The National Student's Summer Day Out at... SnoZone, Milton Keynes
Share This Article:
I'm a moderately competent skier, so a normal indoor slope session wouldn't normally be that attractive an option - hitting the slopes in Val D’Isere seems like a much better idea. However, Milton Keynes SnoZone impressed me - minus the beginning (which I'll get to in a minute) the slope was really good! They tell you to arrive about an hour before your session, unfortunately this may be enough for those that don’t have to try on six pairs of trousers because none of the hire salopettes fit. It was also quite busy at the desk with one member of staff, which made the whole situation one which I never want to repeat again. I am not fat, nor skinny, but then again what is a normal size woman? Another annoying thing is that you are not allowed to have cameras on the slope. I realise this is in case they break, but skiiers should be allowed and do so at their own risk, rather than not being allowed to take mobiles on the slope at all. I could have taken better pictures, but cameras are not allowed inside and the glass in the cafe isn’t the best to see through. My one last moan is lockers. They charged £1 to store your bags and kit, for you to not get it back at the end? A minor teething problem here, somewhat of a money making scheme in my eyes and one which is rather annoying when you end up going back to the locker several times, for your asthma inhaler (vital when needed) and for gloves. This unfortunate situation meant I lost £4 in the lockers simply as I wanted to open up my locker several times. I can imagine this would prove even more annoying for those doing a day session or a four-hour long session and wanting to have lunch or grab a drink half way through. I feel this is something that is not needed and could save members and users the problem of spending even MORE money.
