The operators of The Snow Centre Hemel Hempstead are adding a second facility to their portfolio with new slopes in Swindon
Full planning consent has now been approved for the construction of 15,800 square metres of indoor snow space within Swindon’s North Star Leisure Complex, due to open in 2020. The brand new snow centre will feature two indoor snow slopes with real snow; a 170m main slope, 75m lesson slope, and a designated fun zone for sledging and snow play.
Like its sister site, The Snow Centre Swindon will offer lessons and lift passes for kids and adults looking to master their skills on 1 plank or 2. The slope will be part of a 500,000 sq ft leisure, dining and retail destination which will also have trampoline park, gym and other facilities. The £270m project is lead by property development and investment company SevenCapital. Once complete, the centre will become the UK’s seventh indoor skiing facility and the first new real snow slope the UK has seen since The Snow Centre Hemel Hempstead opened its doors in May 2009.
