Snow Arena

 

The Snow Arena from the town centre - about a kilometre away as the crow flies.  Note the extensive mistletoe on the trees - many of the trees in the town had masses of it.

Maybe my town will build a snow arena...
Tom Wilson: Would you need one? All you have to do is pop over to Colorado smile

It is an imposing structure, even from a distance.

All that mistletoe would seem to give you justification for dashing about and kissing gals, Tom.
Tom Wilson: Imposing indeed! And, as for the second comment - I managed to restrain myself smile
It looks as though FaceBook has sponsored it...
We have a bit of a mistletoe problem here - in our Junipers.
Tom Wilson: Independence Day is what comes to mind!
Looks like an invasion of a star wars machine, Tom.
Tom Wilson: As I said to Elizabeth - Independence Day smile

A lot of mistletoe in this area, Tom - great balls of it
Tom Wilson: Lots and lots in the birch trees.
The only place where I saw mistletoe like that was in Budapest, Tom. It amazed me.
Tom Wilson: A quite astonishing amount!

Presumably the place gets very busy when the season - whenever that is - for ski training arrives?
Tom Wilson: I understand that it is very busy in the summer holiday season, as well as in the winter - but it functions year round.

That 'thumbs up'. Looks almost like it is sponsored by Face Book...... as a likey....
I think this place will be more crowded over the winter season.

Worcestershire is great mistletoe country Tom
Tom Wilson: I understand it is farmed for the Christmas season in some places - is Worcestershire one of them?
It must be constant kissing on the pavement Tom.
Tom Wilson: Only in the season!

Star Wars, yes and crowned by Facebook. I have yet to see mistletoe for real.
Tom Wilson: It's usually on sale here at Christmas, but I've never seen as much as you see here in the wild!
I have never seen a snow arena. Quite a thing!
Tom Wilson: It's a huge attraction - and the mayor was thought to be mad when he decided it should be built!

Pretty large construction isn't it.
Tom Wilson: It's a biggie
