DiSCOVER backcountry sessions

Ski & Snowboard 10/11/2018

Join Ellis Brigham and Blair Aitken from British Backcountry for a DiSCOVER BACKCOUNTRY indoor session at the SnowDome, Tamworth on 10th November to become more familiar with touring and the equipment used.

During the session Blair will give you tips and techniques that will help you master skinning (including kick turns); learn the theory of terrain choice and avalanche awareness; practice transceiver searches; and he will coach you on your downhill ski performance.


10th November 7.30am – 12:30pm


You will need to be confident skiing the main slope, and ideally a hard red run on-resort. If you have not skied for a while it is recommended that you try and visit the centre prior to booking onto the course.


If you have your own ski touring equipment please bring it. Touring skis and skins can be provided, we must know your ski boot sole length size at the time of booking (enter your details at the time of booking when prompted) if you need to borrow skis. Avalanche safety equipment will be supplied.


£74 (plus booking fee) per person including ski touring and avalanche equipment, coaching and lift pass, maximum 10 in a group.

Temporarily closed from 21st March

We have taken the difficult decision to temporarily close the SnowDome from 21st March as we believe this is the right thing to do to protect the health and wellbeing of our employees and guests.

The SnowDome will remain temporarily closed until further notice.

Please refer to our website and social media channels for updates on re-opening.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the SnowDome as soon as it’s appropriate to do so.

Our aim is to deal with immediate bookings first. If you have a booking for a visit between 21st – 27th March then you will hear from us automatically this weekend.

We will then contact people with bookings from 28th March onwards next week.

Please do not call us unnecessarily this weekend as we try to deal with immediate bookings only. We will be contacting everybody as soon as we can.

Many thanks for your co-operation and understanding.
