Disused quarry subject to Inverness snowsports vision
February 20 2019
A vision for a multi-activity snowsports centre near Inverness, including a visitor centre, café, mountain bike courses and zip wire, has been filed with The Highland Council.
An environmental impact assessment for the disused Torvean Quarry presents indicative plans conceived by Stuart Burke Associates for a series of floodlit artificial slopes, a chair lift and trails – all of which will be fully accessible to the public.
In a statement Inverness Snowsports Centre wrote: “The project may be split into several phases, but our aim is to get the first phase of the ISC built and open during 2021. The second phase would follow 2-3 years later once the viability of the ISC was proven.”
Detailed design work is dependent on further fundraising and feasibility studies to fully appraise the phased project.
A total capital cost for the project has been set at between £3-£5m.
