Norfolk isn’t known for its hills so opportunities for skiers to take to slopes on their local doorstep are limited. 

But Gas Hill - Norwich's steepest incline with an average gradient of 10.7 % - appears to have become the place to be during the current snowfalls. 

After a woman was spotted skiing down the hill earlier this week - before falling over at the end, a new video has emerged of a man on the makeshift city centre slope. 

Footage shows the man showing off some more sturdy skiing skills as he flies down the hill at speed before coming to a neat stop closer to the Lollard's Pit pub.

After overnight sub-zero temperatures, Wednesday saw more brief flurries but snow began to steadily meaning future skiing opportunities are melting away. 

People were still able to make the most of the weather close to home, building snowmen in their gardens or sledging near their homes though.
