There are now 6 indoor ski and snow slopes in the United Kingdom, with more in the pipeline.
Whilst you can't compare it with 7 days in the Alps, these indoor centres are now invaluable in the modern-day United Kingdom, where mild (and often snow-less) winters are the order of the day.
So for a range of UK skiers, such as beginners (who maybe want a taster course before they venture abroad), intermediates (who want to hone their new found skills) and just plain addicts (who need a regular fix of the white stuff) these indoor ski centres have been a godsend.
