Skiing is extremely popular in the United Kingdom, but most shredders have to get creative in order to get their turns in due to the lack of snow in most of the country. You can take the train or fly to France, Italy, or other European countries to get some real skiing in. Or you can get some turns up north in Scotland at some smaller ski areas, ski on outside synthetic ski slopes, or go to an indoor ski area. In Wales, it looks like a new major synthetic ski resort will soon be opening.
The Sun reports that Neath Port Talbot Council has given Afan Valley Adventure Resort conditional approval to begin work on the massive project. These conditions include “creating a solar farm and contributing £180,000 to a nearby cycle route.” The number of amenities at the new resort is impressive: “ski slopes, zip wires, treetop high-wire courses, Bear Grylls Survival Academy, an aqua adventure park, an equestrian centre, mountain biking, BMX and skate parks, a luxury spa, central plaza with shops and restaurants, 100-bed hotel and 500 luxury lodges.” There would also be a water sports facility, which would have activities such as scuba diving, canoeing, and surfing.
