#1  Swansea Snow domey thingy  20 Feb '08 at 19:39
Hey guys, any of you lot living in Swansea? I'm moving there in September, cause my girlfriend has got place at the med school, and I hear rumour that there are plans afoot to build a snow slope.

Now I've heard that they a ripping out the old matting etc and have got the lease for the land but I know nothing else. The last info I can find is from June last year.

As an instructor obviously I'd prefer to be working on a slope rather than a shop selling surf kit then travelling to Cardiff to teach.

So please share any info, and if you feel like it some ninja undercover photos of what's going on (if anything...)

Si

I live a couple of miles from swansea,the old dry slope is the site of the supposed new indoor place,they ripped everything out last year(or maybe the year before?)nothing happening at the moment,last i heard was there were some investors from london trying to put something together.stating that people would be drawn to swansea for boarding/skiing and surfing at the new leasure centre with an indoor wave rider thing. the guy who owns it has a travel agency in mumbles.The closest slope to swansea would be pembrey in Llanelli.Loads of surfing though
