We are fully open, so if you would like to book skiing, snowboarding or donutting, please give us a call, or send us a booking enquiry.
Boris’s ‘Rule of Six’ will not fundamentally affect this, as it applies primarily to private social groups, and not organised groups in a public setting, conducted in a Covid-safe manner. The main changes we have had to make to our procedures to remain Covid-safe are outlined below.
We have made some modifications to our private bookings in order to keep you (and us) safe –
- We have a side gate, so donutters will only need to come into the building to use the toilet facilities.
- There is a half hour gap between bookings so that there is no overlap of people, and we can clean surfaces.
- Maximum number allowed is 12, so as much social distancing as possible can be maintained. From Monday 14th all the children will need to be in the same school bubble with the exception of siblings of the Birthday child.
- Parents of party guests will not be permitted to stay, unless they form part of the 12; the Birthday child’s parents are in addition to the allowed 12 people.
- Sadly there is no option to picnic, as we don’t have the space to make this work in a socially distanced way. The best we can allow is 10 minutes to light candles, extinguish them somehow (!), and cut a cake.
- There will be a member of staff supervising the party, but they will need to keep their distance, so the children will have to push their own donuts over the edge.
Public Sessions will only be available on Saturdays and Sundays at 9.30am. We will be restricting the maximum number in a session to 10, and social distancing will need to be observed with other donutters who are not in your social bubble.
Private lessons are available 7 days a week; social distancing will be maintained if participants are not all part of the same social bubble.
Beginner’s ski courses will have a reduced maximum number of 8 so that social distance can be maintained; dates for this Winter’s adult courses are here and the Junior courses are here. There is no change to snowboard courses, and the dates for the coming season are here.
Social distancing within the building while kitting up will be maintained on the 1m+ principle, so you will be expected to bring, and wear, a mask indoors. Once outside maintaining social distance will be easier, but due to the more hands on nature of snowboard instruction, snowboarders may sometimes be asked to wear masks outside as well.
Only the person/people participating in the lesson should be present, unless it is one adult accompanying and transporting under 16’s.
This is a new situation for everyone, and as the situation evolves, there will inevitably be changes to the way we do things, so please bear with us.
