Snowboarding in Llandudno

As you can see from the picture, the artificial ski slope at Llandudno is much more picturesque than our local at Bracknell.

The slope, though, still uses Dendix (the unpopular stiff brush style) instead of Permasnow (John Nike's "Velcro" matting). I'd never snowboarded on Dendix before and it was pretty weird, especially when you travelled over the join between two large sheets which felt like yards of tiny speedbumps. It was difficult to see where you were going with your eyeballs bouncing up and down!

Also not visible is the wildlife that lives on the slopes. The grid of brushes meant that a whole range of debris collected on the slope - soil, grass, sheep and rabbit droppings - which gave you an incentive not to fall over.
