Andrzej Pietrzak - Feb 2016
Would love an option to snowboard locally rather than the current 1.30hr round trip to go to Xscape. Sheffield at the moment only has one ski equipment specialist store and the revival of the ski village could bring more stores/jobs/opportunities into the city. I would personally love to see the development of the snowboarding scene in my local communtiy
William Kestle - Feb 2016
We need this bringing back!

The ski village needs to get rebuilt and re opened it was awesome and something needs to be done to get this re opened I wouldn't mind but a business man with the financial power to rebuild it would earn a fortune from it
Chris lawson - Jan 2016
This skislope was one of the greatest assets Sheffield had it's loss and the failure to rebuild the fantastic facilities is a crime. (But probably not the most serious crime associated with the whole sorry affair). What a loss to the people and pride of Sheffield.
Roger Cardwell - Jan 2016

Brett Baker - Jan 2016
I learnt how to board at Sheffield in the early 90s, tues & sun evenings were the best fun ever, the boarding community was the best ever. Gutted to find out all these years later it fails to exist, good luck in your endeavors
Ann Wheeldon - Jan 2016
I love love to be able to ski and hate having to look so far to travel, we already have so many other sports, lets bring skiing back
Debbie Pearson - Dec 2015
This would put Sheffield on the map in teh snowsports scene. I used the slopes in the 90's and developed a passion for skiing because of it. I now want to bring my kids but have to venture to an indoor arena which just isn't the same, especially in the middle of a shopping centre.
Simon Haigh - Dec 2015
I had snowboarding here in my school days, I fell in love with snowboarding and continued to go to the Ski Village every weekend. It's a shame seeing the site in its current state, a place I and many others spent many hours of enjoyment is now derelict. The city has lost a great attraction but I hope to be on the slopes once more in the near future.
William Syked - Dec 2015
Such a great facility that deserves to be used. Also a potential major attraction for Sheffield.
Michael Rowlatt - Dec 2015
Sheffield needs snow-sport facilities, the Ski Village is sadly missed as there was and still is nothing like it in the area. I learned to snowboard in Sheffield, and would love to take my family to learn too. Fingers crossed this campaign is a success.
Marc Wallis - Nov 2015
My dad rode this halfpipe whenever he passed by Sheffield in the 90's was the only half-pipe in the uk, an all year round facility to "home-grow" & hone young talent.. without it we lose a lot of budding sportspeople & fitness. Bring it back!

Ciaran tucker - Jun 2015
Will never forget the look on my mum's face as she came down the toboggan rung ace first. We should give all older people the opportunity to provide entertainment for others.
Anthony O'rourke - Jun 2015
As a family we ski once a year, we used to ski twice a week. Sheffield had the only half pipe in Britain the snodomes cannot recreate this type of feature. It helped many of our top snowsports athletes develop their skills, but above all was a fantastic friendly place for young people to have fun. A lot of money could be made by building housing on the site and no one should be homeless, but people need something todo as well as somewhere to live. if as a country wehow can it have been allowed to ing a

that place used to be my life!
Lawrie Campbell - Jan 2015
used by universities in Sheffield, Leeds + colleges and schools as it used to be.
Jane Lomas - Jan 2015
Should never have been allowed to close
David Hawkins - Jan 2015
Great idea. Don't give up!
John Walsh - Jan 2015
First learnt to snowboard here many years and never done it since due to lack of facilities locally. Good luck to getting this project going! I would certainly use this (and hopefully be able to introduce my son when he is old enough)
John Elvin - Jan 2015
Vital leisure complex for up and coming Yorkshire talent
Richard Clarke - Jan 2015
LOVED this place during the 2000's, breaks your heart to not only see it burnt down but now being considered for flats??? Shame on you Sheffield, BUILD IT AND THEY WILL COME.
Simon Mellor - Jan 2015
Would love to see this open again.
Jason Wells - Jan 2015
Totally behind the re opening of the slope. I

Re-establishing Sheffield as the Snowsport Centre for the U.K. is a win / win situation.
Lesley Singer - Jan 2015
Its very sad to see the condition of what was once a great facility. Sheffield was the sporting home of so many Team GB's winter Olympians at Sochi!!
Martin Singer - Jan 2015

Get it up and running
Matt Wood - Dec 2014
the more indoor slopes in the UK the better.
will wohlman - Dec 2014
It's a must.
Gavin - Dec 2014
Save SSV for future generations! It made a lot of our current greats...Jamie Nichols for example
Sara Simpson - Dec 2014
Should be the future of UK Snowsports!
Andrew Simpson - Dec 2014
The ski village is an important part of Sheffields sporting heritage , everytime I see the brown sign I get sad that the place I had such great times and learnt to ski has fallen into such disrepair
Jack John Wood - Dec 2014
I learnt to ski here at University back in the 1990s. It was such a fabulous facility and an advert for the city.
John Hopkins - Dec 2014
Some investment up north would be nice!
george - Dec 2014
All best wishes and support to you in your fight to re-establish this unique and much needed facility.
Anna - Dec 2014
dry slopes are a valuable resource for communities health and well-being
francesca - Dec 2014
I would love to be able to use the facilities again. A massive loss to the community :(
Richard Spence - Nov 2014
I used to visit every Sunday when I was a child and loved to come, now having children of my own I would live to be able to bring them to use this facility as it formally was.
Chris Moody - Nov 2014
You have my support!
Ivik Masek - Nov 2014
This is where I learned to ski, please keep the centre open
Andrea Howard - Nov 2014
Great venue and shame to see its demise. Lets hope Sheffield has once again a great ski village to be proud of.
Mark Leyshon - Nov 2014
Long live the legacy of the ski-village and allow it breed the next set of future athletes for Britain
Zvi - Oct 2014
AMAZING place, trained here for many years from stoke on trent such an aweful site now! Lets get this rebuilt!
richard s - Oct 2014
Awsome !!
Sam Daubney - Sep 2014
I learnt to snowboard here and would like to see this area turned into an indoor snowdome
Kevin Reaney - Sep 2014
Damn shame that this has gone, this put Sheffield on the map as a centre for winter sports worldwide. Bring it back!
David Parker - Sep 2014
Ski Village was always hampered by poor access and a sense of exclusivity. A new centre needs to attract a wider demographic.
Matt Roddison - Sep 2014
Good project, indoor snow centre is what is needed and enough facility to make day-trippers happy to stay. Small scale can't be supported by the local community alone
Mark - Sep 2014
snowsports for sheffield :)
hannah elliott - Aug 2014
Would love to see ski village back as a destiation for the people of sheffield, a hub for freestyle skiing and something for us all to be proud of
Sam Elliott - Aug 2014
I learned to ski at Sheffield back in the 90s and it was excellent. This facility needs to be rebuilt so more people can have the joy of skiing.
Diarmuid Coyle - Aug 2014
Sheffield Ski Village gave me a sport that previously I could only dream of.
Elaine Shortridge - Aug 2014
Bring the ski village back!
Joanna small - Aug 2014
A facility that Sheffield could benefit from hugely.
jane grant - Aug 2014
So sad to find out my cherished teenage memories had been burned by some selfish idiots
Tim Wright - Jul 2014
Sheffield ski village was great. Its such a shame it go so badly rundown. I had a membership for around 8 years. I went uni and now i'm back there's nowhere to go. I remember seeing Katie Summerhayes,James Woods and Jamres Machon all laerning there. Jamie Nichols used to come down when it was at its prime.I know i talked about the ski village a lot but any place that has a freestyle section will do for me.The funpark is the main attraction, especially for young boarders and skiers.
Liam Sproson - Jul 2014

