Tamworth Snowdome

This slope offers Snowboard Club UK Members a discount.

The Tamworth Snowdome is situated north east of Birmingham, a few miles off the M42. It opened in May 1994 and was the first full sized recreational indoor slope in the UK for skiing and snowboarding.

Tamworth is arguably the best indoor slope in the UK. Whilst the slope isn't as long as Milton Keynes, the atmosphere and general customer care make up for this ten fold, especially during the late night snowboard sessions.

The indoor ski slope allows you to ski and snowboard all year round on real snow. It utilises a process developed by ProSnow International of Adelaide, Australia which now jointly owns the slope. Their process allows the manufacture of snow that will stay in top class condition, while the ambient temperature of the building remains at a comfortable 5-8°C.

We have all the recent news on this slope here.


Latest News

Tamworth opened the Rocky Mountain Bar in January 2005, plus an indoor skidoo racing track, kids play area and ice rink.

Food/Drink

The bars at Tamworth are excellent. Very big and well stocked. They overlook the bottom of the slope. There's also a balcony that overlooks the quarterpipe and the total width at the bottom of the slope for those spectators wishing to get closer to the action. This often hosts a DJ and BBQ.

Other Facilities

Ellis Brigham/The Snowboard Asylum have a large shop on site.

Tamworth opened the Rocky Mountain Bar in January 2005, plus an indoor skidoo racing track, kids play area and ice rink.

There's also a swimming pool (that uses the waste heat from the slope) and a fitness centre. Since October 2007, these are also owned and run by The Snowdome Group.
