SNO!zone, the UK’s only chain of indoor snow centres celebrates its 10th birthday this year. The company took over the operation of the snow slope in Milton Keynes in 2000 and went on to design and build SNO!zone Castleford in 2003 and SNO!zone Scotland in 2006 to keep up with the growing popularity of snowsports in the UK.

In the last 10 years SNO!zone has taught more than a million people to ski or snowboard and seen more than two and a half million using its slopes to practice snowsports all year round. A further million have experienced the exhilaration of sledging and ice sliding at the three slopes. As well as the main slope, a dedicated lesson slope at each centre allows visitors to learn the basics of skiing and snowboarding with qualified instructors

Each 170m long main slope is covered with more than 1700 tonnes of fresh snow - equivalent to the weight of 10 blue whales or 30,000 wheelbarrows of snow

SNO!zone has also featured in some of the UK's most popular TV programmes such as Big Brother, Cash in the Attic, Wife Swap and welcomed celebrities including Justin Timberlake, Peter Andre, Heston Blumenthal and Girls Aloud.

SNO!zone also nurtures some of the best young snowsports talent in the UK sponsoring more than 60 athletes annually including Olympians Zoe Gillings and Sean Rose
