Urban Ski Singapore

Urban Ski Singapore

Developing your child's motor skills is important, and skiing is one of the best ways to put said skills to the test - but you don’t have to travel to a wintry country to do that. Instead, make a trip down to Urban Ski Singapore, the first indoor ski slopes in town. The 'slopes' here can be inclined up to 20º and adjusted to different speeds depending on your skill level. They move beneath your feet, and allow you to ski or snowboard down a seemingly endless mountainside – think treadmill, but with skis. And don’t worry if you’ve never tried anything like this before. The 'snow' is made of nylon tufts that are soft and perfectly safe should anyone take a tumble. Ski and snow boots are provided, so all you need to bring is the family.
