€62m Indoor Ski Slope for Alps to Combat Climate Change


The ski resort of Tignes in the Alps is to build a €62 million indoor ski slope to combat the effects of climate change.

The resort used to be able to offer visitors snow sports 365 days a year, but the 30 per cent reduction in the glacier due to global warming has meant a reduced season in recent years.

The 400m indoor ski slope will be the focal point of a hub of attractions including and indoor wave pool together with retail and hotel developments.

The slope will be powered by hydroelectricity from the town’s dam, solar panels on the roof and a biomass boiler.
