Plans Released to Build International Standard Indoor Snow Centre in Wales

September 6, 2017

Plans have been revealed this week for a major new indoor snow centre in Merthyr Tydfil.

At 500 metres in length, the snow sport centre would be home to the longest indoor ski slope in the UK (the longest currently is in Manchester at 180m), and would be one of the longest in Europe. The land owners and lead development company on the project Marvel Limited have signed an agreement with Snowsport Cymru Wales to work together on the delivery of the state-of-the-art snow sport facility which could be the future training base for the Team GB ski and snowboard team, which currently travels year-round to indoor ski centres elsewhere in Europe.
