    Bit of history ive stolen here ;)

    Sheffield Ski Village is an artificial ski slope complex in the Parkwood Springs area of Sheffield, England. It is 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 is also one of the main training grounds for the Yorkshire Freestyle Squad and many professional freestylers, such as James "Woodsy" Woods (slopestyle ski, third place in the European Winter X games, 2010/11) and Andrew Longley (freestyle moguls).

    On 29 April 2012, the main building of the Ski Village was destroyed by a fire. The blaze occurred in the early hours of the morning and no-one was injured. On 1 May 2012, a small hut containing controls for the ski lifts was destroyed in a second fire in the early hours of the morning. It is not thought that either fire was started deliberately. Today, the site remains abandoned and the remaining assets are destroyed bit by bit by the locals. Plans for a new indoor ski facility have not progressed and it is rumoured that the owner has now sold the site anyway.
