Update on the Indoor Snow Facility

August 9, 2018

Plans continue to make progress for the development of a major indoor snow facility in Merthyr.


Recent public consultations have showed good support for the development, the next stage will include the submission of planning applications later in 2018. For an overview of the project and chance to give your feedback, please visit the development website - http://www.rhydycarwest.com/en/ 

The 500m long slopes will serve as a centre of excellence for snowsport, with plans to host Team GB training as well as international events. The elite aspect of the facility is fantastic, however that's not what will make the slope excellent! The whole facility will allow for significant increase in participation and development for the sport in Wales from grass roots, through schools and the development of long term participation. 

The facility plans set out the largest indoor snow facility in the UK and offer huge potential for the development of the sport in the UK as a whole, not just for Wales. 

This is a major and ambitious project for Wales which Snowsport Cymru Wales are proud be involved with and support.
