If you are looking for a fun-filled day of exhilarating adventure sports, then look no further than the artificial ski slopes of Llandudno. Located alongside the sapphire waters of the Irish Sea, Llandudno is a beautiful Victorian seaside resort, nestled between two limestone headlands. The artificial ski slope in Llandudno is situated on the Great Orme headland, and offers picturesque views of the sea and valley. The town has an abundance of accommodation, from luxury hotels to smaller bed and breakfast boutiques.
There is no need to go all the way to Europe, if you wish to put on a pair of skis and feel the wind whistle past as you speed down a slope. Tourists living at hotels in Llandudno can try out various winter sports like skiing, snow boarding and ski-blading at the famous Llandudno dry ski slope. Measuring around 280 metres in length (920 feet) the artificial slope in Llandudno has the longest toboggan run in the country. It is covered with a surface made of patented 'perma snow', which feels and behaves just like real snow.
