Supporting the main track at the Snow Arena - an idea of scale is given by the car.  It's enormous!  There's also a longer, outdoor track for winter use.

I see your point, Tom.

To my eye this is a beautiful image...the steel structure is like a dramatic sculpture!
Tom Wilson: Those supports are 65 metres high!
It looks similar to the one in Manchester, Tom, very impressive.
Tom Wilson: The Manchester one is much smaller - its slope is only 180 metres, and 40 metres high; this one is 65 metres high and 460 metres long! The outdoor slope, starting at the same height, is 640 metres. The beginners' slope at this place is 150 metres.
Goodness - that's amazing!
Tom Wilson: It's big!

Heavens above - I don't think I've ever seen anything on this scale before Tom!
Tom Wilson: I don't think there can be many bigger indoor ski slopes anywhere, Chris!
Serious steelwork Tom!
Tom Wilson: Indeed it is! And, I guess, has to be!
I think the snow is leaking.
Tom Wilson: You might be right! But, it had been raining smile

very striking. I would be tempted to lose some of the empty space at the bottom though
Tom Wilson: I imagine that there'll be plans to use it for some purpose other than car park.
Gigantic! Good scale shot...
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Larry.
