Sheffield (England) Reviews
Newest Review: ... standard riding and the other takes you through the freestyle features. Surfaces are made of both Snowflex and Dendex (think astroturf only white) SSV has some great instructors and all the staff are friendly and helpful. Loads of really great boarders and skiers train regularly. Personally I don't think that dry slopes can compare with real snow. I find that when I'm teaching students on snow, they can reach twice the standard in half the time as they can on dry slope. I've been told it's better for skiing than it is for snowboarding, but as I don't really ski too any high enough standard to tell, I won't comment. I can say that I find ... more

I currently work at Sheffield Ski Village, but it looks like another member of staff beat me to it here! I've spent a lot of time riding and training in loads of resorts / facilities. As dry slopes go, SSV isn't bad. There are plenty of facilities, on and off the slope including plenty of freestyle features (they have their very own airbag! Not something you see very often.) The main slope is split into two. One is more for standard riding and the other takes you through the freestyle features. Surfaces are made of both Snowflex and Dendex (think astroturf only white) SSV has some great instructors and all the staff are friendly and helpful. Loads ... Read the complete review

I work at Sheffield Ski Village and I love it to pieces (but don’t think that that makes my opinion biased because I am going to tell you all the problems with it aswell). I think it has to be the best artificial slope in this country. I have always lived in Sheffield (except for my time at university) and I have been skiing for about 9 years. My first ever lesson was taken at Sheffield Ski Village and I thought it was absolutely brilliant back then. Over the past year, however, the slope has undergone some major improvements making it one of the most respected ski slopes in the country (from both a skier and a boarder point of view). The slope ... Read the complete review

This is the coolest and the best by far dry ski slope, or even artificially made slope in Britain. It's better than the Snowdome in Tamworth, but unfortunately doesn?t get as much hype. SNOWPLEX: I was amazed when I stood at the bottom of this recently upgraded slope. They have just recently changed the material of the right-hand side slope. Instead of the usual that most people are used to (the matting with the regular arrangement of diagonal holes, backed with metal) they now have 'snowplex', I know it as. This has no regular lattice of holes; instead it is full completely with the white stuff. It is up to 12 inches thick in certain ... Read the complete review
