Team GB snow sports could have a new home in the South Wales valleys if an ambitious plan for a major sports and leisure complex goes ahead, writes Andy Weltch.
The team behind the proposed Rhydycar West active tourism, sport and leisure resort in Merthyr Tydfil, is starting the pre-application consultation (PAC) this month (April 2022), with the planning application to be submitted afterwards.
The all-year-round indoor resort will include one of Europe’s longest indoor snow centres, already cited as a potential home for Team GB snow sports, Snow Sport Wales, and the UK ‘centre of excellence’ for snow sports.
It will also have hotels and woodland lodges as a base for visitors to explore the nearby Brecon Beacons National Park and the Valleys.
The Rhydycar West team says it will also complement and extend the emerging adventure tourism economy by offering an all-year-round leisure facility – “where the great outdoors meets the great indoors”.
During the 28 day PAC period, the Rhydycar West team will be organising online and digital exhibition events and taking questions and feedback.
There’s more information on the website www.rhydycarwest.com, and in this video.
