Indoor Ski Slopes
Business & Investment Opportunities
Just like real skiing…
you’ll be able to practice turn after turn without stopping allowing you to better simulate real ski runs. Typically you’ll spend 30 mins on the slope in every hour, that’s the equivalent of 11klm!!! (Mt Everest is 9klm tall). Quite literally we can offer you the longest ski runs in the world! Safe for beginners and vital for experts, even the Swiss Race team use them to train!
No Lifts ~ No Queues ~More Time Skiing