Liam Sproson - Jul 2014
Its such a shame that the Ski Village has gone to ruin, i doubt Sheffield council will want to help this campaign, they are very anti sport. They lied about the closure of Don Valley, it was not due to lack of funding but back handing and millions of pounds coming their way for the land! I don't know who owns the land where the ski village is, however if it's the councils land they won't let it go to the community for nothing. If a develop wants it they will sell it to line their greedy pockets no matter what is on there.
Elizabeth Maher - Jul 2014
do it do it now
Ross burrell - Jul 2014
My kids learned to ski here, I spent many fantastic ours on these slopes and now that I mountain bike I am really excited about the cross platform opportunities such as a bike uplift. I am sure there are more sports that could be included too.
Mark Partridge - Jul 2014
I visited the ski village every week and I'm gutted that it closed. It's even worse that it's been vandalised. We need snow-sport in Sheffield.
Holly taylor - Jul 2014
I would love it to come back, all my sons were taught here and miss it so much!
Roy Blakemore - Jul 2014
So sad :(
Christian Gialluca - Jul 2014
Much better skiing at Sheffield than in a shed !
Helen O'Brien - Jul 2014
Bring it back!
Dave Audin - Jul 2014
Bring it back!!
Jake partridge - Jun 2014
Legendary breeding ground for the best UK talent, needs to be reborn, perhaps even the first indoor in the UK with a permanent park ;)
Guy Seddon - Jun 2014
let's give our young ski hopefuls a place to train in South Yorkshire
Karen Purnell - Jun 2014

Mohammed younis - Jun 2014
A great place for kids to experience skiing. Would love for it to return.
Ruth greaves - Jun 2014
So sad to see the place I first set foot in skis in such a mess.
Mary Garwood - Jun 2014
Re-instate the Ski village! so many people out there have a strong passion for the slopes, why deprive the future of the opportunities that the village can bring?
Joseph Wilkinson - Jun 2014
The ski village in sheffield was amazing and it was a huge loss, as a snowboarder who lives in Sheffield, if it was re-built, I would happily go there every other day to practice, we need this back
Sarah Hughes-Lawson - Jun 2014
A great cause, nothing better for a city than having a facility to inspire younger generations!
James Smith - Jun 2014
Love to see this up and running again
Martin baxter - Jun 2014
Dry slopes need as much help as they can get!
Beth - Jun 2014
That's a shame, you can never have anything nice particularly in a deprived area!
Yasmin Jensen - Jun 2014
Dry slopes around the UK have demonstrated their ability to adapt to new adrenaline snowsports. This exciting initiative offers excellent prospects across all freestyle and adrenaline sports, and as a (sports) community based project deserves every support.
Paul Fynn - Jun 2014
Keep up the great work guys!
Danielle Estcourt - Jun 2014
i miss this place! i learnt to board here with susc
david mason - Jun 2014
As someone who learnt at Hillend outside Edinburgh, I know the value of dry ski slopes; this one especially needs to be saved.
Peter Walker - Jun 2014
Great Cause.
Lucy Allen - Jun 2014
This is a chance for Olympians to give somethng back, I hope that they raise awareness. It was something that made Sheffield unique.
Ross Lima - Jun 2014
Such possibility lying unused, hopefully we'll see this unique resource restored one day.
Drew - Jun 2014
UK ski teams need a place like this to train and excel without having to leave the country constantly; there is potential for a professional training facility to be reestablished.
Michaela Chapman - Jun 2014
Bring back the shred!
Adam - Jun 2014
Terrible loss, don't replace this valuable public space with housing.
Dave Hayden - May 2014
Building houses where there used to a platform for future athletes is tragic!

Snowsport For Sheffield!
alex shutler - May 2014
Sheffield ski village was a centre of excellence for winter sports, two university's in the local area used it, not to mention half of our winter athletes from the Sochi games came from Sheffield or the surrounding area.
Samuel Watson - May 2014
Sheffield is the Outdoor Capital of the UK. It needs a ski slope and a good 'un at that!
John Horscroft - May 2014
Everybody sign this!! As if the government still neef convincing to invest in uk Snowsports
Benjamin Grant - May 2014
This was such a fantastic facility, snowsports shouldn't be a niche market, reserved only for those with transport and money to get further afield. The ski village got young kids into it and produced some amazing freestylers competing for our country, if we keep leaving this soon there wont be anything left to fix and we'll have lost an amazing snowsports centre
Katherine Grafton-Reed - May 2014
Sheffield needs this facility
Elizabeth Laycock - May 2014
Sheffield ski village used to rule the north, bring back our treasured facility!
Lawrie campbell - May 2014
Alasdair Grant - May 2014
Let's do this!
Catalina Walker - May 2014
Loved going here as a child and would like to see it remade
Jonny Powell - May 2014
The Ski Village was an incredible place, it was the reason I moved to Sheffield as a student and the reason I stayed after graduating. It had such a strong sense of community. I think if the slope of Bearsden in Glasgow was looked to for influence a very successful facility could be recreated at the site.
Steve Fletcher - May 2014
It's sad to see a ski center go.
Chloe - May 2014
No brainer
Oliver Tucker - May 2014
I learnt to ski at Sheffirld Ski Village and now have two beautiful children who I would like to have the same opportunity.
Helen Dulake - May 2014
Such a shame to let this go the same as Don Valley.
Carol - May 2014
This is a great chance to re develop and re launch the ski village. National and local visits, the local area will benefit and will give youth another option away from the streets.
Joe Hartley - May 2014

New slope, new ski stars, new generation of healthy youngsters ! Build for the future
Maureen Kay - May 2014
Please bring snow sports back to Sheffield. Sheffield is sporting centre of excellence and Sheffield athletes achieved great things in Sochi, which Sheffield Ski Village made possible. It is a travesty that Sheffield no longer has a snowsports facility and that local winter sports fans have to travel 50 minutes to the nearest facilities.
Kimberley Robinson - May 2014
The Ski Village needs to be re opened
Stefan Hall - May 2014
I learned how to snowboard here over 20 years ago, be great to see it back.
Lee Mangham - Apr 2014

Pauline Braithwaite - Apr 2014
Keep the slopes open! One of the best things to happen to Sheffield!!!
David Baker - Apr 2014
The ski village was treasured by sheffielders and other people from further afield. Now we have to make a 35 min ride to spend our money at xscape in Leeds instead of pumping our money into Sheffield's economy. Ludicrous
Adrian keeling - Apr 2014
Let's get this site back up and running and make it better than it was
Chris Dwyer - Apr 2014
i was a snowboard instructor in the earlydays and would love to ride theslopes again it was great for sheffield and is sorely missed by alot of local ski and boarders in sheffield
nigel pert - Apr 2014
Miss going up there, it would be a such a massive loss if it went permanently. Surely we can do something?
Simon Temple - Apr 2014
Great idea! seems wasteful to let the area be turned into characterless flats. Especially when there are perfect ground levels to support either developing skiers/boarders or professional skiers/boarders.
Robert Rhodes - Apr 2014
I'm in.
Louise perkins - Apr 2014
Many happy memories
Alistair Wilkinson - Apr 2014
Make it happen. Please.
Gregory smith - Apr 2014
I used to take my university team here training every Wednesday, some of the best days I've ever had. I would love to see it back and the university club (trent snowsports) will return to using it as their number 1 training centre.
Rupert Cawte - Apr 2014
I helped build the original SSV and it would be great to see the phoenix rise from the ashes!
Andrew Eaton - Apr 2014
I learned to ski at Sheffield Ski Village and if it had not been there for me my recent trip to Alto Campoo in Cantabria would have been a very frustrating experience however, the dry slopes at Sheffield had prepared me so very well that Spanish snow was a doddle, no problem. It was a fantastic resource for all ages and styles of snow sport providing a healthy alternative to boredom, drugs and booze which is the curse of modern times for our young population. If it were to go to the demon developers it would be an unforgivable betrayal of our society by all who, it would appear, are hell bent on helping themselves.
Malco Calvo - Apr 2014
We need snow sports back in Sheffield. For example; for future athletes to be born, as an alternative recreation activity and jobs for Shefield.
Katie Scott - Apr 2014
Our kids are missing an amazing opportunity
Rob - Apr 2014
I would love my kids to learn snow sports locally!

