    I'm not sure if this even counts as an explore anymore to be honest. Don't get me wrong, the initial reaction when we first saw the slew of ski related rubble draped over a Sheffield hill, was a pretty good one. The scale of it was pretty cool, and it's not something you see every day (unless you live in Sheffield).

    But after wondering around for a bit and climbing to the top, there really isn't much else to see or do, apart from roll a tire down the slope.

    Still, was a good day, interesting to see whats left, and there was a tent there with some clothes and food outside it that kinda creeped us out.



    Some info on the place...

    Sheffield Ski Village was an artificial ski slope complex in the Parkwood Springs area of Sheffield, England until destroyed by fire in 2012. It was believed to be the largest artificial ski resort in Europe with a sports shop, bar, restaurant and a range of slopes which include a Snowflex nursery slope, a dendix recreational slope and a freestyle park consisting of a half pipe, hip jump, kicker, a quarter pipe and various grind rails. The Sheffield Ski Village was also one of the main training grounds for the Yorkshire Freestyle Squad and many professional freestyle skiers.

    Since the initial fire, the site has remained closed to the public aside from a brief attempt by the Sharks Ski Club to hold sessions in May 2012, which were stopped when the ski lift motors and power ancillaries were stolen. The site has stood derelict and has been blighted by significant fly tipping, theft and vandalism ever since.
