What is it?
For pure pleasure, there’s hardly a better feeling than hurtling down a scenic mountain with crisp fresh air in your lungs, using your skill and balance to stay upright. Skiing really is a sensory workout, and a hugely popular sport that takes place not only on snow but here in the UK on artificial surfaces, and more recently indoor artificial snow slopes.
Why is it good for me?
- Develops co-ordination and balance
- Aerobic and cardiovascular workouts
- Develops strength and agility
- Encourages a wider awareness of the external environmen
How much does it cost?
Through GO SKI GO BOARD and at most snowdomes and outdoor ski slopes across the country; all equipment, instruction, slope passes and winter clothing (where needed) are included within the price. Slope entry and taster lessons typically start from £5, with a beginner’s lesson and 6 hours of instruction starting from £30.
Skiing abroad obviously has increased costs, and buying your own equipment can be pricey, but a beginner can hire or borrow equipment to check out whether it’s the sport for them. Once tried, you’ll be hooked!
What equipment do I need?
- Ski boots
