Skiing in London? Yes, it is possible to ski in the heart of London!
Chel-Ski is a ski resort located in Chelsea, which has two indoor ski slopes, working much like treadmills but still inclined to 40 degrees, which can make you go up to 30km/h.
All surrounded by a landscape of Mont Blanc! Almost as if you were in the mountains … Well, even if we are honest, it is not the same effect as if you were on real ski slopes, but for those who want to learn to ski or even improve their levels, it is the right plan! Courses are available for kids (from 5 years) and older, and you will be surrounded by professionals. And if you prefer the multi-sport, it is possible to privatize the tracks for groups and parties!
And if you plan to go skiing, but you do not have the equipment and a small budget, no panic because in London, Decathlon also exists in the neighborhoods of Surrey Quays, Wandsworth, Croydon and Lakeside! And for bigger budgets, you’ll find High Street Kensington at Ellis Brigham Moutain Sports, Columbia Sportswear and Snow + Rock!
Eat a raclette or a fondue in London
And yes, it is the opportunity to eat the cheese we miss terribly in England … Especially when comes the period of raclettes and fondues! So yes we can find raclette cheese cut in slices in English food stores, but we must admit that it is not the best option…because finding restaurants of raclette and fondue in London is easy and possible!
