What To Wear
You do not need expensive equipment or specialist clothing to enjoy yourself at the SnowDome. Here is a guide as to what you should wear and the equipment you need to enjoy yourself on the snow.
Wrap up warm, as you would for a cold winters day! Warm clothes, gloves and a hat are ideal. Also, sturdy footwear with a good grip suitable for walking on snow is recommended. Timberland type boots or Wellington boots are perfect, if not, trainers are fine but they are likely to get wet, so please bring a change of footwear. Lockers are also available for your personal belongings.
If you are ice skating, skate hire is included in the price of admission and your shoes will be looked after while you are out on the ice.
Skiing & Snowboarding
Warm clothing & gloves are essential for all slope users. Warm multi-layered leisure-wear is recommended (i.e. t-shirt or under layer, fleece and a jacket) as it’s always better to have a few layers than rely on a single thick jumper. Also, if you have anything waterproof, particularly trousers, then this is ideal.
Please note that jeans are not recommended as they will retain moisture, become cold and restrict movement.
Gloves are a necessity. These should preferably be non-woolly as snow clings to wool. A pair of leather gloves or specialist ski or snowboard gloves will keep your hands warm.
Skis, snowboards, boots, poles and protective headwear are provided free of charge and you are welcome to use your own equipment if you wish. Protective headwear is compulsory for all snowboard lessons and slope users who wish to use the ramps and rails. Lockers are available for your personal belongings.
