24 Hour Ski-athon
The Ski Centre in Sandyford is calling on all ski enthusiasts to take part in their annual skiathon in aid of the Lauralynn foundation. This event will run for 24 hours with 50 skiers rotating on and off the slopes from Friday 6th May at 6pm right through to Saturday 7th May at 6pm.
This is a challenge that will push your mental and physical strength to the limit while testing your skills on the slopes! However you’ll be in good hands! Last year saw the Ski Centre break a Guinness World Record with the team skiing over 300km on a continuous run over a 24-hour period.
And if you’re worried about your fitness and skill level, the Ski Centre is offering participants the opportunity to brush up on their technique and conditioning with four lessons for the reduced price of €100 prior to the event (this includes entry to the skiathon). Not only will you be as fit as a fiddle you will also look like a pro should you decide to hit the slopes next winter!
The Ski Centre is Ireland’s only indoor skiing operation. It offers continuous skiing/riding on a rolling conveyor-belt-style apparatus. All of the instructors hold qualifications from world recognised licensing bodies.
