Active NAtion


Otherwise known as Ringo’s, Donutting is by far the most popular and most entertaining activity here at Alpine Snowsports, Southampton! Take to the slops in your very own rubber ring and prepare for the ride of your life. Climb to the top of our 85* metre middle slope, get in position for the perfect descent and brace yourself for a wild ride to the bottom.

Gather some friends or come along as a family and have the most BRILLIANT time together – We guarantee it will be smiles all round and some amazing memories made. 


Our 1 hour Donutting sessions are the perfect way to entertain both the Adult’s and the Children. With no experience needed and just the attitude to have fun, everyone can enjoy Donutting!

Perfect for parties or a weekend spent outdoors – Everyone is welcome… as long as you’re over 6 years old. 


Something for the little ones now, Sledging. Located on our Junior Slope, Sledging offers the same thrill but for younger children between the age of 3-8 years. 

Not wanting to leave anyone out – The Sledging and Donutting slopes are right next to each other. So if you have a family of differing age ranges, we’ve got your covered!
