Recent Sport Wales and Welsh Government research has revealed that there is a significant latent demand for snowsports in Wales, with 12% of school children (source: School Sport Survey) and 9% of adults (source: National Survey for Wales) saying that they would like to take up snowsports.

Deputy Minister for Culture, Sport and Tourism, Lord Dafydd Elis-Thomas, said: "I am delighted that we have been able to provide funding to modernise these facilities. As 2020 is Wales' Year of the Outdoors, where better to start it than by blowing off the cobwebs on a ski slope? Artificial slopes provide the ideal place for beginners to try snowsports and gain confidence."

Brian Davies, Acting Chief Executive of Sport Wales, said: "The £5m of Place for Sport funding that we were allocated by Welsh Government this time last year has been shared among more than 150 projects that will help improve facilities in around 30 different sports. Given this uptake and the demand that still exists we will continue to work with Welsh Government on ways to improve the sports facility stock across Wales."
