Create an itinerary including SnowDome
The first full-size recreational indoor ski slope in the UK, SnowDome opened in May 1994. The venue offers a multitude of activities, including skiing, snowboarding, ice-skating, swimming, and a fully equipped gymnasium. Measuring 170 m (560 ft) by 30 m (98 ft), the slope declines at a 14.3 percent grade. For novices, a beginner's slope sits underneath the main slope. Skis, snowboards, boots, poles, and protective headgear are included with the price of admission, but feel free to bring your own equipment. Take a break and relax with a drink and a snack in the bar or cafe. Make sure you bring warm clothing and gloves for skiing and snowboarding.

  • Love this place. It's well worth keeping an eye out for the many deals they have on as you can often get a good discount. On this occasion I was doing a Fast Track 1 snowboard lesson. 3 hours of awesomeness 😁 The instructors are superb, Matt in this case was our snowboard instructor and had the whole group doing solo runs by the end of the session. There is a learning slope that is in the picture and then the main slope where you can go once you know what you are doing. Also at the dome is a mass of kids activities to have a go at (snow tubing, ice skating, climbing etc) and restaurants. You could easily make a day of it. Nearby is a large lake if you fancy some fresh air and their is plenty of parking which is £2ish. Tip 1: Make sure you have 20p for the lockers! It's non refundable. Tip 2: If you are on the slope it gets really warm really quickly. Don't out too many layers on. Tip 3: Take a bottle of water for a lesson.
  • Really enjoy our time here, my boy (4 years old) did the (45min) introduction lesson to skiing, which he enjoyed. Instructor was great with the kids and patient. My wife and niece done their 1st ever ski lesson (2hr) which they enjoyed. I managed to get 2hr ski pass and another 2hr pass the next day why my niece did the wall climbing, to get a snowboarding fix in. I took my own gear. I would do again but took 2-3 mins to get to the top and 20sec to get down. Think this place is a great to learn before you get up in the real powder.
