If the plans for a Bristol snow dome get the green light, this is what you can expect to pay.
The Snozone at Milton Keynes is a very similar set-up to the one being proposed for Bristol. The dome at Cribbs Causeway will likely be much smaller though, so our prices may end up being much cheaper. Here’s what Milton Keynes Snozone charges for slope passes, lessons and when it’s open:
Ski in August? Well, why not
To use the main slope on your own you need to be able to link turns, control your speed, use a button life and fit your own boots. Passes include the hire of boots, skis/snowboards, poles and helmets.

Adults two-hour pass £34.99, juniors £29.99
