Chel-Ski is London’s newest and largest indoor ski centre, which opened in December 2015. Located in the heart of Chelsea, we offer an engaging environment where customers of all ages and abilities can take to the slopes.

Using BASI approved technology, Chel-Ski is ideal for a wide range of needs including:

· learning the basics and building stamina
· improving existing skills and maintaining fitness
· racing practice (our instructor team includes a qualified race coach)
· rehabilitation after injury

Endless descent on revolving slopes that are adjustable in terms of angle and speed and less forgiving than snow, together with a mirror that allows customers to watch themselves ski and analyse their technique, is a winning combination for getting ready to head out to ski resorts.

Off the slopes, our fantastic Alpine Café offers somewhere to relax and enjoy some après-ski, with delicious food – including traditional ski fare – and drinks on offer.

In addition to individual bookings, Chel-Ski is also available to hire for family slope time and group bookings (e.g. school clubs). Cool design aesthetics also make Chel-Ski the perfect venue for ski themed private parties and corporate networking and teambuilding events.