If I had the money or the guts I'd rebuild it myself .any help you need I'm up for it . Spent many happy hours watching the kids grow up there . Fabulous
Sue tideswell - Apr 2014
We just can't let this not happen. Simple.
Paul Chapman - Apr 2014
Amazing site, don't let idiots dictate our future. SSV will rejuvenate all of South Yorkshire and provide a place to go for the kids of today
Josh - Apr 2014
This is where I started my love for the sport - It is very sad that Sheffield wont re develop this place as it would be a very positive asset to the city - and it would definately be worth the investment if done properly!
Lucianne Marshall - Apr 2014
Open the ski village loads of people want it
Ash keeling - Apr 2014

Adrian Carey - Mar 2014
I have been involved in snow sports my entire life and I have skied at Sheffield many times in fact I have skied nearly every dry slope in England and Wales and fully understand the importance of these centres and fully endorse the committee trying to get Sheffield Ski Village back open and operating again.
Brian Evans - Mar 2014
Bring it back it was an absolute asset and could really help turn Sheffield around from this slump
Stephanie Cooper - Mar 2014
A much needed resource to ensure future champions and keep young people fit

Ryan - Mar 2014
Shame that Sheffield CC appear to show no aspiration on sport - closing of the Don Valley Stadium, no support for the ski village
Howard Leberman - Mar 2014
miss this place so much and the talent that came from the ski village shows how much it needs reopening.
Lee Astley - Mar 2014
Ski Sheffield - this has to be a sports concept that will keep sheffield on the map, along with indoor EIS!
Jacki Sheriff - Mar 2014
I'd def do snowboarding lessons if Sheff brought back ski/snowboarding facilities. Come on!! You know you want to. Let's get this project up and running.
James Wraith - Mar 2014
open the ski centre so my brother can go and snowboard and leave me alone about it.
Lawrence Jackson - Mar 2014
Crying shame the ski village isn't being used. There must be some wealthy sporting bankers who could invest out there somewhere
Toby - Mar 2014
sheffield needs all the investment it can get
Mark Naylor - Mar 2014
learned to ski here with Greenhill Primary when i was 9. I spent many hours, school nights weekend and holidays trying to become the first James Woods. Currently part if University snowports club trying to get more people into freestyle skiing at Liverpool. Would love to see more competition skiing available in the UK and Sheffield was (and still is) the prefect place for it
James Walker - Mar 2014
Learned to ski here when I was 12, now 26 with 5 seasons under my belt, currently working at Whistler Blackcomb.
Oliver Wilson - Mar 2014
England cannot afford to loose yet another major snowsport facility. Sheffield has shown in the past what can be achieved at a good centre and must continue to do so in the future. The best way forward is probably to follow the example of Rossendale and set up a Community Enterprise to own and run it. A sound facilities strategy from Snowsport England should support such an enterprise.
Alan Jones - Mar 2014
Sheffield deserves a slope, kick out pullan and get started
Julie Westgate - Mar 2014
Its vital to rebuild, without Rossendale I would never have snowboarded 15 years ago. Dry slopes are a must!
Edward Beese - Mar 2014
This is a must for sport in GB
Mike King - Mar 2014
Used to instruct at SSV until moving away in 2005, great facility and atmosphere, such a shame to see the current state.

Gavin - Mar 2014
It is a sin to see such a magnificent facility in ruins
Liz McFarlane - Mar 2014
I do believe that it is vitally important that this extremely important facility is preserved. It has provided an opportunity for so many of our young skiers and snowboarders, resulting in remarkable success at the recent winter Olympics.
Stephen Holmes - Mar 2014
After the success in Sochi this year we need to reinstate this important training facility for the UK'S young skiers
Diane Holmes - Mar 2014
Sochi showed what the right resources can produce - let put the facilities in place for the next generation of Olympians.
Anne Johnson - Mar 2014
Love the Ski Village, it was the best thing about Sheffield, it was a fantastic community-based scene that young and old could enjoy, please rebuild!
Steven Martin Fletcher - Mar 2014
Home of british freestyle
rhod thomas - Mar 2014
It was visiting Sheffield ski village for a winter party event that completely inspired me to get in to snowboarding, this venue has to be saved. Not every brownfield site in Britain needs to become souless claustrophobic housing, people also like stuff to do!
Ashley Moscrop - Mar 2014
reopen it, such a shame to see it as it is now.
Richard Higgs - Mar 2014
Don't loose the Sochi momentum; the Snowsport Centre is a fantatstic facility and provideds so much good. Don't lose it.

Charlotte - Mar 2014
Bring our ski village back from the dead.
It is really refreshing to see a community come together to prove those cynicists who would stand by and see the ski village rot wrong! We miss the ski village and what It brought to the city and community so much. I dare say it was a pull factor to both universities amongst some of the alumni who resided in sheffield before the beloved dry slope burnt down.

I never got the chance to snowboard here. I tried to take it up a couple of years ago but had to travel to Castleford. So now I just look longingly out of my window and at my board.
Jodie Zephyr - Mar 2014
This has been a sleeping giant for the city for 15 yrs or more. This could be the best facility in the uk and bring much needed visitors to the great city of Sheffield. I really hope the council will get behind this!!!
Steve t - Mar 2014
We need this, sheffield is a sporting city make it happen
Terence Dunkerley - Mar 2014
Growing up in sheffield I had the opportunity to utilise the original Ski Village to follow my passion for skiing. It allowed me to practice and enhance my skills and technique on a weekly basis rather than having to wait a full 12 months to the next European trip. Skiing has provided me with a lifetime of exhilarating thrills, adrenaline filled runs and given me a love of the mountains. I am now ready to pass this onto my 5 year old son, I want it to be something he can participate in weekly and grow and develop in the hope he has the same love for the sport as I do. To be able to take every opportunity to have good solid coaching with a structured route to recognised qualifications and to meet new friends that share the same passion
Richard C - Mar 2014
Would be great to have a ski facility back in this city
Peter Henry - Mar 2014
Would love to get involved in the regeneration of the ski village, and would gladly volunteer to help. Regards Ash.

Nathan West - Mar 2014
Please get the ski village back up and running. I live in Derbyshire and went there with 5 of my friends every week. People from a lot further afield would travel there for all it had to offer. Snow sports are now one of the fastest growing sports so it's a no brainier to invest in.
Rob greasley - Mar 2014
bring it back
steven - Mar 2014
We need a place to create more champions
James Fulson - Mar 2014
Sheffield being the 4th largest city, we need and deserve to have a facility that is second to none, we should develop this site to become one of the largest in skie Europe and also install the cables cars from eccl road to the sheff uni and then onto the ski village complex, it will regenerate the whole area, bring restaurants and bars in to make use of the maxing views you get from the top.

Lee Townend - Mar 2014
I met my husband at the ski village, he learned to board there, I learned to ski there, my son had his first ski lesson there - whilst we are lucky to be able to go skiing once a year - I would love to give my 8 year old the opportunities that many others had in Sheffield and get to ski on the regular basis (and NO Castleford is not easy or financially viable for most families on a regular basis).

Claire Thomas - Mar 2014
I learnt there, went on to do a couple of seasons in BC. Now have kids and have to take them to Castleford to learn the basics where we could have done this in Sheffield where we live. Build a MTB donwhill circuit around it with a lift and encourage year round usage

My children exercised and had fun there 2 days a week, we miss it and the community spirit there was.
Jane Harper - Mar 2014
It is a scandal that the ski village is no longer used. Not only should it be an actively used resource, but it is a land mark, and one that we should be proud of. It is currently impossible to be proud of it.
Michael Trikic - Mar 2014
So important to keep these slopes going, what elase is there for kids and athletes to train on if these slopes disappear? Plas y Brenin is another one we are desperately trying to re-open. There is so much enthusiasm, we have so little opportunies in this country, lets keep wh

Sheffield has a great history in promoting youth sport, back to the World student games. The closure of the ski village removed a great asset. I like many others learnt to ski there and any attempt to replace it should be supported. How do can I help?
Andy Nash - Mar 2014

sam darwin - Mar 2014
Liverpool needs one too!!
Gary Callister - Mar 2014
Turn the ski village back to its former glory for future generations to enjoy. There was also going to be a down hill mountain bike section running alongside the slopes with a ski lift to help assist back to top. This in my opinion publicised will see hundreds of mountain bikes flock alongside the ski enthusiast to create a successful viable buisness. If heads where put together they could even be a long zip wire that could include some outdoor pursuit centre aswell. If designed correctly rather than just purely a ski village to appeal to more this could realy take off.
Lyndon Webster - Mar 2014
The Ski village should be restored, it was and can be again an asset to the local area
Kris Dixon - Mar 2014
Sheffield slopes should be used
Deborah Grunwerg - Mar 2014
Many of Britain's current best snowsports athletes, including the few that are world beating, the first time Britain has ever been able to say that in winter sports, have Sheffield Ski village to thank for their success.

