There aren’t too many places in the UK where you can go skiing. Wherever you go you are unlikely to ski all the year round. Instead ski resorts open at specific times each year, allowing people to come and visit and try out their slopes when the fresh snow has fallen.
This can be a problem when you want to perfect your skills during the off-season. Unless, that is, you decide to look for a local dry ski slope you can use. These are designed to provide an all-weather surface that can be used in lieu of snow. They’re not quite the same but you might be surprised at how similar they are in terms of being able to ski down them.
How safe are dry ski slopes?
They are actually very safe indeed. You might find it takes a short while to get used to them, but for the most part the slopes themselves – and the centres where you will find them – are very safe. They must of course adhere to all the relevant health and safety laws that would come into force for such businesses.
As such, instances where dry ski slope compensation is issued to those who have been hurt at such locations are rare. It’s possible to take a tumble on the slope of course, but for the most part this will be par for the course in terms of learning how to ski. It is only if a fault is found with the slope itself that the potential for compensation comes into force.
