Snozone's indoor ski slope is at a constant temperature of minus 2 degrees Celsius.

Now, as it prepares to re-open after lockdown, it has switched to its shift to 100% renewable electricity with the help of Cardiff-based energy management consultancy amber energy.

The site, which is in the Xscape building is now Renewable Electricity EcoAct Assured and is using hydro-, wind-, and solar-powered electricity from Bryt Energy, the zero-carbon business energy supplier.
