Briton Engineering are pleased to announce the slope development plans for Kendal Ski Club. The unique Snowflex facility located in North West England will have an extension to the Snowflex area along with reshaping of the current terrain. The development work will cater for the advancement in the skill ability at the club, and provide a bigger area following the centre’s success.
The extension to the Ski area will be around what is currently the nursery slope. 650m2 will be added around the top, the outside edge and the new counter slope at the bottom. This will make the whole facility a rectangular shape and increase the slope capacity. The result will also provide a larger teaching area and a greater facility for intermediates to train on.
Terrain reshaping the will take place on the main slope. The jump and landing area will be altered following the fantastic advancement in the riders’ ability, now necessary as some freestyler’s are able to clear the landing zone. In the reshaping of the jump the bowl will also be made deeper.
Kendal ski club, a members only facility, was started by a group of enthusiasts in 1984. It has enjoyed increased popularity since development by Briton Engineering in 1997 when it was redesigned, shaped and installed with Snowflex. The club has one of the most active memberships in the UK, with a visionary board of directors. Lessons are normally booked for the whole season before it has began.
Kendal Ski Club Director, John Larkin, said “ the development work will keep Kendal Ski Club at the forefront.”
