Snozone, the company which operates two of the UK’s six indoor snow centres, Milton Keynes and Castleford, is to take over one of three conveyor-dry-slope centres which were recently closed when their operator, Skiplex, went bust.

Snozone will operate the Basingstoke centre in the Basingstoke Leisure Park from today (Monday, 23rd October, 2017) three months after its former owners went into liquidation.  The facility will now be called Skizone.

The Basingstoke centre has two conveyor style dry slopes which operate at various angles and speeds like the skiing version of a giant runner’s treadmill, depending on the ability level of the skiers using the slope.

Kyle Bell, group general manager at Snozone, said the company’s aim with the purchase was, “…a great way for Snozone to bring our expertise to a wider audience.”

The facility also has an iFLY indoor skydiving centre.

There is no news as yet on the fate of the other two former Skiplex centres at Reading and Chiswick.
