A long-planned iconic ski slope on the side of a Danish waste-to-heat renewable energy power plant near Copenhagen is currently being laid.
The plans, which have gained worldwide publicity, were first announced back in 2011 and the plant has been operating for over a year now but it has taken some time to reach the point for the ski slope surface to be laid.
The slope, which curves around the roof of the building descending to the ground on one side is about 600 metres long with 85 metres of vertical. The slope material being used is from Italian company Neveplast.
The opening date for the slope is yet to be confirmed but it appears to be edging closer and the centre does have a name ‘CopenHill’ and a website.
This site says the slope is expected to open in December with tickets going on sale from mid-October.
Along with the ski slope the power plant will be home to the world’s tallest artificial climbing wall. The slope area is expected to be landscaped with foliage including 30 rooftop trees added.
