2009 World Indoor Snow Guide
The World Indoor Snow Centre Guide, compiled by Patrick Thorne of Snow365 in conjunction with numerous industry experts, is a unique report that lists every indoor snow centre built – around 80 in the past 20 years, which includes those that have subsequently closed, and all the companies around the world that are involved in building them.
The World Indoor Snow Centre Guide also includes details of indoor snow centres likely to be constructed over the next five years and details the biggest, widest, highest and longest slopes and the 20+ countries which now have indoor snow centres.
The World Indoor Snow Centre Guide extends to more than 40,000 words and 250 pages and has been updated more than 60 times since the first edition in 2003.
The World Indoor Snow Centre Guide contains more than 100 images from indoor snow centres around the world. For each indoor snow centre the Guide contains a description, opening date, slope and lift details and contact information including website and address. Similar information is available on the companies that are involved in building indoor snow centres.
