Dry ski slope closes due to snow

A dry ski slope in Wales has been forced to close early - due to snow.

Pontypool Ski Centre has a 230-metre main slope, a beginners' area and a ski lift, but Torfaen Council chiefs announced that the facility, usually open until 9pm, was to close at 6pm.

Bosses decided that treacherous driving conditions for customers and staff as well as access for emergency services meant it would be too risky to stay open late.

The decision came as the Met Office issued a fresh snow warning for Wales.
