This solitary skier gives some idea of the scale of the main indoor track at the Snow Arena - it is 50 metres wide and 460 metres from top to bottom.

Il doit se sentir bien seul.
Tom Wilson: Oh, il y en avait d'autres, mais l'endroit est énorme!
i am impressed with this Tom... it's hard to believe the size of this arena...petersmile

The Great Indoors!
Tom Wilson: Indeed - it's used year-round - people can ski in the summer!
I love how you've captured him coming into the light!

This is obviously a serious structure Tom. But I suppose snow is a serious thing in that country
Tom Wilson: Well they do have cold winters because of the continental weather system - but it is not far north: in fact this place is about the same latitude as York. Just checked further - the northernmost point in Lithuania is on about the same latitude as Stirling, in Scotland.
This is indoors?
Tom Wilson: It is indeed, Mary - used year round, and especially popular in the summer smile
an activity that i never tried, Tom. but i think the prospect of sliding down for about half a kilometer is not too bad
Tom Wilson: Nor me, Ayush - and too old to start now! I fear I'd end up with broken limbs on the beginners' track!
A snow arena--mind boggling idea...
Tom Wilson: See the support structure tomorrow, Larry, and boggle some more smile
