    Project Summary

    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.

    Special Features

    • Crib-lock walls and gabbions were used to provide support to the re-graded slopes
    • The ski slope material used is layered to create a cushioned base for a safe learning experience and is anchored to the ground using specialist ground anchors
    • Two new electrically powered Sunkid travellator lifts were installed to service the slopes
    • The facility is floodlit to allow night-time operations
    • An integrated water lubrication system is used within the slopes to deliver a more enjoyable skiing experience
    • Power and water services were brought to the slope location and a new tank and pump installed to supply the lubrication system
