What to wear

The temperature is between -2°C and -6°C on the slope, so you’re best to dress for these conditions!

Following the Coronavirus Pandemic, information on this page may be incorrect. Please contact a member of The Snow Centre team if you would like further information by e-mail or you can call us on 01442 241321.

We recommend wearing warm waterproof jacket and trousers, waterproof gloves and thick socks, jeans are not recommended. If you don’t have any of these items you can hire a jacket and trousers from us for £8 and purchase gloves for £10.00 and socks for £5.

As there’s no wind on the slope, you won’t need thermals, just a long sleeved t-shirt or jumper under your jacket will normally be adequate. We don’t recommend you wear trousers under our waterproof trousers. Changing cubicles can be found in the rental area.

There’s no need for sunglasses or goggles - the slope’s artificially lit!

All our activities include the equipment you need: skis, snowboards, boots, ski poles, sledges and helmets. Helmets are compulsory for anyone taking part in an on-snow activity. You can bring your own or borrow one of ours, these are available in various sizes and can be collected from the Rental Area.

We offer top of the range ski and snowboard equipment from leading Snowsports brand HEAD - available to you at no extra cost. Several Gold medallists in the last winter Olympics used HEAD ski equipment, plus our partnership with HEAD means we’re giving you access to some of the newest equipment on the market.

 

The word from the slopes

  • “Having never been skiing before, I booked in for the full-day introductory course. The instructor Richard was extremely patient and allowed me to get to grips with the basics at my own pace. The Snow Centre is a very impressive facility, with the learning slope separate from the main slope so you don't feel under pressure if you are a beginner. Overall I really enjoyed it and would definitely go back.”

  • “Had a 2 hour adult woman’s group with Alan who is amazing, very patient And explains things in such a simple way you can progress with ease he paid attention to everyone in the class which was lovely ...!!”

  • “Thank you Julie for your kind hearted gesture this morning of buying a coffee for all NHS workers - it was definitely what I needed ready to face a busy shift! The coffee was lovely - as were you, and I will definitely pop in more often, as it is such a convenient place for a quick pick me up! Thank you!!”

  • “Huge thanks to Craig,or Carl, sorry can't remember which who was amazing loading sit skis yesterday. Also Beeman with his ever helpful how are you, can I help greetings. Snow really good as well.”