Can't begin to imagine how many school pupils benefitted from their ski/snowboard experiences at the village. I still get news of my ex-pupils enjoying the snow somewhere in the world! All due to the accessibility of the ski village. Wake up Sheffield, we are the city of sport.....aren't we?
Would hate to see it destroyed!

Phil Wye - Mar 2014
Having learnt to ski in Sheffield, myself and my wife became avid skiers. Night-time sliding 'above' the city lights was always a unique experience - immeasurably more uplifting than the sterile experience available on the ‘fridge’ slopes. Let’s get it back on-line ASAP…

chris jones - Mar 2014
It was boss
Matt - Mar 2014
Sheffield was and should be the sporting hub of freestyle skiing and snowboarding. Indoor slopes were not wholly responsible for the development of UK talent. Slopes like Sheffield, Halifax and Rossendale were key in developing the freestyle culture.
Sam Marfleet - Mar 2014
Learnt to ski here, needs to stay as nowhere outdoor to ski close by at all
Adam Eamonson - Mar 2014
We need places like this if we are going to compete against the mountain nations. Woodsy has shown we can, but we need to build for the future
Faye Charlesworth - Mar 2014
At the moment it is an eyesore as you approach Penistone road from Crookes. I would love to see the Ski Village reopen for young and older like myself to enjoy. This would benefit so many people from all over the country, not just Sheffield and surrounding areas.
Caroline Appleyard - Mar 2014
Heard the radio 4 programme. The link between facilities and success in games , let alone all the positive health benefits on people and community, is obvious. Why else would so many people from one area be winners.?
Viv Gilbert - Mar 2014
The only reason britain has produced any top skiiers abd ski instructors is because of places like Sheffield ski village, don't close it down, make it better!
michael westhead - Mar 2014

I learned to ski up on vale road when the ski village first opened and was ran from a set of mobile offices. And then (as a firefighter) witnessed it go up in flames. Such good memories lost.

Mtb is becoming a bigger sport every year and maximising the trails that we have is the only way that it'll keep on growing. Not to mention its gets more people out of the house and active
Josh shelton - Mar 2014
This will make an exceptional venue for all gravity assisted sports. It would also make a fantastic venue for the British Downhill Series to use once a year, giving them a venue to use in England instead of Wales and Scotland. If the infrastructure was in place it could possibly be a world cup venue too.
Charles lamley - Mar 2014

James Heaton - Mar 2014
Sheffield = Snowsports!
Byron Haywood-Alexander - Mar 2014
Sheffield ski village deserves the opportunity to be a part of the community again; a place for children and adults alike to have fun. It should not have to remain in the sorry state it is in currently, standing as a beacon of hope for arsonists, reminding them that their actions can have devastating and irreversible effects.
Katherine Godfrey - Mar 2014
There is so much potential to build a great slope/snowdome on that hill! Sheffield should have something to compete with Chill Factore and Castleford Snowdome!

NJ05 - Mar 2014
Many happy childhood memories at sheffield ski village. Felt lucky to have 1 of the best dry ski slopes on my doorstep. Sad to see it in its current state.
Ben Hall - Mar 2014
It should never have got into it's current position, it was a viable business.
Paul Booker - Mar 2014
It's disgusting how the owners of the village let this go to rack and ruin. It was still functional after the fire and should have been secured better. So sad.

Sheffield is a CITY not a village.
Anthony Wood - Mar 2014
I don't think the present owner ever intended to keep the ski village open. He wants to build on the site and really shouldn't be allowed to. It was a great place once and I am sure it can be again if only someone who has a vision for it's future takes charge.
Anne-Marie Wiclcok - Mar 2014
Would be great to see the ski village up and running again, fond memories as a child. Recently visited the site and was shocked how run down the site had become.

Matt - Mar 2014
Brin back Sheffield ski centre!!!!
Emily Purver - Mar 2014
Sheffield promoted skiing to countless school children , it offered an elitist sport to all. The results stand the test of time, many athletes and people that have made snow sports their profession.
Kim George - Mar 2014
please reinstate ASAP
Martin Crapper - Mar 2014
we need somewhere for current and future Olympic champions to practice
Jean Crapper - Mar 2014
It will be a disaster for Sheffield to lose the ski slope to a housing development or any other inappropriate use of the current site. The country needs these sorts of facilities to continue to encourage our young people to be active and become involved in snow sports. Turnin the site into a housing development as I have heard might be the case, would be a woefully shortsighted act.
Stephen Bright - Mar 2014
Need it for Paco's generation.
Darren Richardson - Mar 2014
Use the old ski village site and build a MASSIVE indoor snow dome to rival the one in Dubai. Incorporate a foam pit and air bag zone with a cafe/bar/restaurant with an independent ski and snowboard dealer

Sheffield needs to re-establish itself as a sporting city, closure of large venues recently have really affected the credibility of sport in the city. The reopen ing of the dry slopes would be of huge benefit especially on the back if a successful Winter Olympics for team GB.

Thomas Moore - Mar 2014
Sheffield needs to re-establish its ambition to be the "City of Sport". And as the FORMER English premier winter sports centre, it is a screaming necessity to rebuild this facility.
Terry Watson - Mar 2014
Please can you explain more about your plans? I would love to see exactly the sort of thing you suggest but how does this happen? What are the plans, how is it to be financed? Are we asking for the council to provide this at their cost? I'm just curious to know if this is just a wishful petition or if there is a plan and some foundation behind it. It would be great to see sustainable action taken.
Lee Goodwin - Mar 2014
Sheffield and the uk need ski village back
Helen crimlisk - Mar 2014

paul armitage - Mar 2014

I would probably never have become a ski instructor without having access to race training at Sheffield Ski Village during my years at the University of Sheffield. I'm now on my 8th season of full time instructing and I will be forever grateful to SSV for providing that startup. There is so much talent and enthusiasm for outdoor sports in Sheffield. I hope this petition gains momentum.

Daniel starey - Mar 2014
70 new houses will not put Sheffield on the map, a new Sowsports venue that breeds Olympic athletes WILL
Richard Summerhayes - Mar 2014
I used to teach at the Sharks Ski Club in the early days - it was a fantastic and all inclusive experience vital to developing young people's abilities in so many ways in addition to skiing. It is a tragedy what has recently happened to the slope and I would whole-heartedly support anything to bring the facility back. Best of luck!
Simon Holmesmith - Mar 2014
Sheffield Ski Village was a hub of the snowsports community, it would be a shame to let it rot.
Claire Andrews - Mar 2014
Continue investment in snowsports and do this where the heritage is like Sheffield
Greg Paterson - Mar 2014
Considering we have just had a few Brits in the Winter Olympics to bring home some bling, why not give the younger generations that chance to do so. Bring back the ski village so people like my self don't have to travel further a field to spend my money boarding rather spend it in my own city.
Stefan Bowles - Mar 2014

Without Sheffield ski village I wouldn't have had the last 15 years of great snowboarding. It helped to inspire me to be better. And gave me the facility to practice practice practice. So sad to see what happened to it.

