Indoor Skiing UK and Dry Ski Slope Directory

A directory of every indoor skiing UK centre and dry ski slope, supplemented by their contact details and location on Google Maps. You might also be interested in ski lift passes.

Indoor skiing is great because you can do it at any time of year and the snow is close to the real thing. Dry ski slopes use special mesh instead of snow, but it’s often outdoor and a more open experience. Both types are scattered all over the UK, so I thought it was about time to make a directory of them all incorporating Google Maps, so they’re easy to find. This indoor skiing uk directory couldn’t have been as extensive as it is, without the help of people commenting and suggesting additions. If there are any missing, or you have an update, please add a comment and I’ll make an update.

Indoor Skiing UK

The indoor skiing UK options are mostly in England. They’re generally centres offering other entertainment such as ice skating, along with skiing. They usually use a close resemblance to actual snow that’s kept by the interior conditions, which couldn’t be maintained outside. See the map below for all your indoor skiing UK areas, remember you can zoom in to the marker’s exact location and click on the marker for directions from wherever you live.

  1. Your location pin for SnOasis is a long way out. Look for Great Blakenham in Suffolk.

  2. Hi Ian, you’re absolutely right. Not sure how it ended up there, fixed now. Thanks for the correction.

  3. You have missed off Ipswich Dry ski slope — nothing to do with Snoasis, very much alive and active.

    Also Brentwood park — another active club

    and Bassingbourn (South of Cambridge) –

  4. Ryan

  5. Hi Steve, thanks for your comment. Your dry slope is actually already listed! It’s number 19 in the above. The second map has got a bit clustered, but if you zoom in a bit you’ll see it. It’s also on the text list with a link to your site including contact info.

  6. You really are missing loads of dry slopes. Others off the top of my head are:

    (Major slopes that host National level races)
    Bromley
    Gloucester
    Pendle
    Pontypool
    Rossendale
    Sunderland

    Others:
    Bowles (nr Tunbridge Wells)
    Folkestone (fairly short)
    Calshot (nr So’ton, very short)
    Churchill, nr Bristol
    Warmwell, Dorset
    Swansea,
    Exeter,
    Oval, on the Wirral
    Telford
    Kendal
    and I’m sure there are a host more.

  7. Clive, thanks for the Norfolk site update, I have changed accordingly.

    Graham, thanks very much for your list, there’s a good few I wasn’t aware of. I’ll look at adding them over the weekend.

    EDIT: All added.

  8. Your No.7 flag for Xscape Milton Keynes is **WAY** off target.

    I advise anyone wanting to go there to either search on the postcode or (I guess) go to the Xscape web site.

    Otherwise very useful page

  9. u missed the one in aberdeen , scotland (aberdeen snowsports centre it has 2 main slopes and tubing run and variety of feature including mogles rails jumps and 1/4 pipe
