There are now 6 indoor ski/snow slopes in the UK and hopefully more will be built in the future. Whilst you can't compare it with 7 days in the Alps, these centre undoubtedly serve a real purpose in the modern-day UK, which apart from the mountains of Scotland, is mainly now home to much milder, often snow-free winters.
For the likes of beginners who want a taster course before they venture abroad, intermediates who want to hone their new found skills, and addicts who just need a regular fix of the white stuff, the UK's indoor slopes provide a genuine option, and their ongoing popularity proves their worth. For now, we've got to make the most of the six centres we've got across the UK, but it would be great if at some point in the future a much larger indoor slope could be built in the UK, along the lines of the incredible SnowWorld centre at Landgraaf in the Netherlands.
