A snow sport centre returning to Sheffield would be fantastic for the city, for the sport enthusiasts, the people of Sheffield and potential Winter Sports international level competitors from the local area!
bring the slops back ...awesome place to learn
Rebirth for the ski village
Have skiied here many times, Needs snow though not artificial as we are living in the modern world !
Ski Instructor fully supporting the future of Snow sports in Sheffield. please keep in contact
So many people learned at Sheffield, including me, my boys, &olympic talent like woodsy..... many fun hours there, such a waste
sheffield ski village has and will always be the hub for snow sports in the UK. Many have learnt there and it holds some amazing memories from the snowboard community.
Would be great to see it reopen. A potential fantastic resource for the city & region
I loved skiing here as a child, would be great for my children to be able to enjoy it too....
Reopen it, it was a very important facility in the region.
Please open it again! Such a great resource
my son learned to ski here, not been back to sheffield for a long time and returned recently and heard of the slopes demise in 2012 - gutted. Get this venue reopened !!
Learnt to board here, and tore my knee open. Still came back to finish my course. Would love to see it functioning again.
Learnt to board here, Broke my arm here, great memories here
Hope they build something on it soon
To have a regeneration project with the Ski Village is imperative to the growth of the city. It will bring business back into the city centre which is much desired.
Bring back the ski village! The closet one to here is an hour away! Such a shame to see it on sheffields skyline in such decay, will be epic if we can get it to its former glory
good luck sheffield ski centre
rebuild it come on
It's a part of sport in Britain that has been let down, fund better access, get voluntary work involved.
Loved this place when once or twice when I was a kid brilliant place hope to see it back in the future
should build it with real snow (indoor)
need the ski village back
I absolutely agree with everything intended.
I am in favour for the ski village to be rebuilt as it's such a waste and would be good for Sheffield.
Good luck with the project
I learnt to board at the ski village and would love to see it back as the hub it used to be!
The demise of the ski village has left a big hole in Sheffield UK outdoor capital credentials. It was such a big part of many people's lives in Sheffield and the surrounding areas and is sorely missed
Get the slopes sorted.
how good would this be as an attraction, now its an eyesore, rebuild it! and im australian, living in australia, why do brits wreck your own home?
I would love to see the ski slope in action again!
Must come back
Would love to have a skiing venue in Sheffield again! I am 16 now but I remember Ski Sheffield going down them hills, more younger people could get into this as I did! Hopefully more to come
should have been listed
Really want to see this happen!
Love the Sheffield piste!
who is now authorised to make any decision if a sponsor or anyone came along to inject any cash into the reopening of the ski slope is it the sheffield council
For Sheffield to truly engage its past and future we Need to have a thriving ski centre AV
Lets make skiing available to all
Let's hope Sheffield Ski Village is back soon!
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
We need this bringing back!
This place needs to be put back on the map
A sport which will compete with games consoles, needs re-opening in an ideal location.
Ski village was one of Sheffield iconic places and mut be re build again
this was home to so many people let's put it back on the map!
Shame on the council allowing the closure to continue they must re open and support the next generation of skiers
Sheffield needs this!
Unique opportunity to create a snow sport centre of excellence. Where are the visionaries? Where are the entrepreneurs? Thank goodness people still care.
Keep Going on!!!
I hope this gets re-opened as it's in a sorry state right now.
Please do this
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
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.
I rode and worked at the ssv for over 5 years.
Emotional seeing the place the way it is now. Would be incredible to have it open again.
Dry ski slopes were how I got hooked. Loved Sheffield's - good luck bringing it back!
Incredible place, a huge part of Sheffield, generates Olympians. bring it back!
Wonderful place which needs reigniting.
It would be an excellent way to get the people of Sheffield active. Additionally it would provide an excellent tourist attraction to benefit the local economy.
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
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
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.
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.
Such a great facility that deserves to be used. Also a potential major attraction for Sheffield.
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.
My dad rode this halfpipe whenever he passed by Sheffield in the 90's ...it 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!
We've got climbing, hiking, cycling, ale, friendly people, now lets have the skiing.
Bring back our slopes! Never give up hope!
Let us make Sheffield the best - bring back the ski slopes.
Great to have a good snow sports venue in the UK again.
