Getting Out Of The Office – Skiing In The UK – All Year Round (Mostly!)

Christmas has come and gone, spring hasn’t yet sprung and you may be feeling in need of a bit of a break from the office. If you fancy skiing but don’t fancy the cost of flying to Europe then why not stay closer to home.

Scotland may have the only outdoor ski centres in the UK, but that doesn’t mean there’s no action south of the border. In fact, there are some real iconic centres dotted throughout the UK – so whatever the weather, get your boots and goggles on and have a blast! Who needs the Alps?!
