Sno!zone, Castleford

The white stuff: The Castleford branch of Sno!zone holds more than 1500 tonnes of snow, which means all the sub-zero skiing and snowboarding shenanigans you could ever ask for. Short on time?

Book on to the intensive eight-hour training day, during which you can cover the beginner’s programme (normally split into four lessons) in one go.

It’ll be a killer on the thighs, but you’ll end up ready for the main slope by the end of the day. It costs £159.99pp.

When you’re not zooming down the slopes, keep your eyes peeled for skiing celebs – apparently Justin Timberlake, Peter Andre and Girls Aloud like a little Sno!zone action, too.

More chilly thrills: There are heaps of activities besides skiing and snowboarding.

Try the ice slide (£15.99 for 45 minutes), where you’ll be given a large rubber tube to sit inside before speeding through the carved-out ice-run.

There’s also a sledging run which costs £11.99 for 30 minutes.

Snow Factor, Glasgow

The white stuff: Here you’ll find an impressive 200m main run, the longest in the UK, and some 1500 tonnes of snow, making it spot-on for intermediate skiers and boarders looking to improve their technique and practice at speed.

There’s also a smaller and quieter dedicated learners’ slope. Lessons cost £29 per hour.

More chilly thrills: At the moment, your only non-skiing or snowboarding option here is sledging, which costs £11 for 30 minutes.

However, there are plans to open an ice luge (a first for the UK) and an ice-climbing wall before winter’s end.
