The project entailed civil works remodelling of the existing nursery slopes at the Ski Club of Ireland in Kilternan to create larger, newly graded slopes and installation of two new novice-friendly travellator lifts, one per slope.
Located one above the other the two slopes were designed to work separately or as one. The earth shaped feature dividing the slopes (locally known as the knuckle) allows for a safe learning experience for the novice while doubling as an exciting feature for advanced and freestyle skiers.
Extensive landscaping around the slopes and on the approach to the new slopes was also carried out.
The project was completed on a short 4 month time-frame during the summer closed season for the Ski Club. The facility opened in September 2011 in time for the new season.
