Ski Rossendale Social Enterprise - About
Ski Rossendale Social Enterprise - That's us!
Ski Rossendale Ltd was formed by snowsports instructors Dave Fuller, Karon Driver and Sue and Steve Foulkes with the intention of acquiring the lease from Rossendale council to run and develop Ski Rossendale. We were fortunate enough to have been successful and are now developing Ski Rossendale as a facility where all people can come together to have fun, whilst learning to Ski and Board. It has long been an iconic leisure facility in Rossendale and we aim to once again put Ski Rossendale on the map as a 'must Visit' attraction within the North West of England.
What Can You Do Here?
Snowboarding and Skiing
Learning to Snowboard or Ski is a fun experience and our friendly instructors will soon have you sliding. From taster lessons to advanced coaching, we can cater for individuals, families, friends, schools and groups wanting to have some fun, or those preparing themselves for a Winter holiday. Most beginners require a number lessons to reach the minimum standard to practice on our slopes. This also provides a head start before any Winter holiday as you will get far more enjoyment if you've got the basic skills. Taking lessons is also a great way to get in shape before your trip.
Freestyle is an increasingly popular part of the ski and snowboard industry and Ski Rossendale has always been a centre which people travel to from all over to hit the jumps. These features are perfect for learning new tricks and progressing abilities on a personal level. A large Fun Park with permanent kickers and rail, permanent 'bumps' on the main slope come and try them out.
We offer a range of board and ski lessons for all ages from beginner to advanced. There are various options for learning or developing your skills. Start with a one off 'Taster' session, then book a course appropriate to your level. Children can be enrolled in our popular Saturday morning 'Kids Club'. Adults who want to progress further, may enrol in one of our friendly 'clubs and groups'. You may decide to take a 'Private' lesson tailored to your needs or benefit from our 'Coaching' sessions. Discuss your options with our booking office.
Tubes are round inflatable doughnuts with smooth plastic bases to enable them to slide down the slope. Its a popular party and group activity which takes place on either the nursery slopes or even on the huge quarter pipe!
Make your party a memorable one - it's all about fun. Combine our exciting outdoor venue with a choice of skiing / boarding / tubing and food. From the moment you arrive at the facility you will be taken care of. We will provide you with equipment, look after your safety, instruct and help you through your chosen activity and ensure you are well looked after.
We are on the 'Shoe Trail' route which goes right past our slope! This is an exciting project that takes inspiration from Rossendale's historical links with the shoe and brick industry. The Shoe Trail directs people from Rawtenstall town centre, through the Rossendale Valley and up to the Halo Panopticon at Top o' Slate using giant footwear designs as way markers.
As a Social Enterprise we positively encourage Volunteers to be part of the our team. We have a wide range of helpers from all walks of society.
