According to this report from the BBC planning officials from Sheffield City Council have recommended that the £80m Snow Mountain development is given the go-ahead.
Snow Mountain will be the home to the most innovative indoor real snow experience in Europe, with its revolutionary designed slopes Sheffield Ski Village will become one of the leading tourist destinations in the UK.
The Snow Arena brings the mountains to urban living, with its 300m long by 100m wide piste, it will be the most advanced snow dome in the country. Not only will there be green and red runs, but for the less faint hearted there will be gullies, huge rock outcrops, a half pipe and grind rails.
The proposed Snow Hall is 195,000sqft, 300m long, 100m wide and has a vertical “drop” of nearly 70m.
A Swiss engineered gondola cableway will link the Sheffield Ski Village site with Langsett road Supertram base station in the city centre and then to shirecliffe which will be the terminus. The cable car will be linked to the tram, bus and road network.
