Landgraaf is arguably one of the best indoor slopes in Europe. It provides a complete package that cannot be beaten. You'll be staying on site in a wonderful 4 star hotel. It's so easy to relax and recharge when you have a comfortable room just a couple of minutes away. We chose a catered food option that allows you to eat and drink all you want. You just have to buy your beers. In essence you can go to Landgraaf without a penny in your pocket as all the essentials are covered.
In terms of the slope it cannot be bettered. That's why it's chosen as a training facility for many international ski and snowboard teams. There are two main pistes 2.5x longer than anything in the UK. Plus they're at a pitch which is ideal for snowboarders. Nice and mellow allowing for a great fast blast or a slow flatland fun session. Each slope also has a poma and a 6 man chairlift allowing for some much needed recovery time.
The principle reason we love Landgraaf so much is the snow park. It's nestled between the two main pistes and it's permanent. It is often netted off and serviced by its own poma. The park is around the size of a main piste in the UK. It contains a vast arrange of kickers, rails and boxes. Although beginners can hit some of the features in the park, it would be a great playground for someone looking to progress their kicker skills and raise their confidence on basic side hits and boxes.
The slope is open 9am - 11pm so there is plenty of opportunities to ride. Plus with there being so many riding opportunities it never compares to the UK slopes in terms of how busy it gets. Also it is only a few hours away from Calais, so its super easy to get to. That's why it's our ideal bookend to our winter.
