Indoor skiing on revolving slopes in the UK

Newsroom Featured Year-round Skiing Indoor skiing on revolving slopes in the UK

Perhaps you have tried indoor skiing on artificial snow and outdoor skiing on dry ski slopes, but have you ever tried skiing on a revolving slope?

Indoor skiing on revolving slopes

The revolving ski slope is continuously moving, similar to a giant treadmill. Some skiers find the revolving slope easier to use and quicker to progress onto the next level. The big benefits of this new type of indoor skiing slope is there is no need for artificial snow or ski lifts.

The revolving ski slope fits the skier’s skill level. The slope can be adapted to suit the requirement of the skier, including the gradient of the slope and the speed at which it runs. You will have the slope all to yourself unless you choose to bring a buddy along. Revolving ski slopes usually have a giant mirror in front of you so you can see how you need to improve.

A spokesperson from Skieasy in London says, “The surface we use is like a thick astro turf. It is more forgiving and softer than traditional outdoor artificial slopes but less forgiving than snow. This means the techniques you master on the Skieasy slope will be of a high level and you should find it easier when you transfer these techniques onto real snow. All the techniques taught by our instructors are the same as you would learn from instructors in a ski resort, indoor dome or on a dry slope.”

Ski lessons and ski gear

The revolving ski slope is suitable for all levels of skier. Whether you want to get fit for your ski holiday or this is your first time ever on skis, there are ski lessons to suit all abilities. All ski lessons include full instruction with qualified snow sports instructors.

The price of a lesson includes ski gear hire, but some skiers opt to bring their own boots. Also, you must wear long sleeves and trousers. The environment is not cold (as it would be in an indoor snow centre), so no need to layer up, just focus on comfort and moving freely.

Skieasy says, “Any sensible clothing suitable for sport is fine but we do put water on the slope so you may get a bit damp! We advise you wear a long-sleeved lightweight top and loose fitting trousers (tracksuit bottoms are ideal) to protect elbows and knees from abrasion. Smooth lightweight socks are the best option for your feet to fit ski boots as snugly as possible. We’d recommend you bring a jumper with you and during colder months you may wish to wear warmer clothes.”
