Just heard this on the news. There is a sit in taking place apparantly!

In reply to blanchie14c: I can't see what option they have.. by modern standards its short and outdated.. plus other areas are available. If they were to develop a ski centre in North Wales I can think of far better areas.

There already is one in Llandudno, which is not all that far away.

In reply to blanchie14c: I've never seen anyone use it when I've been there. One of those nostalgic things I guess!

In reply to blanchie14c: A slide-in, shirley?

Having seen the news report about this, the key argument that struck me was this: if PYB had available the 700,000 reported cost of replacement, what would you rather they did with it? Enhance what they can do for activities in, on and around mountains, or develop a new dry ski slope?

No real debate there for me.

In reply to AlisonSmiles:

I guess it was used more before Llandudno opened (I think it is older, right?)

When I was last there a few people were using it - but I would agree it is not a priority for them when there is a far better facility nearby.

In reply to Neil Williams: Yes I know, but there was also talk of a new one in the slate quarries. No matter how much they spend they'd still just be developing a very small bank..
