Danish toymaker LEGO has released ski-themed sets in the past but nothing like they are about to release with the new Ski Resort set. Set, 60203 is a City set containing 806 pieces along with eleven minifigures. When released, probably sometime in September, the set will cost £79.99 or $89.99.
Here is more information from brickset.com:
- Includes 11 LEGO City minifigures – 3 ski patrol members, a ski shop salesman, a helicopter pilot, a skier, a snowboarder, 2 children, a beverage vendor and a customer – as well as a dog figure and a snowman figure to assemble.
- This excellent construction toy includes a two-story rescue station with rooftop communication antennas, a ski shop with a large screen and a shelf for snowboards and skis, a hot drinks and cupcakes stand, a fantastic snow park with floodlight mast, halfpipe with stairs and a separate rail.
- In addition, this children’s kit includes an all-wheel truck with a movable snow plow and roof rack, a snowmobile with a trailer and a helicopter with a hinged cockpit, rotatable rotors, and a camera.
- The accessories include 4 pairs of skis, 3 pairs of ski poles, 4 snowboards, 4 cups, 2 cupcakes, a syringe element, a hand plaster, 2 ice axes, binoculars, 2 radios, 2 buckets, a tool / first aid box, one wrench, an axe, a circular saw, a broom, snowshoes, a helmet with ski goggles, a warm hat and a stretcher, as well as signage to assemble and a brick separator.
You can round out your LEGO ski resort set with LEGO’s snow groomer. If you’re into LEGO’s and skiing, it does not get much better than this. Unlike the new ski resort set, the LEGO snow groomer (60222) is available now.
Before kids hit the brick-built slopes, they need the 60222 LEGO City Snow Groomer to get the mountains ready for skiers and snowboarders! Children can use the snow cannon to fill the hills with white snow element bricks, by turning the knob to fire snow studs and swiveling the cannon for even coverage. Then, using the front loader, kids can sweep up the snow!
