With mammoth leisure centres peppered across the country, Snozone is the only chain of snow slopes in the UK decked out with real indoor snow carpeting. In Castleford, the sultans of snow provide daily blizzards to keep the runs fresh with 1500 tonnes of the white stuff to facilitate skiing, snowboarding, and sledging. Providing customers with a range of lessons, slope passes, freestyle opportunities, and special events, the icy experts ensure there is something for beginners and pro snowsurfers alike, seven days a week.
Strapping on the boots, instructors will guide solo skiers or snow-carving couples in their chosen sport of skiing or snowboarding, over the course of a 90-minute session. Skiing rookies will be taught the skills of balancing on their poles and controlling their descent in a snowplough position, while boarders can get off their bums with edging and sliding skills. All lessons slush along in sociable group formation, and at a gentle pace.
TripAdvisors rate Snozone a fine 4/5 stars. While opinions vary on group sizes, reviewers praise the level of tuition and value for money.
Had an hour family snowboard lesson and we all picked it up pretty quick (we normally ski.) Instructor very good and patient with kids. Good fun. – Jenny B, TripAdvisor, Oct 2011
We went on a group event and the activities offered where fantastic but I have to say the staff where exceptionally helpful, understanding and friendly ... I would recommend this venue to anyone planning a corporate event, a party or just up for a laugh. – JMS-Designs, Qype, May 2011
