A 300 meter, dry Ski Slope and Toboggan Run is situated in Happy Valley since 1986. 'Ski Llandudno' is not only popular with amateur enthusiasts but is of national importance to the sport, as the Artificial Ski Championships are held here each year.
Hiking on the Orme
There are numerous trails - nature and historical trails to enjoy. We picked up the trail to the summit and around the great Orme starting from the gardens of Happy Valley. The trail is about 6 miles long and takes about 2-3 hours - but thats without many photo stops and snack stops of course ;-))
The trails are well signposted, the paths easy to follow - it would be very difficult to get lost up here!
Out for a quick blast on the piste
The 'Happy valley' at the foot of the Great Orme mountain sprouted a number of facilities in the 1980's to give the adrenneline junkies a bit of a fix.
There is a 300-meter artificial ski & snowboard slope, where the British championships are held every year. The 'Swiss chalet' makes the setting at least semi-authentic.
The 750-meter toboggan track look like a lot of fun. Common in europe, but unusual in the UK the metalled tube allows you to 'pilot' your own cart down the run. Those aged between 4 and 7 may travel with an adult and those aged 8 or over get their own cart. At less than a fiver for 2 runs, this looks like a bargain. It unfortunately was closed the last time I was there, but I will give you a full in-depth rundown of by bumps, scratches and broken bones when I get to have a go.
