Skiing/Snowboarding/­­Indoor Sky Diving

Who fancies hurling themselves down a hill with minimal control and no brakes? Or pretending you're Charlie Bucket and just nicked some of Willie Wonka's Fizzy Lifting Juice?

I'm going to be heading over to SnowZone in Milton Keynes for a snow boarding session and anyone is welcome to join me. A slope pass is £35 for 2 hours, lessons are £33 for an hour's session. There's also a vertical wind tunnel which is all kindsa fun, if a little pricey. If you want a lesson or to use the Wind tunnel then BOOK IN ADVANCE! (2 to 3 weeks should be enough). If you're just using a slope pass then you can just turn up.

All basic kit(boards/skis, boots and bindings) is included in the price. Warm clothes can be rented for a little extra or you can take your own. the only thing not available for rent (weirdly) is gloves.  BRING GLOVES!  You will need them.

I've put a provisional time of 12:30 on but that's flexible if people would rather go sooner or later.  It takes about 2 hr 15 so that means leaving Bristol at 10.

    Hi
    Sorry but I dont know if its too last minute to join this! I have never skiied or snowboarded before so I am super eager. I checked out the website and would you recommend doing lessons in a group (if there are other beginners) or single adult lesson for skiing/ snowboarding privately. There are a lot of different price quotes ranging and cant seem to find the one for £33. Many thanks!

      At the moment I'm aiming to be there at about 12:30 but, if you're going to try and get a lesson, you may not be able to get that slot. If you can a slot anywhere near that time, post on here and we'll adjust the plan to work around you.

    Hey all, Thought it was worth asking if anyone needs a lift for this. So far I've got Louise down for a spot in my car and I can fit 2 more.

    Hi my name is Jinyoung and I live in Buckingham near MK. I really wanted to go skiing for a ages !! I tried to make it to there this sunday but I may not be able to...
    I know it sounded strange but I haven't book any yet and I will try to book it soon...

      If you can ski already then you don't need to book. Just turn up. If you need a lesson then you'd have to book that. It might be difficult to get one at this short notice though.

    Draft 'yes' to be confirmed closer to the date. But I should have my snowboard back with me and ready by that time :)

    • Joanna (.

      I know, I know :) just ALL my gear, including snb pants and jacket, is not with me at the moment. But I'm expecting the combo to arrive late November :)

    • Declan

      Ah. Well everything's rentable except gloves but it's not the same as using your own.

      November 9

  • Louise

    Ok cool Dec, then count me in :o) I will probably be booking myself a snowboarding lesson.

    November 7

    • Declan

      Make sure you book early as it does tend to get filled up - particularly at this time of year when everyone's getting some practice in before they go on hols.

      Our timings are quite flexible so if you find you can only get and earlier or later slot then shout and I'll make sure you're there on time.

  • Louise

    Hi Dec, yes I would be interested in going but getting there maybe a problem. Will there be lift shares or anything?

    November 7

    • Declan

      Happy to offer a lift. I can fit up to 3 people in my car so I'll count you as one of the spaces.
