From Our Editors

Skiplex is a different kind of dry slope with softer nylon surfaces and a fully-adjustable slope. Simulator training means that learners can really focus on specific techniques by adjusting the gradient and speed of the slopes. Furthermore, time is saved, as there is no need for lifts and escalators, and 'runs' can last up to 15 minutes. With centres in Chiswick, Basingstoke and Reading, the centres offer an efficient way to learn to ski or board. There's a viewing gallery for visitors and a mirror so that skiiers and snowboarders can see for themselves how they are getting on.

When buying the groupon voucher I was not made aware of the strict booking policy (can only book at peak times 3 days before, peak times being any evening and weekend) working full time this made booking for me and my boyfriend at the same time impossible. Every time I phone there was not 2 spaces at the same time! Wasted a lot of time calling trying to book and no spaces. When discovering this and asking for a refund I was told I couldn't have one. Ended up giving voucher away just so it could be used, so lost out on money and the ski practice!

Don't wear anything too warm , its hot in there! Be prepared for it feeling about odd at first as it takes time to get used to the feel of it.

Great fun and challenging too! Good way to tone up for the slopes and hone your technique. Would definitely recommend trying Skiplex.

Andrew is a great instructor. He was great with my two kids and made it really fun for them to learn skiing. They love to go for more lessons!

The manager Shelly is absolutely fantastic. She made my lesson really enjoyable & has been a real star with booking further lessons for myself & my family. Thank you

I visited the Skiplex at Basingstoke on Sunday with my family who are all novice skiers - indeed this was the first time any of us (2 adults + 3 kids) had put on skis. We were met by a very young lad who seemed to be lacking in confidence and/or inexperienced to be able to adequately facilitate the session. Indeed, we had little instruction at all. At one point, my wife actually fell and shot off the moving slope and only stopped when her head and shoulder hit the window. Would a more experienced instructor have stopped the moving slope sooner? This is in stark contrast to the experience my friends had at the same Skiplex recently. Only last evening they told us of a woman instructor who was great with their kids (who haven’t skied before either) providing plenty of instruction when they made a recent visit. In summary, I hope the session myself and family had was not representative of the general Skiplex experience and respectfully suggest that reparation for our disappointing session is warranted.

Instructor was very good, didn't laugh when we fell over due to lack of techniwue and was very encouraging

The support we had from the instructor the first time was much, much better than when we used the groupon voucher. Unfortunately the experience was not of the same standard as previously as we were babysat this time rather than instructed. Disappointing, but still fun.
