Mother Natures Irony
Dry Ski Slope Closed Due to Snowfall
An artificial surface or ‘dry’ ski slope was closed on Friday 15 December due to snowfall.

Telford Snowboard & Ski Centre in England closed its slope after snow that had fallen on it turned in to icy blocks.

An announcement online by the local council which runs the slope led to some derisive comes to which a council spokesperson responded,

“We do appreciate the irony but sometimes conditions are just against you. Ice skates might be more useful than skis."

Patrick Thorne, also known as the Snow Hunter, is an industry expert in all technical developments in snow sports. In addition to his work Patrick is also father and knows the importance and fun of kids on snow.
