Last month, BOYNE Racing received a large anonymous donation earmarked for the creation of a new training area. This space will enable the team to practice year round in comfort.
The indoor ski hill, very similar to the one pictured below, will be cooled to 24 degrees, even on the hottest August day.
Christopher Herrmann, a BOYNE Racing coach, was almost in tears when he found out, “I just can’t believe that I will be coaching 12 months a year.”
The hill was designed by architects from Dubai, familiar with other similar construction projects. The indoor resort will feature a 60-meter high indoor mountain with 5 slopes of varying steepness and difficulty, including a 400-meter-long run, the world’s first indoor black run. A quad lift and a tow lift will carry skiers up the mountain.
Adjoining the slopes will be a 3,000-square-meter Snow Park play area comprising sled and toboggan runs, climbing towers, a snowball shooting gallery, an ice cave and a 3D theater. Other attractions will include a mirror maze and a snowman-making area.
Ground-breaking is expected in May, 2030