Bring back the slopes!!
Vanessa - Feb 2014
Went up last week, gates wide open, site has become a area for fly tippers, such a shame. After watching the Sochi 2014 winter olympics and slopestyle, Katie Summerhayes & Jenny Jones my daughter would like to take up snowboarding and would have been nice to have some where more local to go than xscape in Castleford / Wakefiled. The decline of the Ski Village started after the Sheffield City Planners turned down proposals to turn the slopes in to a Indoor venue and Aline style village about 4/5 years ago, if Sheffield Planners had approved the scheme Sheffield Ski Village would have been the best winter sports venue in the country !
Stephen Cavell - Feb 2014
Happy memories! Come back!!!
Annunziata Fiore - Feb 2014
Please get behind our young people and encourage their expertise. I loved watching (and marvelling at) all the new snow boarding and skiing events at Sochi.

Caroline Herczeg - Feb 2014
I had an introduction to skiing at Sheffield and feel it is really important to keep the centre open.
Andrea - Feb 2014
a fantastic facility which helped our amazing freestylers get where they are today...its about time money was put into the more modern individual and team sports otherthan the traditional football and rugby etc
Jackie Smith - Feb 2014
It would be amazing if Sheffield was reinstated! It was one of the best (if not the best!) dry slopes in the uk and I used to love going there

Good luck, I would love to see Sheffield Ski Village re-opened.
Madeleine S - Feb 2014
There's no reason why a proper park kicker couldn't be made of snowflex. Snowdomes are ok for rails but not for jumps. Build it properly like a park kicker not like before.
Tom Hutton - Feb 2014
After the best Winter Olympics for GB this place must stay open for future generations of athletes
Chris Holden - Feb 2014
Why Sheffield hasn't got a Ski centre is beyond me. With so many students and hills I think it's crazy not to have at least one Ski slope.
Ade Ward - Feb 2014
Noah - Feb 2014
Sheffield has a good history of creating facilities for the 'best' AND ' the People'. A Public/Private Partnership must surely be possible. The opportunity CANNOT be wasted!
Dave Francis - Feb 2014
We need a snow sports centre
Jean Holmes - Feb 2014
Too many sports facilities have been lost in Sheffield and the nearest snow sport facility is at Castleford - there are insufficient training facilities to encourage a new breed of sportsmen and women for this country in snow sports.
Keith Sharrocks - Feb 2014
Helen M - Feb 2014
Should never have been neglected in first place!!
Julie Gay - Feb 2014
" City of Sport", that's a laugh. Caborn , ex Minister for Sport, an even bigger joke. Wake up Julie Dore and you other muppets in the Town Hall. Have some vision and faith in the future of the sporting youth of this City. Do not allow housing development, the infrastructure for skiing and mtb is already there.Invest in the future. I will do the chips and cheese!
peter mara - Feb 2014
1. Attended the ski village on a regular basis accompanying a group of disabled people who gained much confidence from the experience. 2. The possitive exposure sheffield got from the winter olympics couldn't be bought. Reinforce the brand (Sheffield) and the whole city will benefit
A Garlick - Feb 2014
the systematic degeneration of Sheffield must stop right here and now.
carl mcdonald - Feb 2014
It was such a shame to see it close down! Let's get it open again and run better! Better access this time!
Chris Priest - Feb 2014
Give young people in this area a chance to benefit again from what was a great facility. I personally know two young people who went on to great things in the skiing world following their start at Sheffield.
Liz Martin - Feb 2014
Another Sheffield tragedy that we have let this facility slip. I used to ski there as a child and have used the facilities many time with my own children. There are not many cities which have the hills and scope to provide such great potential for a dry ski slope venue.
Anna Hawksworth - Feb 2014
This where we learned to ski
Carl Snowden - Feb 2014
Myself and the wife have used the facility. Really impressed with how it was run. Needs opening again.

Gary Spooner - Feb 2014
My wife and I were regular users of the Sheffeld Ski Slope and I am disgusted at the lack of assistance from the City Council.
Gordon Headley - Feb 2014
you know it makes sense
Pete Moore - Feb 2014
Scandal that Shef. council will spend huge sum on a one day event [the Tour de France but ignore an investment in sport for decades.
G Brown - Feb 2014
The facilities have to be there to encourage and stimulate our snowsporting individuals.

chode ferguson - Feb 2014
It's a travesty that it has been closed for so long, and lacking any obvious support from Sheffield City Council; then again what can we expect from a Council capable of destroying Don Valley Stadium. Shameful!
John Kennewell - Feb 2014
can never do too much like this for kids
Duncan Cameron - Feb 2014
We produced some top class athletes from the Sheffield centre and want to continue that tradition. Where is the so-called Olympic legacy that the Government spoke about?
Chris Leak - Feb 2014
When the Sheffield Ski Village was burned down it was a tragic loss to the UK’s Ski and Snowboard industry. Sheffield desperately needs investment, and Britain’s current and future Olympians and winter sports enthusiasts badly need good facilities in which to train and hone their skills. Don’t let this temporary loss become a permanent one.

Having two people from Sheffield taking part in the games the only ones in thier sport from all uk to be there and they both trained at the ski village says it all what a waste of a good plcae
This needs to happen, sheffield was a key training ground for my university team and we miss it. Given that it has helped so many olympic athletes, lets make it excellent again.
Sophie Miles - Feb 2014

I started skiing on that slope when it first opened and was just a portakabin and one dry slope it went on to such great things and I cannot believe it ended up closing but as all things in Sheffield like the airport and many other amazing businesses they are ruined by the council's lack of support and vision...stop voting them in!!!!!!
Danielle Cameron Chafer - Feb 2014
Sheffield should show some pride in its facilities not just run them/knock them down like Don better than not less than!!
Kathryn Wilson - Feb 2014
I really hope this slope can be rebuilt, I've seen first hand what a great dryslope can do for the community. Would be awful for the locals to loose this.

Terence Thompson - Feb 2014
Get it open!!
Jeni - Feb 2014
It would be wonderful to see Sheffield as a snow sport Centre. Just look at the success of our winter Olympians. Just imagine the results we could have if we had good facilities like this. Plus, the government and health officials are always saying young people do not exercise enough. Thie would be an ideal opportunity for youngsters and what fun. My children visited sheffield ski slopes and loved it.
Lesley Merrin - Feb 2014
Fantastic idea!
Kerry James - Feb 2014

Great petition
Drew Hamilton - Feb 2014
was a massive cultural centre for ski in the uk...vital in the north...and if run properly would be the capital for uk snowsports
greg - Feb 2014
SSV was an amazing place. Far bigger, and with so many more features than the indoor snow slopes. With investment in a new surface (which it needed anyway) it isn't difficult to imagine how well our next generation of Olympians (and the current ones still have a few more games to come) will do in future years. This time Team GB only equalled their best result in history. Reviving this place will guarantee we blow that record to pieces in years to come.
Angus Walker - Feb 2014
Bring back the carpets!!!
Alexander Waldron - Feb 2014
All the best.

So many of our top skiers have used Sheffield for training i, aerobatics into the pool , the amazing half pipe, get it back!
Anne wilson - Feb 2014
Britsh talent needs the investment in facilities to allow our up and coming athletes to achieve their dreams.
Bethan Cradock - Feb 2014
Why are these things funded and encouraged elsewhere and allowed to go into disrepair or be demolished in Sheffield?
Melody Wilcock - Feb 2014
Bring back the ski village

