Welcome to Weardale Ski Club

Weardale Ski Club is a friendly club offering skiing / snowboarding, when conditions are favourable, in the North of England on REAL SNOW. Historically this has been between 5 and 45 days in a season.

A season's pass costs just £48 for an adult season ticket and allows you to ski any day that we are open.

Please note: sorry to say we don't do boot / ski / snowboard hire or lessons, and the slopes are not suited to beginners. Better to get a lesson at Silksworth Ski Slope and hire from there as well if you don't have skis / snowboard.

We are situated 30 miles west of Durham and offer the longest lift served ski run in England. 2 permanent Doppelmayr button tows transport skiers 787m F1

to the summit at 2150 feet (650m) where you are greeted by a vast North facing bowl offering unlimited terrain, with 6 or 7 regular routes and up to 34 routes that include several natural snow parks.

We also have a large heated club lodge which is ideal for having your packed lunch.

The tows are run by volunteers and being a not for profit club, we depend on the good will of the team who look after the slope and its equipment. If you'd like to get involved, do get in touch.

Snow can come anytime between November and April. We aim to open at the weekend and Wednesday, but if the snow cover is good, we open on other days too when we have volunteers available.

We send out an email bulletin from time to time. If you'd like to be added to our mailing list, please contact
