Indoor Skiing in London?–Dukes Meadows in Chiswick

The first UK Skiplex Ski Centre has opened at the Dukes Meadows Tennis and Golf Academy in Chiswick. The ski slope simulator features a smooth, continuous track-  a large white treadmill about the size of a squash court allowing up to four people to ski or snowboard at any one time. The track is operated by a handheld remote controlled device which can speed up or slow down the track and increase or reduce the elevation. As a result, the centre can accommodate beginners at a low elevation and slow track speed all the way to experts at a steep elevation and fast track speed.  The system has been around in Europe for some time but has only just come to the UK.