This could win GB gold at the olympics!
Wade Leaford - Feb 2014
yes had the same idea I was in the process of finding who to email about it. No better time to start after a great olympics
dale savage - Feb 2014
Remember the Snow Mountain project? It would have been bankrolled by a housing scheme, which the council then rejected, stopping the project in its tracks. This, Don Valley and Sheffield F.C. playing outside of the city - do we want to be the "City of Sport"? This needs to happen to kickstart the local tourist economy!
Lewis Skinner - Feb 2014
My son, inspired by the Olympics, recently asked for a snowboarding lesson for his 8th birthday. How great it would be to have something local for our kids - maybe future Olympians!
Kerry Bell - Feb 2014
I loved learning to ski here and the half pipe and jumps area was so fun :)
John Hopkins - Feb 2014
A valuable facility that needs reinstating

david flynn - Feb 2014
Learnt to snowboard here, great instructors and great dry slope
Richard Lawson - Feb 2014
Growing up in sheffield, the ski village was a great centre to learn snowsport and spend time as teenagers. It was always a hub of so many activities and events and made Sheffield a more unique city. I was inspired by some of my friends who went on to join olympic teams and it provided a great platform for this. It would greatly benefit the city to see this return to its former glory.
Rosie Skirrow - Feb 2014
my daughter learned to ski here, many pleasurable hours spent! nothing like this in the area, kept kids and grownups entertained!! we need it back
lyndsey allen - Feb 2014
angus marshall - Feb 2014
pleas pleas pleas
william kiely - Feb 2014
I have raced here before, and it was a real privilege. University ski tournaments aren't the same without this place, and lots of young talent comes from it - just look at the most recent olympics!
Henry Barnick - Feb 2014
Sheffield Ski Village was an enormous part of my life for 10 years, it was the reason why I chose to come to Sheffield University, and it is the reason why I have continued to work for the NHS in S Yorkshire rather than moving elsewhere. It made winter sports accessible to everyone irrespective of age and finances, and for me it made Sheffield what it is. That half of the UKs free-ski team and snowboarding's Dom Harrington came from the slope is a testament to the enormous amount of talent the place has nurtured and produced over the years. An incredible place.
Steven Fletcher - Feb 2014
We need all the facilities we can get.

We need this facility to train future Olympic hopefuls
Kate Crampton - Feb 2014
Rebuilding the dryslope would do wonders for Sheffield, it could act as a breeding ground, once again, for the next generation of athletes and give kids something to look forward and aspire to. It has already been shown that the facilities which where here are capable of producing world class competitors, and it would be a real shame for them not to be able to show people where they learnt. Please don't let this opportunity pass you by. Regards Edward
Edward - Feb 2014

this would be good for snowsport, Sheffield and kids for miles around sheffield

this needs to be done
harry stephenson - Feb 2014
I would be great to have the SSV at up and running, it changed the lives of so many people. Not to menton Woodsy and Katie Summerhayes who I remember as kids in the fun park.

Sochi showed folks what GB can produce with faff all, lets see some investment in top notch facilities and reap what is sowed!
Matthew Fraser - Feb 2014
We have seen a decline in local snowsports centres around the UK, and yet an increase in interest with recent Winter Olympic medals. Time to restore the grass roots for wintersports in the UK - not everyone can afford to get to the few indoor snowdomes!
Dave Flynn - Feb 2014
Been wanting to see a 'Woodward' style facility in the UK for a while.
Jonny - Feb 2014
This is a chance to bring one of the original venues of snow sports in the UK back to life. It has helped many riders progress in the past and now is a great time to reinvest in the facility so soon after Sochi. Renewed facilities here would be a fantastic legacy after the 2014 games and an investment in the future of the sports and tomorrows athletes...whatever the level.
Jon Beynon - Feb 2014
Rebuild and reopen.
Aaron Spinks - Feb 2014
it wont help me in anyway with Cairngorm nearby but its needed for our future freestyle athletes
Iain Maitland - Feb 2014
Would be awesome if they got the funding to create a snowdome rather then the old mess like slopes
Jan davies - Feb 2014
Rude not to
Duncan Worrell - Feb 2014
This facilty was one of the best in england, I had my first lesson here but how many future star will loose out if this is gone for good. Simply put the slope had things that the indoor domes simply could never build!

Great idea!
Ryan Diver - Feb 2014
Had some great times racing here
Alex Abbott - Feb 2014
we need facilities like this. too many kids these days think spending all night on a games console is a better alternative to socialising, getting fit and having some good old fashioned fun on the slopes.
Dave Charlton - Feb 2014
Snowsports isn't just about competitions, it's about having fun. Let's make it accessible for everyone.
Jennifer Gleadhall - Feb 2014
This is a great way to encourage youngsters to get involved in a great sport.

Hope this goes through, since we dont have many mountains we need top training facilities like these
Ash McCallum - Feb 2014
I'd love to see some snow sports facilities back on Sheffield, they've been greatly missed

Irfhan Mirza - Feb 2014

Craig Scrivener - Feb 2014
This is really a no brainer. Already known for this - re establishing Sheffiled Snowsport Centre would boosrt the area and snowsports in general in the UK.
Rob Needham - Feb 2014
As well as creating potential positive spillover effects from other high-level sporting facilities in Sheffield, renovation of the Ski Village would provide a much-needed economic boost to the local area where it is situated.
Chris Bollington - Feb 2014
Fantastic facilities back in the day and much better than our 'fridges' despite it being a dry slope.
craig gillanders - Feb 2014
Invest in the future.
Christopher James - Feb 2014
Sheffield people deserve the chance to use such facilities on our own door step without having to travel to other areas to use theirs
Lorraine Jackson - Feb 2014
This is a great idea. What plans are there to bring this to the attention of the council ?
Liam Spencer - Feb 2014

This is so so important - I really hope this can happen. Good luck!
Jenny Dunn - Feb 2014
This hub of excellence needs to be rebuilt and improved upon to provide the opportunity for all the people inspired by team GBs brilliant performance at Sochi. How will we continue to evolve and develop the sport if our facilities fail to be improved and updated?
Ellis Hughes - Feb 2014
I learnt to ski and snowboard here, it was a good employer in the city, gave me training and kept me fit all the local schools used us and it didn't matter if you had money as for 6 hours voluntary you got to learn to ski/snowboard and learn so many valuable life skills.
Sarah cook - Feb 2014
I would like to see Sheffield re-established as the Snow sport Centre for the UK, providing open access for all, and provide a sustainable positive effect on the local community. Thank you
Ghasem - Feb 2014
What a fantastic idea, it was an awesome facility, and using the Woodwood model for developing athletes sounds promising, and a true "legacy" of investment in sport. Well done to all concerned.
Oliver Rees - Feb 2014
This is a great thing for uk ski and snowboard
Gerry sims - Feb 2014
I learned how to ski here back in 2006, I met some of my best friends here. It's been a hib for a long time and it should continue to be a hub for the great snowsports athleats that we have in the UK.

We need it for our children and grandchildren,please give them the chance to shine through for Great Britain.
irene.hague - Feb 2014
Sheffields breeding of snowsport finatics has decreased over the last few years. Lets generate the interest and put GB in the race for gold medals every year
Ben robinson - Feb 2014
We need it for our children and grandchildren,please give them the chance to shine through for Great Britain.
irene.hague - Feb 2014
YES Please!!
Omar maniyani - Feb 2014
What a waste to see the state of the ski village now - especially after the Sochi sucesses.
Christopher Willan - Feb 2014
the UK badly needs a freestyle training facility (like Camp Woodward in the US) and Sheffield badly needs something to cater for extreme sports fans and to replace the terrible loss of the ski village. I miss SSV :(
Pete - Feb 2014
I would love to see it return to what it was as I spent a lot of time at the ski village and learnt to snowboard there. It's sad to see it in such a state to say Olympic riders use to go as kids.
Jonathan Smith - Feb 2014
So important to fight for things like this for our future generations
Louise Fenton - Feb 2014
Bring snowsport back to Sheffield
Charlie Hyde - Feb 2014
Look forward to a re-emergence

