UK Snowsports Centres

Of course, nothing is ever going to compare to snowboarding on a real mountain on real snow, but unfortunately not many of us actually have this luxury on our doorstep all year round. So during our time off the hill, whether it’s between holidays or winter seasons we all need to clip in and scratch that itch every now and again.

Over the last 10 years an impressive number of indoor and outdoor ski facilities have opened in the UK, giving us the opportunity to try skiing or snowboarding for the first time, improve our freestyle skills or even begin BASI training to become an instructor.

Stretching from southern parts of England right up to Scotland most of us don’t need to travel too far to get our snowboarding fix.
