Even if the skiing season is over, you can still enjoy skiing even in the off-season. Indoor skiing has become very popular during summer when “normal” skiing is not possible and also in countries, where the climate does not allow people to enjoy this more and more popular sport. Here are some resorts that offer indoor skiing and are becoming popular with every off-season.
SNO!Zone – United Kingdom
SNO!Zone is an indoor skiing dome chain in the UK. It has three venues: Milton Keynes in Buckinghamshire, Castleford in West Yorkshire, and Braehead in Glasgow. All these venues are opened all year long and together they create more than 1500 tons of snow daily.
The SNO!Zones are located within XSCAPE which is an entertainment destination that includes rock climbing, mini-golf, bowling, indoor sky diving, skate park, and a movie theatre. So you can be sure that even if you get tired of indoor skiing, there will still be plenty of other things to do.
