Freestyle at Kidsgrove In 2014 North Staffs Ski Club opened its dedicated freestyle slope. It is a permanent facility, with fixed features, that is open to club members who have a helmet with the sticker that says they are approved users. It is open when the slope is open for general recreational skiing. On alternate Friday evenings we are open for “Freestyle Friday” sessions. Come along and join the fun.
