Welcome to the North of England Snowsports Association website.

Please check back soon for further information and updates!


The Northeast has two artificial slope snowsport centres and a number of clubs operating outdoor snow slopes. Learn more about our regional facilities here.

The region’s main year-round outdoor Alpine facility is at Silksworth Ski Centre, Sunderland.

In 2015 the Silksworth Ski Centre management was taken over, from the local authority, as part of a joint partnership arrangement. NESA, with the help of the SSE development team, has been able to support the new company, SLM Everyone Active, during the transition period, helping the region and the new management develop a snowsports partnership.