Fed up of having to travel to castleford all the time to snowboard, bring back the ski village!
Bring back Ski Village!!!
We are a sheffield based charity which would love to help get this back up and running!
The ski village MUST rise again.... what a massive shame that a facility of which Sheffield was justly proud was allowed to fall into such a dismal state. I was one of many thousands who enjoyed improving my ski techniques there.
Get Sheffield skiing again, I'm all for it. My son would love to have some lessons
Love to have a alternate boarding venue from the snow zone facilities.
I learned to ski here - what a waste of a first class facility
The plans for a real snow slope that got turned down years ago could have rescued this place a looooong time ago !.
Lets get this fantastic facility back to the way it should be..it's a crime just letting it rot away
Even after the latest fire - surely this great resource can be re-established. Would be such a wasted opportunity if the ski village is left as a wasteland.
Miss ski village defo need to be bk up n running
Bring back snow sports to Sheffield. It makes sense - especially if you combine it with Moungtain Biking.!!
It's where I learnt to board nearly 15 years ago
First time i put on a pair of skis was at Sheffield, as a school boy it gave me a taste of something that myself or my family might never have been able to afford to experience
Come on investors, stakeholders etc... Make some jobs and let's get this space sorted for the snow sports to return to.
Went up to the old ski village last week such a shame to see the state of it after just three years!!
Get sheffield back skiing
Sheffield is a shambles, they don't realise a good thing when it's put in front of them!!!
Bring back Ski Vilkage !!!
Love to see ski village up and running again!!
Would definitely benifit Sheffield
I learnt to ski at the centre and firmly believe it should be rebuilt as a rival to the indoor snow domes!
Amazing place, gutted when it burnt down and would love it to come back so it can be enjoyed by everyone again
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.
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
My sports mad daughter went to Sheffield to study for three reasons - Ponds Forge, Don Valley and the Ski Centre. Only one left now! Shame on you Sheffield.
My children, who later reached the top of the dryslope rankings learned to ski here many moons ago. Shame to see it in such a state
Lets bring the sport back to our City!
So we're the city with the most amount of outdoor equipment per household - yet we still have to travel to Manchester or Castleford to actually use it, driving past our own abandoned one?! Go figure
The UK sports community needs this facility putting back togetherasap.
essential that we get the snow village up and running again.
Many great memories skiing here. Return it to its former glory!
i love skiing
I have contacts with mountainhardwear would love to help !! Contact me by email
We need this back!
I learnt to Skii and Snowboard here, I'm ultimately wanting to get back into the sports that I loved, This has to be one of the keys to putting Sheffield and snow sports back on the map. I'd also love to see Downhill MTB embraced as this too is a passion of mine! Fort William/Ben Nevis have nailed this, why can't Sheffield :D
Got to be done!
Why not have a ski/snow sport and mountain bike centre?
learnt to ski here, skied here 3 times every week, loved it and it neads to re open
As a former worker at the ski village. and an avid snowboarder I believe Sheffield is the 'City of Sport'.
please bring it back
Apoyo desde españa para promover iniciativas como estas
So sad to see the demise of the ski village, would be great to get it open again. Good luck!
best idea in years, long live the ski village!
Fingers crossed for snowsports
a shame it was never allowed to be developed and funded properly the first time.
I learnt to snowboard in Sheffield, buy now have nowhere to practice but xscape in Castleford. Sheffield deserves better!
Bring back this centre for inspiration!
This needs to happen!! Come on Sheffield council sort it out
The future of the UKs snow sports needs this.
snowsport for Sheffield
Such a shame. I learnt to board here & it was fantastic. Forget the bars in the city centre & start renovating the outskirts that are getting delapidated
the people want it, need it and will grow from it! let's feed this passion in the Steel City and beyond
I would love to see the ski village reopened
my whole family learnt to ski hear, I would love to have it back open so I can ski weekly again. I would also be willing to help clean up the site
No other venue has a view that makes you feel like you're actually on a hill. restore this place for the sake of youth obesity
I learned here. Was buzzing place!
SSV Is sacred to Sheffield! Develops talented British ski and snowboarders for the sport!!
All snowsports efforts in the UK are worthy - let's make it happen.
This would be good for tourism too. An urban sports quarter with MTb too.
