Review Detail
Have been here many times but probably not in the last year. Once you reach a certain standard there isnt much a dry slope can offer you.
Strengths
They do have a park section at the top with 2 quarter pipers, a 'box' and a kicker. Board hire is decent. Its not all the hex type material, some is the 'carpet-like' material.

Its fun to go here when it has actualy snowed.
Weaknesses
The main kicker is wayyyy too narrow. Its about a metre wide and not conducive to learning to rotate your spins. As someone else said you could do with a better run up. The quarter pipe half way is poor. And often the sprinklers areent on, have to ask to put them on, is too slow without.

Review Detail
As the previous reviews have said they do have an assortment of features up on the astro section and a quarter pipe further down.
Strengths
hmm? that they do have stuff to play with (kickers, quarter pipe)
Good place to have lessons before you go to the snow, but you won't want to return after!
Weaknesses
That you can't get enough speed up to ride them. the quarter pipe is fine but the top section should be in the middle give you a chance to ride at the stuff! and as for board hire, its good stuff? did they hide the good stuff when i turned up?

Review Detail
I go to Gloucester really often as it is the only decent place to board around here. The board hire has to be its greatest strengh. The boards are mainly by Tresspass or Rossignol and come with standard bindings (no fancy step - ins). These are of a resonable standard, but if you have your own board I would advise you to bring that. The 2 slopes are made of dendex with poma lifts used. At the top of the main slope there is a 'fun - park' covered with white astro turf. This consists of 2 'mini' quarterpipes, 2 kickers and a tabletop. The slopes are always kept moist with the sprinkler systems and I have never had any problems with speed.
Strengths
Loyalty card, fun park, board hire.
Weaknesses
Length of slope

Review Detail
The centre has 2 slopes laid in Dendex, both fed by poma lifts. The main and largest slope has ramps and 2x small quarter pipes built into the top section with the white astro turf covering, below this there is a section of moguls and halfway down there is a small quarter pipe. At the bottom of the slope to one side there is an astro turf area with its own drag lift which is used mainly for lessons.
Strengths
The ramps and the quarter pipes, the snowboard and boot hire, The choice of two slopes.
Lift exits at different heights. Fairly inexpensive.
Weaknesses
As with all dry slopes the length is quite short.
