At 700m long with a 135m vertical, Skipark 360 in Stockholm will easily become the longest indoor slope in the World, and work is due to begin in 2013

Designed by CF Møller Architects it will be located in Balsta - 45 minutes outside Stockholm and along with the slope there will also be a 3.5km indoor tunnel suitable for cross country skiing and other pretty pointless pursuits. Standing 135m high,  it becomes one of Sweden's largest buildings.

The 70,000 square metre facility will also house restaurants, shops, spa, hotel and conference facilities with panoramic views

It is planned to begin construction in 2013/14 and should take 2 years to build
