So in addition to the MASSIVE one going in at Cardiff (soon honest), and the MASSIVE one going in Clevedon(yeah really soon too), there's this MASSIVE one going in at Merthyr... If you live in Newport you'll be spoiled for choice!


Had it on very good authority that the Cardiff slope is not going to happen.

Couldn't / wouldn't build a slope longer than 180m, which would not futureproof it against sites developed in SW England.

Would have become a 'white elephant / sheep Wink'

They should speak to the Dutch when it comes to indoor slopes.


One of the factors. Currently Welsh National Championships held at Landgraaff.

Would have been good to move it to Llandaff, but Merthyr is a better site.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

I think that @rob@rar is right in that a ski slope would fit in with that area's desire to portray itself as an "adventure playground", what with Bike Park Wales and the Beacons close to hand. Would love to see it built (easy drive from the 'Diff) but I cannot see the numbers stacking up.


Bike Park Wales is definitely a factor.

Plenty of customers crossing the Severn Bridge to cycle here.

North Wales has done a great job of packaging a multi-activity short break in the Snowdonia area around Surf Snowdonia, Zip World, Bounce Below, coasteering, hiking & biking.

The Merthyr development is attempting to do the same for S Wales, but with better access and taking the elements out of the equation for a number of the activities.
