David Beckham wraps up warm as he takes sons Brooklyn and Romeo skiing... in Hemel Hempstead

When you think of pounding the slopes and making the most of the white snow on a skiing trip, the locations that most readily come to mind include France and Switzerland.

But David Beckham went for somewhere a little closer to home today as he took sons Brooklyn and Romeo to an indoor ski slope in Hemel Hempstead.

The sportsman was accompanied by wife Victoria, who decided not to try her luck on the slopes and watched from the safety of the bar, as he and his three sons went to The Snow Centre.

And Beckham wisely decided to wrap up warm in a padded North Face jacket and woolly hat as he watched eight-year-old Romeo getting lessons with ski instructor Josh Eastham before having a go himself.

Meanwhile, confident Brooklyn, 11, decided he would go solo on the slopes, but under the supervision of ever-watchful Victoria.

The Snow Centre boasts over 8,000m square of real snow, as well as a 160m long main slope and a lesson slope which is the largest indoor lesson slope in the country.

The Beckhams are no strangers to ski holidays, having had various vacations in the alps during the winter months.

Victoria famously caused a storm when she stepped out in an entire Chanel skiing outfit, complete with Chanel-branded skis, in Courchevel in April 2007.

Earlier this week, Beckham teased fans by posting a picture of himself getting a new tattoo on his chest - but refused to say what the tattoo was of.

And there was no further indication of which design Beckham had gone for, as he kept wrapped up in his stylish winter outfit at the centre.
