Where Can I Go Snowboarding in the UK?

England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, and Northern Ireland make up the United Kingdom. England is home to the capital, London, and the ancient Roman spa city of Bath. The country is also famous for its centuries-old universities and Shakespearean plays. There are also several ski resorts in the UK.

Weardale Ski Club

If you're looking for a great place to snowboard in the UK, you should check out Weardale Ski Club. This club is located in Weardale, England, and is run by a passionate group of volunteers. The club has a large ski area, with two Poma lifts and a number of different runs. There are easy and steep runs, and the club works tirelessly to keep the snow fences in place, so you won't have any trouble finding the right slope to snowboard on.

Another World Snowboarding & Ski Centre

Another World Snowboarding & Ski Centre is a family run business, founded by Ralph Smith, a nurseryman and an old-school skier. Ralph built the first outdoor rope tow in England in 1985, and his son Andrew took up snowboarding in the late 80s and expanded the ski area. Together with his son, Alex, the Smiths have created a boardercross course and jump course, which is also used by mountain boarders in the summer.

Snow Factor

For a unique snowboarding experience, head to the Scottish capital and check out Snow Factor, Scotland's only year-round snow sport centre. It has the largest indoor real snow slope in the UK, and is perfect for families. Visitors can enjoy snowboarding lessons, sledging, and even ice climbing on its indoor ice wall.

Yad Moss

Yad Moss is a small, membership-based ski area in the north of England. There are eight blue/red ski runs ranging in length from 600m to 800m. The area is relatively flat and does not have a lot of bumps or grassy surfaces. It is suitable for intermediate and advanced skiers, but not for beginners. It also offers sheltered daylodges, but skiers and snowboarders must bring their own food and drink.

Lecht 2090

Lecht 2090, in the Highlands of Scotland, is the perfect destination for snowboarding enthusiasts from all over the UK. The mountain is accessed by a single tarmac road which can be closed during bad weather. There are a range of accommodation options in the surrounding towns and villages. For example, Tomintoul is seven miles away and Grantown-on-Spey is twenty miles down the valley. In addition to the ski slopes, there are family-friendly facilities at Lecht 2090.


The UK has some fantastic snowboarding destinations. If you're new to snowboarding, you can try your skills at Raise, a mountain resort in the Lake District. Raise has the highest tow in the UK, at 800 metres, and its runs are untouched by human intervention. The resort is open from late December through to April.
