Take to the dry slopes
Britain's Chemmy Alcott
Britain's Chemmy Alcott entered many dry ski slope competitions
There are 77 real snow and artificial ski slopes in Great Britain.

The majority of ski slopes in Great Britain are dry ones which use a matting material devised in the 1960s made up of small brushes called Dendix.

They are becoming less popular because of the indoor real-snow zones but are still handy when it comes to learning the basics and brushing up on your ski skills before a holiday.

Dry slopes are great value for money and they are easily accessible in most places around the UK.

Find the closest one to you below.
