Tallington Lakes fits new surface on outdoor dry ski slope
Tallington Lakes has fitted a new surface to its 120m dry ski slope for the first time in 35 years.
The Proslope is the closest artificial surface that mimics snow-like conditions and thanks to its matting and construction, which includes a shock absorption layer, the slopes can be enjoyed safely by everyone from beginners to freestyle skiers and snowboarders.
Chas Shrosbree, manager of Tallington Lakes, said: "Our outdoor dry slope offers a chance for those that want to try something a bit different this winter to get out there to give it a go, or challenge advanced freestyle and racing skiers who want a responsive, fast slope that offers a huge edge grip to hone their skills.
"Now is the best time to learn to ski and snowboard in style. Skiing and snowboarding provide an exhilarating way to exercise during the colder months, with private or group lessons available."
Proslope is backed by Team GB's snowboarding Olympian Jamie Nicholls and Eddie 'the Eagle'.
Tallington Lakes has British Association of Snowsports Instructors and Snowsports England instructors to coach and guide anyone new to skiing and snowboarding and a Pro Shop, located just off the dry slope.
The opening of the new surface will bring with it a host of organised racing, freestyle competitions, ski touring classes, as well as private and group ski or snowboard lessons, as well as day courses and the Junior Snow School.
