When you book some time on the ski slopes at an indoor skiing centre in the UK the skis, snowboards, ski poles, ski boots, ski helments, and if you are planning on sledging, the sledge are all included in your booking fee. So if this is a one-off or infrequent visit then you do not need to pay any extra money to have some fun on the slopes.
However, if you are going to visit the indoor ski centres regularly, or are planning a trip at a real ski resort then you should seriously think about buying your own gear. If you buy your own skis, snowboard, and ski boots they will be the perfect fit for your level and you will get used to the feel of them so you can have as much fun as possible on the slopes.
