The Ski Resort
In Zoetermeer you can enjoy fun in the snow all year round. With an ambient temperature of -5°C, SnowWorld ensures winter in the ski hall 365 days a year. Three runs of varying difficulty are waiting to be explored here, no matter the season. Experts can look forward to the new piste 3 in particular – with a gradient of 20 percent, it’s the steepest run in the Netherlands and one of the steepest indoor slopes in Europe. There are no less than 10 lifts running here, ensuring a comfortable ascent back up to the top – with five surface lifts, four magic carpet lifts and one rope lift. Snowboarders can also hone their freestyle skills in the hall’s terrain park. The park set-up includes a rainbow box, butter box, down rail and jail rail. There’s also a ski and snowboard school on site here, offering courses for a range of age groups and skill levels.
