Save Sheffield Ski Village Petition Is Launched!

Thu 27 February 14

The recent pictures of the state of Sheffield Ski Village have brought about a call to arms to try and resurrect the facility.

Save Sheffield Ski Village Petition Is Launched!

There is currently a petition going round to rebuild the Ski Village as a Woodwood type training facility. We have signed it and hope you lot will too.
 
You only have to watch some of recent riders in Sochi to see what having a dedicatted facility like Sheffield can bring about. Jamie Nicholls learnt his trade in Halifax while  skiers Woodsy and Katie Summerhayes owe a great debt to the Ski Village. With a dedicatted halfpipe ski jump and mogul slopes it was well ahead of it's time.
 
The current plans are to turn it into housing but is that really what we need!
