Snozones Summer Snodaes

Tuesday, 31 May 2011

SNO!zone, the UK's only chain of indoor real snow slopes, is taking the heat off the 'having fun' budget with its cool Summer SNO!daes offers.

From 1st June until 31st August, SNO!zone's three snow slopes in Milton Keynes, Castleford and Braehead, will be running its Summer SNO!daes offers, giving families the chance to have an absolute (snow)ball on a budget with its unique range of family slope activities.

SNO!zone's offers will give families the opportunity to re-live winter sledging fun or dare to ride the giant tubes on the ice slide for only £6 or go extreme and fly down the slope on ergonomic 'Hammerhead' sleds for only £10.

Families who have already hit the slopes for winter holidays in the mountains can enjoy a family pass on the main slope for only £60 for two hours, a great way to get active together, practising something you all love and saving more than 30 per cent at the same time.

Keen teens and adults who want to live on the edge and have a more adventurous summer can take advantage of SNO!zone's features on the slope every day. Plus for the whole summer period, avid freestylers can join SNO!zone's weekly freestyle nights every Thursday and Friday from just £25 - and pick up a 'Buy three get one free' collector card.

If this summer is more about fun with your friends or family, then you can make the most of the main slope with main slope passes for only £16 for two hours, or £25 for four hours, saving up to 50 per cent.

Ian Stenson, Operations Director, said: "We know that making the most of the summer in England can be both expensive and weather dependent, so we have introduced our new Summer SNO!daes offers to give families and friends the chance to enjoy an affordable day out, with perfect weather for snowsports guaranteed.

"We're really looking forward to turning the perception of skiing and snowboarding as a winter sport on its head this summer, encouraging lots of new customers to come in, chill out and treat themselves to what they have been missing.

All of SNO!zone's centres are housed within Xscape venues, a giant entertainment complex, which also offers bowling, cinema, rock climbing and other fun activities, restaurants, bars and shops - so there's plenty to do after fun in the snow!
