Main Sessions - Dry Slope
Our main location for our evening sessions is the Stoke Ski Centre. Located just 10 minutes from the Uni, we are privileged to have this facility so close to us!
From a beginner slope to a freestyle section with large jumps, rails and ramps this facility can accommodate all types of skiing/snowboarding levels.
The knowledgeable instructors here are great if you are just getting started, but also offer help if you want to learn new tricks!
More information can be found here: http://www.stokeskicentre.co.uk/
Dry slope sessions take place weekly at Stoke Ski Centre 6 - 8 pm.
We also aim to do regular trips to the Chill Factore in Manchester, the UK's longest indoor slope. Great to get that feeling of the snow, without travelling too far!
As a SUSC member, you'll be offered great deals on recreational lift passes, lessons and freestyle events.