Bring it back
cool story bro
it would be great to have access to snowsports alot closer to home
For all those carpet burns and backflips. I had a lot of love for this place
I am signing to show my support of this cause - it's where I learnt to ski and then spent years snowboarding here too.
sheffield needs this or somthing like the ski village back
we need state of the art indoor ski facility back in Sheffield lottery money needed Asaph
Please bring snowsports back to Sheffield. The Ski Village was a fantastic location to snowboard, ski and meet friends.
lets get it reopened fantastic place
This is where I learned to snowboard. It will be great for the city to have a ski facility again.
Had the best school trip here a fair few years ago bring back the opportunity to learn and be active I say other children
my children learnt to ski & snowboard at the ski village. Such a shame we now have no facilities & have to travel to either Castleford or Manchester,
this can only be a good thing for Sheffield. We have the institute of sport it should include snowsports
sheffield as anything that is any good taken away, get snow sports back
i want my children to enjoy the same amazing facilities I did as a child. The old ski village brought people from all backgrounds together.
Fingers are crossed
Many a good memory
Let's get snow sports back in sheffield
this facility really needs to be brought back into the community for future Snowsports generations!
really want to see this come back! So many of our up and coming skiers started out here
This has so much potential!!
too many places like this are being lost. its been due to fire then it was left its sad and almost cruel to see. bring it back, give the people of sheffield something to be proud of
we want snowspoet centre
as a relative beginner who has caught the bug, a local venue to improve my skiing throughout they year and ro allow me to progress to the next level in this country would be highly valuable.
please bring the ski village back
This site needs to be rebuilt - it used to be such an asset to the city. currently it's just a blight on the sheffield horizon... very sad if its just left like that
seems a shame to let the ski village go to ruin when it's been the source of so many talented skiers and would be a fantastic asset for Sheffield..
Sheffield is a brilliant city and it would be great to re-establish it as the Snowsport centre in the UK.
Skied here for many years as a Shark, I was absolutely devastated when it got destroyed. We can bring about change, let's make it happen.
It was such an amazing opportunity for kids in Sheffield to learn and experience
A few more and then lets get this party started
I learnt to ski here as a child - good memories
I learnt to ski there as a kid.
this place need to be revived as a snow sports centre of excellence to continue the good work of helping young talented people forfill there dreams of represting the UK as Olympians
Lest get the village back
Snow field of dreams - if you build it, they will come.
it should be a national treasure, not left in ruins
My son learned to ski at Ski Village other children should have the same opportunity
Both my children learned to ski here and my daughter has been working for SkiLouise at Lake Louise in Canada for the past 2 years.
I skied there a few years back! Awesome experience. A shame what happened and yes it should return.
The skill village was once an amazing facility that made snowsports accessible.
save the ski village
We need more places for young people to experience and train on snow for fun and for the Olympics
Let's take the Ski Village back from the Developers
It's a no-brainer - action now!
Bring back SSV!
need more outdoor activities for kids, surely there's cash to help get people moving and fight the obesity epidemic.
Miss skiing here, nice and cheap :)
It is hard to understand why the Ski Village did not work - it was so popular. Sheffield needs a snowcentre.
Why shouldn't Sheffield stay the city for sport, I would use the ski village far more regularly than driving to Castleford.
Bring back the Ski village!
Bring it back!!!!
Hope this works
Yes! We need it back! I want my child
Bring it back!
Lets do this!
bring the pride back to Sheffield
Bring it back with snow ontop!
i remember seeing the ski village for miles and it was always a talking point whenever we could see it, we always looked out for people skiing on the slopes! Such a shame it's not there anymore it was always realllly busy!
this is just what sheffield needs!
get lottery funding
BRING THE SKI VILLAGE BACK!!
Ski Sheffield was a truly national venue for skiing and snowboarding, bring it back home.
I think this is a brilliant idea & it would be very beneficial for the Sheffield community.
Please and please re-open the Sheffield Ski Village! It would bring so much attention to the outsiders to see how beautiful Sheffield is.
Everybody- but especially our young people- need local activities they can access to keep healthy in body and mind
Everybody- but especially our young people- need local activities they can access to healthy b
this would change my life
bring ssv back!!
please bring back the ski village
I used the ski village every Monday night for years. I have very fond memories of SSV
The UK needs a centre for excellence which can act as a feeder into snowsports which cannot be done in domes. Lets build on the legacy of Sochi and move forwards.
