These can include formal ski/snowboard instruction, mountaincraft instruction or just fun activities in the snow.
