Visited for a ski lesson, having not been for many years. The surface on the main slope isn't fit to ski on - desperately slow and worn out. It didn't help that the tow on the main slope wasn't working. Found the staff very friendly...More

The place has seen better days: the decor looks very tired, the mats on the slope are falling apart, vending machines seem to be out of order permanently. It seems no one cares about the business any more. This is reflected by the staff. They...More

Having never tried skiing or such like before, I booked a snow tube session at Swadlincote for the 4 of us through Groupon. Both boys (5 &9) loved the toboggan rides and the snow tubes, well worth a visit. Especially at the offer price!

Hi No you won’t have to pay any entry fee’s and you will be able to move around with the kids and watch them. We just wore casual clothes (jeans, joggers etc) with good footwear, there is no particular dress code.