Long live SSV - revive the heartbeat!
this is key infrastructure to ensure we continue to creare world class athletes in Sheffield
Working in the Ski Village's cafe was my first job. I loved skiing after work with my staff lift-pass! Who remembers those NY Sushi Big Bang parties?
Bring back sheffield ski village
Snow slope for Sheffield
bring back the ski village. it helped produce Olympic athletes
Do not build houses on this site, it needs to be a sports & leisure complex again cementing Sheffield's great outdoor legacy!
Did my initial lessons at the Ski Village and am now an utter snow addict, was so glad to have been introduced to the sport and hope others in the area get the same opportunity without the need to travel miles to the regions other snow slopes.
Redevelopment opportunity and huge potential forSheffield
I learnt to ski on here. Real shame that it's not being renovated
I helped to build this place back in the early 90's and I would love to see it living again...
This is an essential redevelopment opportunity for Sheffield. There are no downsides, the site is currently a sad reminder of a glourious past. The potential for a positive impact on the local area is massive. Please make this happen.
Rebuild the Ski Village and boost Sheffields local economy
Dryslope for the UK, people travelled from all over the country to shred the sheffield snowflex
Would be great to see this up and running again. Best of luck.
we need a new ski villige
Bring Back SSV!
Keep the momentum going!
I learnt to snowboard at SSV. Would love to go back there now I've honed my skills on snow since learning. Would love to take my daughter to SSV to learn one day.
let's bring back snow sports
I live in Sheffield and this would be AMAZING for the city.
It would be amazing for the ski village to re-open I went there all the time as a kid.
Such a shame to see this facility in such a shocking state. I used to train there every friday night with my slalom team. Without the ski village we would never have take our skiing to the level we did. Im not sure how sheffield can call itself the National City of Sport without Ski Village and Don Valley Stadium. Please reopen the Ski Village, it will mean so much to so many kids in the future. I know it did for me
we need the ski village OPEN!
Makes me so sad to see a lead in an upcoming sport squandered by the best City in the world. Come on you city politicians, get your finger out and get snow sports back in Sheffield before its too late!
Could be great again with the right planning and support.
Ski village wooo!
really want an indoor snowpark for snowboard/ski freestyle practise, going to Castleford is really far away
Rebuild the ski village!
please lets have the ski village back
Rebuild the Ski Village!!!!!
We need snowsports back in Sheffield
i love snow
Save the Ski Village!
that place used to be my life!
used by universities in Sheffield, Leeds + colleges and schools as it used to be.
Should never have been allowed to close
Great idea. Don't give up!
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)
Vital leisure complex for up and coming Yorkshire talent
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.
Would love to see this open again.
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.
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!!
Get it up and running
the more indoor slopes in the UK the better.
It's a must.
Save SSV for future generations! It made a lot of our current greats...Jamie Nichols for example
Should be the future of UK Snowsports!
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
I learnt to ski here at University back in the 1990s. It was such a fabulous facility and an advert for the city.
Some investment up north would be nice!
All best wishes and support to you in your fight to re-establish this unique and much needed facility.
dry slopes are a valuable resource for communities health and well-being
I would love to be able to use the facilities again. A massive loss to the community :(
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.
You have my support!
This is where I learned to ski, please keep the centre open
Great venue and shame to see its demise. Lets hope Sheffield has once again a great ski village to be proud of.
Long live the legacy of the ski-village and allow it breed the next set of future athletes for Britain
AMAZING place, trained here for many years from stoke on trent such an aweful site now! Lets get this rebuilt!
I learnt to snowboard here and would like to see this area turned into an indoor snowdome
Damn shame that this has gone, this put Sheffield on the map as a centre for winter sports worldwide. Bring it back!
Ski Village was always hampered by poor access and a sense of exclusivity. A new centre needs to attract a wider demographic.
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
snowsports for sheffield :)
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
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.
Sheffield Ski Village gave me a sport that previously I could only dream of.
Bring the ski village back!
A facility that Sheffield could benefit from hugely.
So sad to find out my cherished teenage memories had been burned by some selfish idiots
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.

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.
do it do it now
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.
