Boris Johnson Announces New £200m Snow Dome at London’s Olympic Park

Date Posted: 25th Jul 2013
Category:  Ski Resorts

Set to be one of the largest indoor ski resorts in the world — London’s Stratford-based Olympic Park will house a brand new giant snow dome, costing up to £200m.

The project, believed to be funded by Westfield shopping centre developers, is expected to open in 2015 and will boast a ski run reaching 300m in length, along with sled runs and play areas for children.

With around 20,000 sq metres of piste, it will be similar in size to the world’s largest ski snow dome in Dubai and will be almost twice the size of the next largest indoor ski centres in the UK.

London Mayor, Boris Johnson, announced the exciting new venture earlier today, stating “Stratford’s status as a stunning new destination is confirmed by Westfield’s plans for a world-class indoor ski centre. This underscores the massive confidence in this area from investors which is delivering a real payback for taxpayers in terms of jobs and the regeneration of east London.”

Sure to be enormously popular, given the numbers that flock to the slopes at Hemel Hamstead, Milton Keynes and Trafford, over three million visitors are predicted per year.

The project will be sure to boost snowsports in the UK and will be greatly welcomed to London.
