MEMBERS of the public are invited to have a go at skiing as part of a snowsports club's open day later this month.

People will be able to take to the artificial slope at Kendal Snowsports Club (KSC) for free under the expert guidance of club instructors.

“We are inviting anyone who is interested in taking up skiing, or who would like to know more about the club," said Rob Blyth, chairman of the club, situated at Canal Head North, below the castle.

The club, which was formed in 1984, is a registered charity and is run by a team of volunteers.

KSC now offers adaptive skiing, which enables people with disabilities to take part in snowsport activities courtesy of adapted equipment and specialised coaching.

“As well as a wide range of snowsports activities, the club offers social events and special events throughout the year,” said KSC instructor Tracy Oncal.

“We are a community where everyone is welcome, with a great vibe in a fun, friendly, environment for outdoor fitness.”

Those wishing to take part in the open day should turn up to the club between 10am and 3pm on Saturday, October 23.
