New owner for Braehead SNOzone

06 Jan 2012

The Ice Factor Group has acquired SNOzone, Britain’s longest indoor ski slope at Xscape, Braehead.

The new owners, who run the Ice Factor Mountaineering Centre at Kinlochleven, plan to make significant investment into the facility which initially cost £32 million. The company plans to create an indoor ice climbing wall and improve the facilities at Britains longest indoor ski slope.

The Ice Factor also plan to open a new ice climbing centre in Inverness and  a similar facility at Burlington, Vermont in the USA.

Work has already started at Braehead where there will be only small changes until after the end of the current ski season.
