Here in good old England we're not exactly blessed with the best weather for anything. You'd think that with our average temperatures we might get some good snow, but even that is rare (and when it does arrive all hell breaks loose). But we don't even need the slightest dusting of the white stuff to have fun with today's Groupon. For just £29 instead of the usual £89 you can get three Ski or Snowboarding lessons on a fabulous and artificial slope. If you have never been before there is no need to worry, you will be in the hands of a professional instructor who will teach you everything you need to know, and have you flying like Eddie the Eagle in no time at all.
Swadlincote Ski Centre is located in the heart of The National Forest and is just a 30 minute drive from Derby, Nottingham and Leicester. It is equipped with an artificial slope covered in the patented Perma-snow surface that feels and reacts just like the real stuff. The centre also has a fully licensed bar and restaurant so after your session on the slope you can relax and enjoy the picturesque views. You might have thought taking up a snow sport would be uber expensive - what with the travel to a remote mountain in the Swiss Alps. However, with today's Groupon and a fantastic 67% there is no need to rob a Swiss bank!
