Around 20,000 square metres of piste will be created using “real” snow, with the longest of several runs expected to be 300 metres. There will also be snowboard ramps, toboggan runs, an ice-skating rink and “snow-play” zones for children.
The year-round attraction hopes to attract up to three million visitors a year and could be ready to open its doors in 2015. telegraph.co.uk
