Briony Key reports on a wide indoor moving carpet of artificial snowAlways looking for ‘something different’ for your incentive/team building events? How about a ski adventure, without the need to travel to snowy climes?.
Skiplex is a specialist ski centre company with three UK venues - Chiswick, Reading and, new for this season, Basingstoke. They offer plenty for corporate groups to enjoy.
The company can tailor the package to suit a group, with everything from basic lessons to ski sessions, followed by music/entertainment in the après-ski area. You can book a single slope for a lesson, or exclusively hire the whole venue.
And you can forget about the old-style ski centres – this new concept consists of a continuously revolving indoor slope. It’s a wide moving treadmill, more like a carpet than a hard slope. Consequently it’s also a much softer landing!
The sessions are led by qualified instructors offering real-time feedback – and, with a giant mirror at the base of the slope, group members see themselves making progress immediately.
Skiplex Reading has already organised events for Intel, Xact Marketing, Reading 107 and Holiday Inn corporate groups. Skiplex Basingstoke is also part of a larger entertainment venue that includes Airkix Indoor Sky Diving, Brush Boarding and Sim Car Racing.
