UK skiing in the summer- you don’t need snow for these ski breaks!
You don’t need to splash out on expensive flights to Sweden for a ski break! There are many places you can go to get your skiing fix, in the middle of summer too. And the prices for a day out on a UK ski slope won’t break the bank as much as jetting off to the Alps will. So dig out those hats and gloves, and make your way to one of the following UK Ski Slopes. Here are a few you’re guaranteed to love.
The Snow Centre in Hemel Hampstead embraces both skiers and snowboarders of every level of ability with welcoming arms! Whether you’re a snowboarding or skiing novice or a well-trained pro, you’ll find services, facilities and instructors to suit your level. You can go on freely, or sign up for lessons (which are very reasonably priced). With a 150 seat Cafebar there’s also a chance to sit back and relax too! Perhaps you want to watch everyone else fall on their bums, after you’ve tired yourself out!
