John Holmes on Pendle Ski Club Slope

Pendle Ski Club, located deep in the heart of Lancashire, is a family friendly club with a vibrant membership. It's on the south west facing slope where the piste can be found and it is here where I have spent countless hours practicing. The club is entirely managed and run by volunteers and the help and support that I have received over the years has been immense. It's a place that will always be special to me as it has been to my fellow GB team mate Dave Ryding.