Bring back the ski village!!
Charlotte Kiely - Feb 2014
I learned to ski in Sheffield as a teenager, i didn't get to ski on snow until i was in my 30's, but everything i learned wasn't wasted! It would be great to see a 'snowdome' constructed on that hillside! Realise the original dream...
Matt - Feb 2014
Loved the ski village, bring it back for the people who ride.
Charles Anthony Quinn - Feb 2014
Our 3 children learnt to ski at Sheffield - it gave them such confidence and a sense of achievement. It's a sacrilege that the site has been desecrated. Sheffield was synonymous with outdoor sport, it's facilities are being eroded slowly but surely.
Kerry brears - Feb 2014
My kids had many fun times at the ski village, it is vital to provide a range of options locally for kids. Who knows where future champions are and such a great way to have fun & relax in a world of ever increasing stress.
Rachel Habergham - Feb 2014
Good luck
Charlotte - Feb 2014
I would welcome the re introduction of facilities to further snow sports in Sheffield
Gillian Pearson - Feb 2014
my children are so excited about the winter olympics and i would love to give them opportunity to follow their dreams.
jenny Marshall - Feb 2014
Good luck
Joe rose - Feb 2014
This wud make me a better person !!! Boom !!
Elizabeth kitney - Feb 2014
Learnt to board whilst working behind the bar at the Village, had a fantastic community back then (around millenium). Be fantastic to get it back up and running properly again.
Paul Hampson - Feb 2014
Will be awesome to see this site back up and running! massive shame to see such a great facility go to waste
Gareth Jones - Feb 2014
Don't let today's vandals spoil opportunities for tomorrow's sport heros
Sarah Hill - Feb 2014
we want skiing back in Shaffield :)
claire mellars - Feb 2014
so many great people and times at what was SSV
DJ AndSolo - Feb 2014
Jamie Risner - Feb 2014
Let's create some future Olympic champions!
Kate Ebbutt - Feb 2014
A small, cheap dry slope is all we need. No big unsustainable project.
Brian Trevaskiss - Feb 2014
Make winter sports more accessible by supporting this
Jim Emery - Feb 2014
Some of my fondest memories were of time at the ski village, it shaped my life more than I could've thought possible.
Alex Crombie - Feb 2014
Sheffield is a sporting city we need this up snd running again.
Sarah Pearson - Feb 2014
Sheffield needs something! We are pulling down our Olympic legacy. I would love to see the Ski village or another winter sport facility in the city. The site is huge - imagine if we had an Xscape up there!
Victoria Cobley - Feb 2014
Would be amazing to see the ski village open again so everyone can have a chance to try winter sports and as part of Sheffield's wider reputation as a place of sporting excellence.
Martin Clist - Feb 2014
Sheffield needs this!
Andrew Clarke - Feb 2014
I was very disappointed when the ski village closed. I'm sure someone could make a go of it or something similar in Sheffield.
Michelle Smith - Feb 2014
Go go!
Johan Janssens - Feb 2014
As a keen snowboarder with 4 young children who are all aspiring young skiiers/boarders having this facility back in the city would be fantastic not only for myself but for a new generation of sportsmen and women
Holly - Feb 2014
I wholeheartedly support this
Gary O'Boy - Feb 2014
it was my home for many years and it was the place where I learnt to ski and enjoyed skiing at, it would be a shame for the future generations who wish to ski but can't find a local ski slope to go to that didnt take an hour or so to get to
Armani Nasser - Feb 2014
I, like so many others counted SSV as a second home growing up in Sheffield. I wholeheartedly welcome and support efforts at reinstating the Sheffied Snowsport Legacy.
Jonathan Greenstreet - Feb 2014
this needs to happen!
andy hodgson - Feb 2014
Help Sheffield be the home to the next Woodsy, provide somewhere for the uni teams to train, for local clubs to hold comps and local riders to have a great time without having to drive to Cas or Manchester! You know it makes sense and the site could hold an amazing ski slope.
Robert Marchand - Feb 2014
The winter Olympics were evidence enough that Sheffield's ski village has created a whole generation of world class performers. Come on SCC, get behind a rebuild!!
John Horscroft - Feb 2014
Please do this!!
Kelly Kershaw - Feb 2014
Help the forgotten City of Sport
Dorothy Walker - Feb 2014
Youth of today need more facilities to keep them usefully occupied and off the streets and more variety of sport facilities is the best way to help them.
Dennis Coath - Feb 2014
bring it back!!
bryn hawkins - Feb 2014
Let's do it!
Jagoda Bomba - Feb 2014
Bring it back!
Rob Stanford - Feb 2014
With the culture for outdoor sports so pervasive throughout Sheffield's cultural identity it is a travesty that we don't have a Snowsport Centre. I for one will certainly be a regular user of the facilites and will help in any way I can to ensure that we see the return of a Snowsport Centre to Sheffield.
Craaig Furniss - Feb 2014
Bring back the best U.K. Training facility
Simon Maynard's - Feb 2014
The council has failed to support the city in such cases for many a year. Time to put sheffield back on the map before it misses out entirely.
Robert Mooney - Feb 2014
Sheffield. City of Sport they say. Let's prove it!
Stefan Gallagher - Feb 2014
This is exactly what 'Olympic legacy' should be all about.
Tom Westgate - Feb 2014
A great facility, both of my children loved it, and went on to be great skiers, bring it back, so lots more kids get the opportunity to learn to ski
Jeanette Young - Feb 2014
It would be fantastic if such a facility were available again. Hopefully Sochi will have proved that artificial slopes in the UK are a great introduction into the sport.
Terri Danisevich - Feb 2014
Please signnn!!!
Bruce Lawson - Feb 2014
A brilliant atmosphere for young talent to learn thete dport and go forward to represent our country. Its hugely important that our children have an oppourtunity to learn and work in such ppsitive environment
Liam Evans - Feb 2014
The ski village is one of the main reasons I chose to go to university in Sheffield. If it goes, the city of 'sport' which has already lost Don Valley Stadium will fall even further backwards.
Anna Wrigglesworth - Feb 2014
The ski village site needs to be utilised. Sheffield should capitalise on its sporting potential and the enthusiasm of its residents.
Maxine Gregory - Feb 2014
Learnt to ski at Sheffield ski village and it was an essential building platform that I went on to compete for GB at World Cup and World Championships in Halfpipe!
Becky Hammond - Feb 2014
To let Sheffield Ski Village die will be like taking a piece of Sheffield history with it. I spend many hours of my youth learning to ski there and my kids we're doing the same - Sheffield prides itself as an outdoor city and the Ski village was a big part of this.
Lucy Sibbald - Feb 2014
Even if you are not a snow sport fan this is a great thing for sheffield.
Liz Clare - Feb 2014
Yet another great way to involve in sport, wasted
Neill barraclough - Feb 2014
Bring Back SSV

jim ellis - Feb 2014
Bring it back for future Olympians
Mike cousins - Feb 2014
Snow power to the North.
Yvonne Sommer - Feb 2014
This is a very worthwhile cause
Michael Allcock - Feb 2014
For any sport to progress people need places to practice and develop their craft. Sheffield Ski Village has the potential to be both a financial and cultural asset to the city and surrounding areas. A decision not to redevelop the current site is a decision to sacrifice the potential talent of many young people who are yet to even try the sport. The way I see it, while it is disappointing that the Ski Village currently lies in ruin on the hill side, the massive support this cause is getting is so positive. Respect to everyone who's involved at whatever level!
James Allcock - Feb 2014
For three years I came to the ski village with the uni snow-sports clubs to practise and race for comps, throw ridiculous shapes off the corner kicker (mostly not landing) onto the white slidey carpet that once lined the epic park area of ssv. I went not only for a good ride but for a great social snd chsnce to meet other like minder snow/carpet enthusiasts. A delight that made my uni experience, why can't future generations get this too? Sheffield Ski Village is a proven Olympic training ground. Get this mother back on the slopes!
Rob weitz - Feb 2014
A dry slope offers so much more than a fridge! It offers SPACE. the ski village should never applied for a roof and fridge it should have applied to be bigger. There's actually a lot more hill that could be developed and made into a diverse exciting and changeable slope style area.
Duane Marshall - Feb 2014
Seems a bit rubbish actually guys. What are the details? Don't want that horrible carpet back.
James Edlington - Feb 2014
This place played a massive part if my life would be a huge shame to see it gone for good. Really need to be brought back to life to future generations a safe place to grow, enjoy and make something of them selves. So many great oppertunities lay waiting on the side if that hill it's time sheffield took hold of them to create something amazing.
Sam Wilson - Feb 2014
Sheffield Ski Village was an asset to the city and offered so many opportunities and positive experiences to so many people, it would be great to see it return better than ever.
Charlotte Mary - Feb 2014
Miss this place, met so many great people here.
Heather Shaw - Feb 2014
Sheffield let the excellent snow dome project slip away...SSV was always a slope producing superb skiwers and boarders..who with better funding and guidance could have competed at the top has history..and the winter olympics have clearly shown how good the uk dry slope skiers and boarders are ..what could they and up and coming youngsters achieve with a state of the art training facility...and poss an ice climbing venue ..after all sheffield is a world renown climbing destination too.
graham sutton - Feb 2014
Sad to see it in the state it's in at the moment. Such a waste!
Gemma MacDonald - Feb 2014
Bring back SSV. Love the place always will. Please sign xxx
Jess Roche - Feb 2014
As a regular user of the Sheffield Ski Village, I find it sad that Sheffield has been surpassed by Wakefield, Tamworth and now Manchester in providing snow sport facilities
Dave Buttery - Feb 2014
Sheffield Snowsports Center was the Jewel in british snowsports. The right length to hold national races, Vavied terain for freestyle including a water ramp, A national center of excellence, had some lottery funding. It is sickening what has been allowed to happen to this facility. It is needed to be re instated.
Rohan Morris - Feb 2014
It's time that the old SSv site was saved from dereliction and possible housing development and turned back into a sporting facility that the city can be proud of.
simon clark - Feb 2014
We've the best hill inside a city anywhere in the UK. Time to restore our city's snow sport heritage for the next generation.
Al Churcher - Feb 2014
my introduction to snow sports, too much potential to lose
Jules - Feb 2014
Big shame what happened to SSV. Lots of good memories and a constantly clicking thumb thanks to that place.
Chris St John - Feb 2014
Bring it back!
Rachel Smith - Feb 2014
Sheffield is a great place to have a centre for winter sports development as people could work with the universities in the city to create a world class winter sports program.
Carl Winsor - Feb 2014
Ski facilities as well as job opportunities for Sheffield
Helen Wilson - Feb 2014
Sheffield Snow facilities changed my direction in life lets get it back
Andy George - Feb 2014

