Ski park in Randers will have a total area of 100,000sqm, dwarfing SkiDubai
Danish architecture firm CEBRA has announced that it is working in collaboration with a travel company to develop an alpine ski dome that will surpass SkiDubai as the largest indoor ski facility in the world.
Located in the city of Randers in Denmark, the ski park will provide over 3km of indoor and outdoor slopes, as well as a freestyle park, hotel, restaurant and all the modern facilities that customers would expect in a modern ski resort, developers said.
With the design based on a six point snowflake, the park will have a total area of 100,000m2, with 70,000m2 dedicated to skiing, a press release said. SkiDubai currently has 22,500m2 of space in its indoor skiing facility.
CEBRA said that the structure will consist of three arches, with each arch spanning 700m across the river Gudenåen, with the top arch’s highest point rises 110m over the surrounding landscape.
“It is the aim of the ski dome that it can be used and enjoyed by everyone – any time of the day, any time of the year. Thus the arches’ exterior roof surfaces are an integrated part of the design, equal to the interior ski slopes with real snow. The top arch’s roof offers two black pistes, allowing outdoor skiing even during the summer,” the architecture firm said in a statement.
The middle arch will be shaped like an urban playground with street sport facilities for skateboarding, BMX and so on. The bottom arch will have a green landscape roof, which will be like a raised city park, with a wide range of leisure activities, the firm added.
