New ski slope proposed

A new ski slope and ski run are planned for the Snowsports Centre in Garthdee.

Members of Aberdeen City Council’s Development Management Sub-committee will consider a planning application for the site when they meet on Thursday, September 27.

A new ski slope, about 68 metres long and at a 15 degree angle is proposed, along with three ski ‘stations’ and the ski lift which would have a number of tow hanger lifts, each designed to carry one person.

The application has been recommended for approval.
