About Us


Tyneside Loipers is the northeast’s cross country ski club. Founded in 1982 and covering mainly Northumberland, Durham and Tyne and Wear, we now have over 50 members active in all forms of nordic (freeheel) skiing.  Some of us even ski in the summer months using roller skis.

The club has a stock of metal-edged touring skis which can be used by members. New members area always welcome and will be offered help and advice about where to ski.

Good conditions for skiing in the NE no longer happen every year but there are usually a few days when skiing is possible in the N Pennines or the Cheviots or a little further away in the Lake District. The club also organise foreign holidays or short breaks abroad. Typical trips include telemark skiing in the French Alps, track-skiing and nordic-touring in Norway and telemark touring in the Silvretta Alps of Austria and Switzerland.
