The slope is 170 metres (560 ft) long by 30 metres (98 ft) wide with an incline of around 1:7. There are also 2 serial 'travelator' lifts for access back to the top and one rope-tow.
The Snowdome has a learner slope underneath the main slope. The main slope also holds regular 'ramp nights' in which several objects are added, including a gas pipe, mini rail and a quarter pipe.
There is also one ice rink and one ice track which circles the artificial Snow Play Centre and the ice rink with a number of other things.
The complex also contains a 25 metres (82 ft) swimming pool and gym—formerly known as Peaks Leisure Centre, but now owned and managed by the Snowdome as 'Snowdome Swim' and 'Snowdome Fitness' respectively. There is also a bar (aspens), a shop Ellis Brigham, and a Starbucks coffee shop on site.
Construction work started in early 2009 for Sawley Cross properties to build a 120-bed, £7M hotel on land adjacent to the snowdome. The Holiday Inn Hotel opened in late November 2009.
