The best ski centres in and around Surrey
Living in London can make it difficult to just up and head to the mountains whenever then snow notion takes you. Not to mention that recent fluctuating temperatures and odd weather patterns might mean that there will either not be much snow once you arrive or so much snow that you won’t be able leave for a couple of days (not a bad thing in my opinion).
Luckily there are numerous ways to get your ski or snowboard fix in and around the Surrey area meaning that you can plan to get out and about regardless of the weather and without a long car drive up north or hopping across the channel:
Sandown Ski Centre
