Sheffield ski village £22.5m redevelopment plans

Sheffield ski village £22.5m redevelopment plans

The famed artificial ski slope which was destroyed by a fire in 2012 is being rebuilt by EXTREME destinations. A £22.5 million plan has been unveiled which will include multiple adventure sports facilities on the new site, including a ski slope, a zip line, cycle tracks and a lake for canoeing and kayaking.

The ski village is set to open in 2019 with further plans to expand with more leisure facilities, live music venues and on-site accommodation.

Alistair Gosling, CEO of EXTREME said: “This is a fantastic and unique opportunity to deliver an EXTREME Destination right in the heart of Sheffield We will be tapping into the world-wide phenomena of creating action and adventure destinations, where all the excitement of sport and leisure facilities come together – sports activities, accommodation, eating, drinking, shopping – in a totally immersive experience.

Sheffeld ski village was once one of the largest artificial ski resorts in Europe. Olympic skier James Wood’s grew up riding at the slope and it was the training ground for many of the Team GB Olympic squad.

More plans will emerge later in the year.