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.
I would love it to come back, all my sons were taught here and miss it so much!
So sad :(
Much better skiing at Sheffield than in a shed !
Bring it back!
Bring it back!!
Legendary breeding ground for the best UK talent, needs to be reborn, perhaps even the first indoor in the UK with a permanent park ;)
let's give our young ski hopefuls a place to train in South Yorkshire
Get it back open please use to go there all the time lots of memory's!!!
A great place for kids to experience skiing. Would love for it to return.
So sad to see the place I first set foot in skis in such a mess.
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?
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
A great cause, nothing better for a city than having a facility to inspire younger generations!
Love to see this up and running again
Dry slopes need as much help as they can get!
That's a shame, you can never have anything nice particularly in a deprived area!
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.
Keep up the great work guys!
i miss this place! i learnt to board here with susc
As someone who learnt at Hillend outside Edinburgh, I know the value of dry ski slopes; this one especially needs to be saved.
This is a chance for Olympians to give somethng back, I hope that they raise awareness. It was something that made Sheffield unique.
Such possibility lying unused, hopefully we'll see this unique resource restored one day.
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.
Bring back the shred!
Terrible loss, don't replace this valuable public space with housing.
Building houses where there used to a platform for future athletes is tragic!
Pass it on and sign
Snowsport For Sheffield!
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.
Sheffield is the Outdoor Capital of the UK. It needs a ski slope and a good 'un at that!
Everybody sign this!! As if the government still neef convincing to invest in uk Snowsports
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
Sheffield needs this facility
Sheffield ski village used to rule the north, bring back our treasured facility!
Bring back THE SKI VILLAGE IN SHEFFIELD
Let's do this!
Loved going here as a child and would like to see it remade
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.
It's sad to see a ski center go.
I learnt to ski at Sheffirld Ski Village and now have two beautiful children who I would like to have the same opportunity.
Such a shame to let this go the same as Don Valley.
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.
Invest in Sheffield's future!
Bring back the ski village!
Our children had many happy times there.
New slope, new ski stars, new generation of healthy youngsters ! Build for the future
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.
The Ski Village needs to be re opened
I learned how to snowboard here over 20 years ago, be great to see it back.
Such a shame .... Needs to be back open!!!!
We feel it's so wrong that this great facility has gone from Sheffield
Good luck on getting this open again
I had a great time learning to ski at the ski village. So sad it has gone
Keep the ski club it was fab !
A must to put Sheffield sports back on the map - RE-BUILD SHEFFIELD SKI VILLAGE
Make a snowdome
Sheffield is THE ski city! Bring it back!
This place is needed. NOT MORE HOUSES!!!!
The local area and people would benefit immensely if this place was put back in to order.
We need places like this to push the sport on!
Would be great to see it re opened
it is needed - support England's future racers and freestyler
As regular visitors, I organised lessons for a large group of children, they did extremely well, bring this wonderful facility back and make it better.
Keep the slopes open! One of the best things to happen to Sheffield!!!
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
Let's get this site back up and running and make it better than it was
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
Miss going up there, it would be a such a massive loss if it went permanently. Surely we can do something?
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.
Many happy memories
Make it happen. Please.
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.
I helped build the original SSV and it would be great to see the phoenix rise from the ashes!
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.
We need snow sports back in Sheffield. For example; for future athletes to be born, as an alternative recreation activity and jobs for Shefield.
Our kids are missing an amazing opportunity
I would love my kids to learn snow sports locally!
please bring back the slopes.
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
We just can't let this not happen. Simple.
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
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!
Open the ski village loads of people want it
Open ski village
A valued leisure facility which needs to be reborn.
Sheffield must be saved.
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.
Bring it back it was an absolute asset and could really help turn Sheffield around from this slump
A much needed resource to ensure future champions and keep young people fit
let's get the Sheffield ski village back open for future Olympians and to give the local youth something to do!
Shame that Sheffield CC appear to show no aspiration on sport - closing of the Don Valley Stadium, no support for the ski village
miss this place so much and the talent that came from the ski village shows how much it needs reopening.
Ski Sheffield - this has to be a sports concept that will keep sheffield on the map, along with indoor EIS!
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.
open the ski centre so my brother can go and snowboard and leave me alone about it.
