Over 3 million visitors per year anticipated

The snow centre will bring real snow skiing and snowboarding within reach to many snowsport enthusiasts who have until now been unable to reach an indoor snow centre without a huge drive.

It’s expected that cities like Bristol, Bath and Cardiff will flock to the new centre with the developers anticipating 3.3 million visits per year.

Potential catchment area

Centre will open in 2020

The slopes will be managed by the team behind the existing Snow Centre at Hemel Hempstead, while Ellis Brigham are confirmed as the major retailer.

Work is expected to start on the project shortly, with an opening anticipated for 2020.
