Tamworth Snowdome is situated north east of Birmingham, a few miles off the M42 and was the very first indoor slope in the country, causing mass hysteria when it opened its doors back in January 1994.
Unlike any other in the UK, the 150 metre real snow slope has a ninety degree bend along its course which breaks things up nicely (perfect for Euro-carving) with the slope measuring 30 metres across. Notably, the Snowdome runs a lot warmer than other slopes at a balmy +4°C and has a slightly shallower gradient of 12 to 13 degrees with access gained via a large travellator or alternative rope tow.
Having been around for over 20 years, The Snowdome is held in high regard and they put a lot of pride and effort into the many events and freestyle nights that they run, including ourSnowboard Club UK Summer Bash which has run for over 10 years. Tuesdays are specifically aimed at beginners and recreational riding, with Saturday a chance to hit the street obstacles and big kickers.
For slope safety, riders must achieve a level of proficiency before hitting the slopes recreationally and the Snowdome have expert instructors to get beginners up-to-speed quickly.
The Aspen bar and restaurant is arranged over 2 floors with fantastic views over the slope and a slope-side balcony and there is a Snowboard Asylum onsite for all you snowboarding needs.
Snowsports are the main focus at the Snowdome which also include Tubing, Toboganning, an ice-skating rink, and the UK’s only Ice Track, but they also have a large Gym, Swimming Pool with Flume and Spa.
