For some winter sports fanatics, sitting on a chairlift is wasted time that could be better spent dominating the slopes. A team of designers in Colorado have invented the UpSki to offer skiers a fun and exciting new way to get to the top of the mountain. Sourced and assembled in the United States, the parachute harnesses the wind to take skiiers and snowboarders to the pinnacle of their favorite runs.

Comments Off on Barcelona to Build the World’s First Carbon-Neutral Indoor Ski Slope

The designers behind Ski Dubai’s artificial ski slope , Snow World and B01 Arquitectos have teamed up to improve on the original design with the world’s very first carbon-neutral indoor ski slope. If approved by Barcelona’s City Council, this new Snow World will be one component of the Zona Franca redevelopment project which aims to transform a neglected industrial complex into a thriving residential area. Both the ski dome and housing area will be powered with renewable energy while the extreme cooling necessary to maintain an artificial ski slope in a warm country will be achieved by harvesting the byproduct of converting Liquefied Natural Gas back into its gaseous form.

BIG’s Waste-to-Energy Ski Slope Incinerator Scrapped Due to Environmental Concerns

Comments Off on BIG’s Waste-to-Energy Ski Slope Incinerator Scrapped Due to Environmental Concerns

Last year, when BIG unveiled its fantastical ski resort on top of a waste-to-energy incinerator plant in Copenhagen, we were admittedly intrigued. But we weren’t at all surprised when the City of Copenhagen denied the project yesterday because they believe it will damage the climate and environment. Although the double duty concept sounded fun, in reality the incinerator plant was going to be enlarged meaning increasing the amount of trash burned and CO2 emissions released into the atmosphere. Even though the incinerator plant is desperately in need of a renovation, the city wants to encourage waste reduction, reuse and recycling instead of burning more trash and having a sexy ski slope.
