A development near the Trafford centre is set to become the UK’s biggest indoor alpine centre.
A consortium of backers are behind the project which also involves Trafford Centre owners Peel Holdings. They intend to build a rock-climbing wall, a toboggan run, an indoor skateboard park and a children’s snowplay zone where youngsters can build snowmen and throw snowballs. A separate “warm” zone will feature Alpine-themed bars specially designed by Austrian craftsmen and restaurants with panoramic windows and balconies overlooking the slopes.
There was supposed to be a big indoor snow centre built in Salford a few years ago, but it never got beyond a billboard promising so much fun. I think they’re building flats on the ground cleared for it now.
