“Sad loss to Sheffield”
Reviewed 26 March 2013 via mobile

I'm really sorry the ski village burned down. My kids learned to ski here and loved having parties here, tobogganing, tubing, quad bike riding and more recently, bowling. I was always aware that it seemed to be teetering on financial collapse, a wildness that I quite liked. They seemed to get enough right that you turned a blind eye to the ski village's rough and ready imperfections. It seemed to have great initiatives that didn't always follow through... I remember picking up litter for an hour during my kids' ski lesson, debris left behind from the previous night's party. I didnt mind as you could see the staff were busy and the place had a charm... It was in a lovely aspect with great views... I hope out of the ashes something good comes again of the Sheffield Ski Village... I was devastated to hear it got burned.

“It's shut up shop”
Reviewed 6 January 2013

It's not open as at Jan 2013!!!! This is according to the owner who was interviewed on Radio Sheff. It had arson damage and is no longer viable.

“Over hyped”
Reviewed 18 November 2012

Too few people serving at the bar means long queues of mainly disgruntled people. Bar prices are high, given the low choice of real beers. Food was average, edible, but standard pub grub in choice.

“Sadly due to vandalism it is closed”
Reviewed 12 October 2012

It used to be good because although a bit dated it was a handy place to ski. Now unfortunately after a fire and then repeated vandalism/theft it is not usable so the nearest places are Castleford and Manchester.
