Me and Ben began our usual roadtrip with a fairly early start which meant arriving at our first port of call; Sheffield, with good time to spare. The sun was shining and we headed straight for the disued Ski Village with my "Skiesta" in tow....


The Ski village was believed to be one of Europes largest and played part in the training of Olympic Skiers. As well as the various training slopes, recreational slopes and varying Dendix and Snowflex surfaces there was a Quad Bike Track, a Laser Tag Centre, Downhill biking track and a state of the art Bowling Alley which was built in 2009.

A series of suspected arson attacks in Spring 2012 closed the slope and nothing remains of the main lodge building and bowling alley. The slope is decaying fast and has become a dumping site.
