Changes at Llangrannog Ski Slope

August 9, 2018

Exciting things are happening at Llangrannog Ski Centre. Having obtained a grant through Sport Wales, we had a chat with centre manager Chris Welch to find out all about the new freestyle area that's under construction and what we can expect from the centre in the future.

"It's a very exciting time here at Llangrannog Ski Centre. As you know we have obtained  grant funding through Sport Wales for the amount of £25,000. This will go towards funding our new freestyle and nursery slope area.

The freestyle area will be 100m in length, using a foam membrane and Playgrass ski carpet. The two materials combined, gives you a very forgiving surface, ideal when learning new tricks and spins. The new freestyle area will boast a permanent kicker, table top, Q-Pipe, and movable boxes and rails. Future plans is to obtain an air bag to coincide with the kicker. The old part of the counter slope will now be our new and improved nursery area, again using the forgiving Playgrass ski carpet as the surface… perfect for beginners.

The old part of the slope also benefits from this exciting project. We will be filling in the void at the top of the slope, between then old slope and the new. This will take the top section of the slope, from four matts wide, to eight matts wide, making it the same width all the way up the slope. This part of the slope will see 120 new Dendix matts put down, matching the skiing surface on the rest of the old slope. We hope to have the slope running for this coming season.

We look forward to catering for ‘Grom’ camps, competitions, slopestyle nights, and a with the accommodation facilities already here at the Urdd Centre, a fantastic training venue for Snowsport Wales"

We look forward to the future of freestyle at the slope and recommend you get down there to check it out yourself.
