This is an excellent indoor ski experience, on real snow. Ideal for kids and beginners, and reasonably priced at approx £10 per hour including skis and boots. Clothing can be hired for a few ££. Upstairs is a viewing area/ cafe with good quality F&B. Overall a great experience

The snow centre is a great place to practice your ski skills. The slopes are large enough but become rough later in the day. I would regiment visiting during a week day as it can become to busy at night and weekends.

Absolutely love this place! The staff are great and the snow is perfect, I usually spend at least 3 days a week snowboarding here and with the monthly pass it's amazing value! Everybody treats you so well wether you're just hitting the slope or on a lesson, you even get free tea and coffee during the morning sessions! It almost... More

I have had two snowboarding lessons at the Snow Centre and I have found the instructors to be helpful and considerate. They made the lessons fun and interesting and really helped progress my skills. I will be returning to have more lessons in the very near future. Perhaps last night was a one off, but they appear to be very... More

The slope and facilities are well looked after and sufficient even during the busy weekend peak hours (which was very busy!) I spent a couple of hours dusting off the cobwebs while my wife learnt to board in a day. Her instructor was very good and spread her time across the group so everyone got some one on one time....

I booked a lesson after not having skied for about 15 years. Randomly chose level 2 which turned out to be perfect because James, our instructor, got the level of instruction and the level of practice just right. Once it got a bit crowded in the first slope and we'd had some practice he moved us onto the middle bunny... More

Wanted to get my car washed by gentlemen in the large car park, what a great job they did too, I thought I might as well wait in The Snow Center, I used the lift to get to the top floor and noticed it stops on floor 1 automatically? I ordered a Lager and found a seat by the many... More

Loved my experience at the snow centre. Great to be able to ski without flying to the mountains. The snow might not be as crisp as an Alpine resorts but it allows you to practice your skills and stay fit ready for the next season. The instructors are knowledgeable and show a good understanding of the needs of the individuals... More
