The Ski Deck in Ferndale
The Ski Deck® in Ferndale has always been at the forefront of the South African skiing industry, the original ski machines being part of the Springbok Ski Club operating in Craighall since the late seventies. Lew Campbell worked for that company for 25 years and took over in 2004 moving the operation to the Ferndale Ski Centre. The present operation has made many changes since then, upgrading the ski teaching technology and operating in its own `little ski village`.
Some of the changes have been upgrading the original dry carpet surfaces on `The Decks` to the new generation wet surfaces; incorporating a 20 m long static ski slope for additional free practice - and now the only training facility in South Africa and the first in the southern hemisphere to be equipped with the world`s first fully computerized ski and snowboard simulator - The Sky Tek® Power Carver.