Alex Hocken - Feb 2014
Angus Patterson - Feb 2014
Yes, please.
Phil Vintin - Feb 2014
If the ski village isn't replaced, kids will never develope into winter Olympians!

Jean Lonsdale - Feb 2014
a must keep facility
dan Beighton - Feb 2014
i learned to snowboard in the 90s at sheffield ski village and the impact this had on the rest of my life was massive in a positive way. Snowboarding is a lifestyle and a healthy one at that. Please give todays young people of sheffield the same opportunity i had. We have 7 natural hills, we should use them.
Verity - Feb 2014
how can we have winter Olympic medalists with no facilities!
hilary Mitchell - Feb 2014
Please bring back the Ski-Village to its former glory. I learned to ride a snowboard there as did many of my friends and we absolutely loved being up there. Made so many amazing friends to from learning to ride.
Richard Meftah - Feb 2014
Hopefully we will see this back as it was if not better after seeing the fantastic results in the winter olympics by team GB
robert greensmith - Feb 2014
I was lucky enough to learn to ski at SSV aged 3 and then teach & coach there later in life before moving out to the alps to work with ski brands. Bringing any kind of facility to teach the next geration on Woodsys, Machons, Longleys and Summerhayes' back to sheffield is the best idea I have seen in ages. And bonus, you already have a great knowledge base of young coaches based in sheffield who have experience at the top level of the sport representing the country. Because of this, even after SSV burnt down, the home of UK snowsports never changed from being Sheffield.
Steve Walton - Feb 2014
Should never have got in the run down state in the first place. A new centre of excellence with more activities is a must.
John wyke - Feb 2014
The North needs a premier outdoor Snowsports facility again. We need to be training tomorrow's Olympians now!
Kevin Edwards - Feb 2014
The our future Olympians
Lucy Ferguson - Feb 2014
Most other sports have centers of excellence why not skiing
Michael Theaker - Feb 2014
Appropriate given the strength of recent Winter Olympics
Simon mcinerney - Feb 2014
We need a permanent place for freestyle to be practised and indoor slopes cannot achieve this.
James Fuller - Feb 2014
The SSV was my 2nd home from the first time I skied there. It was my favourite place to be anywhere, it was perfect.
Jack cripplso - Feb 2014
WE LOVE SHEFFIELD AND WE LOVE SNOW! Bring ski village back!
Elizabeth Marshall - Feb 2014
I fully endorse this initiative, and strongly believe it could bring a boost to the local economy whilst providing a facility for keen sports people in the Sheffield area
James Taylor - Feb 2014
this was the place i learned to board without it i would never been able to enjoy snowbaording as much as i do know
jonathan copeman - Feb 2014
It is what Sheffield needs to keep youth positively occupied, attract people help the economy. (I used to drive from Manchester)
Nicola Griffiths - Feb 2014
The SSV was hugely influencial for me when I first came to uni, it helped me better my snowsports skills and it'd be a terrible waste of a brilliant establishment to let it see rot, please bring it back!
Joe Corby - Feb 2014
I'd love to see the ski village restored to its former glory. It'd be a great place to take my kids to learn the skills I learnt and love to ski !!
James Thompson - Feb 2014
Unfortunate that we lost this facility five olimpians in team gb at Sochi learned and trained at this facility

It's so sad to see the Ski Village in its current state. A valuable and much loved venue by aspiring Olympians and those who just loved it for fun. Bring it back, bigger and better! I too met lifelong friends there, including my husband, and would love to see my children use the facilities in the future.
Victoria Williams - Feb 2014
Sheffield is the cultural city for life, turning seeds into reality to allow us to flow and grow through life at the pinnacle of next generation sports.
Darren Bristow - Feb 2014
Sheffield ski village is too good of a resource, not only to the surrounding area but also too future hopefull athletes alike.

mrs seifert - Feb 2014
Let's get this sorted
Nick Hoare - Feb 2014
Sheffield Ski Village changed my life when I was at a very low point. I learnt to snowboard there, developed my love of the sport, met so many fantastic people, some of who are lifelong friends and one who is now my husband, and had so many great times. I watched and aspired to those Olympic snowboarders and skiers who have just done us proud in Sochi. It wasn't just a sports centre, it was a way of life for many including myself. And I hoped that one day I would take my kids there too. Well fingers crossed by the time our baby's due the Snowsport Centre will be up and running, or at lesat in the process of being developed. Us and generations to come need facilities like this!!!
Zoe Gell - Feb 2014
I do not know how you have the cheek
Alice Gilbert - Feb 2014
Future Olympians, tackling obesity, giving people access to amazing sports, raising Sheffield's profile... The reasons why this is a great idea go on and on!
Frank Reardon - Feb 2014
Let's do it
Chris Ball - Feb 2014
We are supposed to be Cory of Sport! Sheffield City council need to be ashamed of theirselves! When are they going to stop wasting money instead of creating wealth for our City? We are one of the biggest Cities in UK., I believe the 5th? How come Castleford has an indoor slope which has created loads of jobs and footfall and everything Sheffield had has been closed down? including the magnificent Sports Stadium, which incidentally you and I are probably still paying for! Ok Rant over ... What good it will do :/ !!
Dianne Green - Feb 2014
bring back the ski village!
alex - Feb 2014

Paul Duffus - Feb 2014
It's part of our heritage!

Nathan Craig - Feb 2014
The Sheffield Olympians have been a huge inspiration to a number of 10&11yr olds. They're missing out massively on an opportunity to have a go and possibly shine at Snowsports as the closest centre is beyond their means! There are hundreds just like them...Let's put Sheffield back on the map!
Karen Bister - Feb 2014
It was an inspiration for many and a massive loss ...

The loss of the Sheffield Ski Village has left a hole which needs to be filled. Great work.
Rhys Cooper - Feb 2014
Kept me off the streets and gave me the chance to see some amazing places and meet some amazing people. The ski industry is worth millions, why not introduce our youngsters to jobs and the chance to excel in sport?!
craig guest - Feb 2014
What a great cause to get some sport back into sheffield and after recent Olympics where team GB made an impact. Let's get some home grown athletes from sheffield back on the map with up and coming youngsters
