Ski-Allenheads provides facilities to ski and snowboard - when it snows - in the beautiful North Pennine countryside.
The Club is based on the edge of the village of Allenheads in the North East of England and takes advantage of the Pen-Alpine weather to make the most possible use of every inch of snow which falls on the local hills.
The Club offers a friendly atmosphere and welcomes all abilities of skier and snowboarder.
It is especially good for families and provides an excellent opportunity to get the kids started on the snow.
And, perhaps most of all, absolutely no queues
It is preferable if you supply your own skis, snowboards etc, although we do have a selection of adults & children’s skis & boots which can be borrowed as long as you’re prepared to set them yourself. A small donation for their use is welcomed.

Whenever there is snow, we try to run the tows 7 days a week. However it is always worth checking the latest news on the answer machine as we are dependent on volunteers being available to run the tows.
None available at Allenheads nor locally, although we do have some skis & boots which can be borrowed.
Annual fees for membership of the club – reduced rate for joining before 1st December. Subsequent use of slopes & tows is free. For current rates, see the Club's website.
