About Weardale Ski Club Ltd.
The club is run by volunteers and has a small core of people who work hard all year round to maintain the facilities we have which include 2 permanent Doppelmayr button tows and a large club hut.
The 2 tow lifts service a large basin with up to 6 signposted runs, countless unsigned runs plus gullies and masses of off-piste options. The site was chosen because it holds the snow longer than surrounding areas due to being north facing and due to its height, 2150 feet (650m).
We ski from November to April whenever snow cover is sufficient. Traditionally we try to open on Wednesdays and Weekends but will open other days if conditions are suitable and tow operators available. Being a voluntary run club we depend on the good will of the team who look after it and are always keen to accept help from members who wish to help out.
Membership is available to anyone but in good years we close membership once we reach our maximum number, which has happened in the last few years. We only accept day members on weekdays, reserving weekends and Bank Holidays for members. Membership also offers great value with discounts at numerous sports retail outlets etc. PLEASE see our website for travel details - the postcode given is for indication purposes only.
