UK ski slopes
The ski area is served by a fast Poma button tow which is unsuitable for inexperienced skiers and snowboarders. Length 600m: Vertical rise 120m: Top Station 725m: Uplift 600 people per hour. Depending on snow cover there are up to eight or so runs, half a mile in length, some are prepared by a piste groomer when conditions are suitable. Extensive snow fences help to trap blowing snow. The width of the skiable area can vary from several metres right up to 500m in some places. Depth of snow is highly variable from several centimetres up to more than a metre depending on conditions. The underlying surface is grass and generally free of stones enabling reasonable, if challenging, skiing at times of thin snow cover. In terms of steepness the runs are mostly graded blue but the variety of terrain and conditions can make these some of the most challenging blue runs anywhere.
