The Swedish branch of C. F. Møller Architects, in collaboration with Berg Arkitektkontor, has designed ’s new, spectacular skiing attraction, Skipark 360°, the world’s most complete indoor ski park with a 700 m long downhill slope and a drop of 160 m, making it the only indoor ski slope in the world to meet the requirements for hosting the World Cup.

At a height of approx. 135 m, it will be one of Sweden’s largest buildings, and will become a landmark in the forest landscape just outside Stockholm. Construction of the ca. 1.5-2 billion Swedish kroner project is expected to start at the turn of 2013/2014.

In addition to the downhill run, the complex will also contain a 3.5 km cross-country skiing tunnel, an arena for biathlon, ice hockey, bandy and figure skating, and a snow park for snowboarding. There will also be restaurants, shops, a spa and hotel and conference facilities, offering panoramic views of the countryside.

    Looks sensational.
    One question, how does something 135m high have a drop of 160m, unless it goes underground and the pictures do not show this.

    Looks heavy and clumsy to me…no elegance to the structure at all.

    Makes me wonder what someone like Calatrava could do with a project like this.

    The more we ski inside, the less we can ski outside! Temperatures are rising, global warming etc! Do you like to take a downhill?
