Visited with The Stig and T Cake.

Bit of a day around Sheffield whilst visiting Yorkshire for the festivities. Ran into the owners of the Ski Village who called us thieves, fly tippers and the rest as well as bleeting on about how we should be wearing protective gear etc just before he went arse over tit himself lol

History
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 freestylers, such as James "Woodsy" Woods (slopestyle ski, third place in the European Winter X games, 2010/11) and Andrew Longley (freestyle moguls).
