Ski Rossendale has begun more exciting redevelopment plans at its Haslingden Old Road site.
Working with Rossendale Council, The Ski Rossendale Board has created a proposal to build a new reception, changing area, café and outside dining area at the Rawtenstall-based dry ski slope.
The new plans are part of an overall 630K project, funded by Sport England and supported by Rossendale Council, which includes enhanced skiing facilities along with the new ski centre building.
The development began last August with the installation of purpose build beginner, improver and family slopes. This first phase was completed in November 2016.
The second phase of the development, due to begin in September 2017, will see the construction of the purpose built ski centre building which will provide an improved café and catering offer for the public.
The centre will remain open as usual during the redevelopment.
Dave Fuller, Director of Ski Rossendale, said:
The centre now attracts over 30,000 visitors every year who come here to get lessons and practice their skiing techniques. We also host corporate adventure and team building days and so it’s vital we have high quality facilities to give the public the best possible experience.
Councillor Andy MacNae, Executive Member for Regeneration, said:
Ski Rossendale plays a vital part in attracting visitors from outside the borough into Rossendale bringing with them revenue and helping to create jobs. The facility also further enhances Rossendale’s reputation as ‘Adrenaline Valley’, where families, groups and thrill seekers can come to try something new, learn new skills or just have fun.
We are supportive of the continued development of the Ski Rossendale site.
