A chill time coming to Middlesbrough
SubZero, the upcoming indoor ski centre being developed in Middlesbrough, is set to combine indoor snow play, retail, and leisure under one roof – the first venue of its kind in the North East.
The £30m development, built on a seven-acre site at Middlehaven, will feature two ski slopes – a 52 x 50 metre nursery slope for beginners and a main slope spanning 165 x 30 metres for more accomplished skiers and boarders, as well as other activities such as sledging.
A range of other leisure facilities are being proposed including a snow bar, an ice bar, indoor skydiving, a bowling alley, a trampoline park, soft play area, climbing wall and a gym together with associated retail as well as restaurants and cafes. Plans to enhance the location’s water facilities on the surrounding dock area with a cable ski and unit surf pool are also being considered.
Middlesbrough Council have invested £10 million to ensure direct access onto the main trunk road network as well as transform the footbridge between the Riverside Stadium and Temenos into a state-of-the-art road bridge.
