/ Plas Y Brenin ski slope to close
There already is one in Llandudno, which is not all that far away.
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.
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.
