Bracknell Ski and Snowboard Centre
Bracknell Ski Centre is the longest artificial slope in the South East and one in a chain of five nationwide artificial slopes run by John Nike Leisure. It is located just 45 minutes from London surrounded by the M3, M4 and M25
All John Nike slopes use its own patented artificial surface called permasnow which was the first freestyle-friendly (closed carpet) surface in the country. Unlike other artificial surfaces it does not need a sprinkler system.
Bracknell has always had a strong freestyle scene which is now enthusiastically run by Southern Freestyle Club welcoming all snowboarders and skiers to get involved. They have a vast inventory of rails, boxes and gas pipes and offer expert coaching to guide you from beginner through to expert.
It is one of the only artificial slopes in the country to have a chairlift (which definitely enhances the experience) and is home to the legendary Crest Run toboggan track which is definitely worth a look.
Additionally, Bracknell is a very popular skating venue with an Olympic-sized Ice Rink and National Ice Hockey team. It also has a Peak Fitness Gym and Snooker Hall with 5 match tables.
