Snozone Milton Keynes

This slope offers Snowboard Club UK Members a discount.

The Milton Keynes Snozone is situated about 10 minutes from junction 14 of the M1. You can see the Xscape complex that houses the slope from the M1 and the building dominates the skyline for miles around. The slope eventually opened on 2nd October 2000 after some considerable delay and offers the longest slope and arguably the best indoor snow in the UK.

There are two main slopes. The park slope during the summer months turns into a half decent snowboard park. During the winter the punters and lessons are packed in, making the slope very busy sometimes.

Snow is produced by 16 snow guns using a system developed by Acer Snowmec of Birmingham. Pressurised air is forced through chilled water to produce a fine mist which freezes to form real snow crystals. The snow is deep and soft and kept frozen by a mean air temperature of -2°C and eight miles of under-snow cooling pipes. The slope is maintained by daily grooming using a mini deisel Kassborrer Pistebully which lurks in the garage at the bottom of the Lesson Slope.
