It's not too shabby being a snowsports club in the UK and having a dry slope a little over a mile from one of your campuses. 

Stoke Ski Centre offers SUSC members excellent rates on recreational open skiing/snowboarding and a variety of lessons, suitable for absolute beginners right up to experienced freestylers.

The coaches are sound and very knowledgeable.

Nevisport was founded in 1970 in Fort William, by two rock climbers, lifelong friends and mountaineering partners who had become dissatisfied with the poor selection of climbing equipment found in existing UK stores. In addition to selling climbing gear, they added a selection of camping equipment to the first store in hopes of making a living from the hobby that had turned into a viable business.
