Plas y Brenin Ski Slope Re-Opens

25 Sep 2014

On Sunday 28 September, Plas y Brenin ski slope in Capel Curig, North Wales will reopen following a £50,000 refurbishment.

Plas y Brenin National Mountaineering Centre is one of the three national sports centres owned by Sport England. The centre is operated by the Mountain Training Trust an organisation with a world-class reputation in the mountaineering and outdoor sport sector.

The ski slope has deteriorated over the years and was in need of a major refurbishment and closed for a period of time. Various organisations have now come together and have worked to re-open the slope, funding has been committed by Sport England, North Wales Snow Sport Club, the Skiers Trust GB and Snowsport Wales.

Sport England Property Director Charles Johnston said: "The commitment from all parties has been very positive and we hope to see an increase in use on the slope during the forthcoming year. As with all our investments we need to ensure good value for money and we will need to see that the slope is well used and is valued by the community.""

Martin Doyle from Mountain Training Trust said: "We will be working hard with the North Wales Ski Club to generate interest in the ski slope and look forward to a successful year."
