Selby's Summit Indoor Adventure experience is starting to come to life, with two ski slopes now installed on site.
The indoor simulators are set to provide skiiers of all ages and abilities with the opportunity to have fun while improving their skills.
Cllr Dave Peart, Selby District Council’s executive member for responsibility for housing, leisure, health and culture, said, “The ski attraction is just one of the attractions that will be available to encourage people to be active and healthy in an enjoyable way.
“It’s great to see the inside of the building starting to take shape and I look forward to seeing residents enjoying this great new leisure village on their doorstep, as well as welcoming visitors from outside the district to make use of these fantastic new facilities.”
The £5.3m centre, in Scott Road, is set to open in May. It will include a six-lane 10 pin bowling facility, adventure climbing with themed climbing panels up to eight metres high, an adventure play zone with a dedicated area for babies and toddlers, aerial trekking ropes set above an indoor skate and BMX park, an outdoor skate park that has been designed following consultation with local skate park users, plus a café and restaurant.
The leisure village project is being delivered on behalf of the council by Alliance Leisure, with construction partner ISG taking the role of principal contractor. Leisure partner Inspiring healthy lifestyles will be managing the centre.
The leisure village will link to the existing Selby Leisure Centre via a new glass walkway.
Pete Burt, Managing Director of IHL (the Council's leisure provider), said, “This time last year we were celebrating the opening of the new Selby Leisure Centre and it’s great to see the continuing development of leisure facilities in the heart of the town centre. We’re delighted to be part of this exciting project.”
