Outdoor fun for everyone!
At Warmwell we are pleased to be able to offer one of the most diverse holiday parks in Dorset. Not only can you choose to take it easy in this relaxing landscaped setting with it's own lakes and nature trails but you can also sample a range of food and drink establishments, swim, skate and even try your hand at snowsports on our very own Snowflex built 110 metre outdoor ski slope!
Young enthusiasts and those not yet confident enough to tackle the main slope can get started on our nursery slope. This gentle slope is made of the same snowflex material and will allow you to get to grips with the equipment in a slower and safer environment.
Hit the slopes, there's something for all ages and abilities
THE NURSERY SLOPE
The Nursery Slope for beginners is 300m² in size with two teaching lanes separated by a Briton Dual-sided Queuedodger servicing both lanes.
THE MAIN SLOPE
At 110m long and 23m wide it offers approximately 2,500 metres squared of ski-able area. The slope is serviced by the existing BritonButton rope tow, with a capacity of up to 800 trips per hour to the top of the hill and two get-off points for less confident users.
THE WEST SIDE
The west side of the slope is a simple design with a small roller part way down. This slope is ideal for open practice and lessons and is designed to allow the maximum number of persons down the slope with the minimum number of obstacles.
THE FUN PARK
More advanced skiers and snowboarders can take a further ascent up a second Queuedodger rope tow to the summit, on top of the fun park launch platform. Descending down this east side into the fun park is a steep in-run down a choice of either a rainbow rail or down toward the jump zone. We also now have an upflatdownrail available on boarders night...
THE JUMP ZONE
The jump zone comprises a choice of a fun-box-style jump, a further straight or rainbow rail or a traditional kicker jump with a ramp of 5m long, 2m wide and 1.2m high. All three of these features drop onto a steep landing area designed for 'long air' but with maximum possible safety. This landing area is set into a bowl and features two alternative side entries for those just starting out in freestyle and wishing to approach from the adjacent practice slope.
Something a little different?
