Cardiff Ski & Snowboard Centre


Located in Fairwater Park, only ten minutes from Cardiff City Centre, Cardiff Ski and Snowboard Centre was built in 1969 by Cardiff City Council. The original slope measured 90 metres and was the one of the first dry slopes in Great Britain. In 1984 the Centre went through significant changes as the management of the slope was taken over by the governing body of snow sports in Wales- Snowsport Cymru Wales. The Centre not only gained a new management but also added 10 metres to its length and is currently a 100 metre long slope. Cardiff Ski and Snowboard Centre relies strongly on volunteers along with the fundamental full time members of staff. All of the instructors are experienced, nationally qualified, CRB checked, first aid certified and most importantly enthusiastic characters with a love of the sport. Our main area of expertise is introducing people to snow sports and sharing our passion for skiing and snowboarding. We provide activities for all levels and ages in individual, group and recreational settings. We run over 11,000 sessions a year and we provide special deals for schools and businesses. Instructor courses, school events and competitions are run at our slope throughout the year. We also have very successful junior ski school on Saturdays and Sundays.


Ever wondered what it’s like to put all the gear on and ski on or off piste, well now you can here at the Cardiff Ski & Snowboard Centre. I was really impressed at the set up here and the level of expertise on offer. Based in a leafy suburb of Cardiff, this attraction is totally different to what Cardiff generally has to offer. With state of the art equipment and knowledgeable staff, CSSC was one of the first of the original slopes here in the United Kingdom, built in the late 60’s, the centre is now being part of the Welsh governing body of all snow sports, so your in really good hands here. Now with the addition of Snowboarding to the mix, you can learn all of the skills that come along with this sport and who knows, maybe you could one day be a snow sport champion!