Crying shame the ski village isn't being used. There must be some wealthy sporting bankers who could invest out there somewhere
sheffield needs all the investment it can get
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
Learned to ski here when I was 12, now 26 with 5 seasons under my belt, currently working at Whistler Blackcomb.
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.
Sheffield deserves a slope, kick out pullan and get started
Its vital to rebuild, without Rossendale I would never have snowboarded 15 years ago. Dry slopes are a must!
This is a must for sport in GB
Used to instruct at SSV until moving away in 2005, great facility and atmosphere, such a shame to see the current state.
Having attended Sheffield during my early instructor training years, I feel this unique facility must be resurrected to it's former glory as an excellent teaching/recreation facility. Stephen McKay BASI
Stupid arsonists ruining something fun and good for the community
Lets re-light the fire of snowsports in Sheffield. Do something worth your time and effort and get involved to make a positive development.
It is a sin to see such a magnificent facility in ruins
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.
After the success in Sochi this year we need to reinstate this important training facility for the UK'S young skiers
Sochi showed what the right resources can produce - let put the facilities in place for the next generation of Olympians.
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!
Home of british freestyle
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!
reopen it, such a shame to see it as it is now.
Don't loose the Sochi momentum; the Snowsport Centre is a fantatstic facility and provideds so much good. Don't lose it.
It's important we keep this important Northern facility for all future generations!
I Am in favour of more facilities for sport in Sheffield
Rebuild Sheffield Ski Village to bring back the fun and the place to foster the amazing talent of the young people of Sheffield.
Learned to snowboard at the village in the 90s! Amazing place!!
if we are going to winbig in the next winter olympics then we need this valuable resource
Let's re light the hill!!
A snowdome in Sheffield would massively successful.
Get it open!!!!!!
Bring back SNOW SPORTS IN SHEFFIELD
I think it is important that Sheffield has Skiing facilities .
Just what sheffield needs!!
bring the good times back
Spent a lot of my youth in this place (not once on the slopes) but some on the best days/nights an had my 30th hear! Good times perfect for EVERYONE an would be a credit to the City!! Cx
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.
Good Luck from the States!
If it wasn't for the oportunity to have skiing lessons at the village my family and I would never have gone away on a skiing holiday.
lets build a winter Olympics legacy! Sheffield's youth are owed this.
Would love to be able to take my 2 children to experience skiing/snowboarding was a great facility
It's really important for the sporting future for the next generation to have the opportunity to enjoy sport - a very important campaign good luck
My youngest son Nick worked there, both my sons enjoyed skiing and snowboarding there.
Bring back Sheffield's snow park!
if re-done it could attract tourits aswell as create jobs.
If we want to be as great as we once was then we need to provide the facilities to do this. Good luck!
Learnt to snowboard here
I love snowboarding and I hate the fact I have to travel so far to a different snow zone. it was my only hobby and now nothing much else to do around sheffield!
I learnt to sitski here. Would be great to see it reopen
Loved going to the ski village Sheffield needs it
get it reopened.
hopefully they will re open it
We need this ski village reopened for the next generation!
This would be another great improvement to Sheffield, Yorkshire and the region. My kids will have somewhere to enjoy their school holidays again, come on sheffield, make it happen!
Support the ski slopes
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.
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!!!
We need this, sheffield is a sporting city make it happen
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
Would be great to have a ski facility back in this city
Would love to get involved in the regeneration of the ski village, and would gladly volunteer to help. Regards Ash.
this should be a given...and no need for a petition...
we spent many happy hours at Ski village with our children as they were growing up. It would be great to see it back on the landscape.
Well done on a great initiative.
This placed launched many snow sports enthusiasts and , great athletes let's get it back up and running!
Enjoyed many an evening here .
Come on Sheffield City Council, you can help with this. We don't want to be travelling to Xscape, Chill Factore or Rossendale.
bring it back
I learned to ski here but my little boy, an avid skier aged 6 has to go to xscape. This place needs to re-open!
I worked at the ski village, i also.learnt to ski and board there. i saw the awsome impact the ski village had on kids and adults alike
It is shame council didn't agree to renovating plans few years ago which included the cable cars going to the tram, etc, and let it all go the ground. Would be great iv village would come back to life.
Terrible waste of local talent having nowhere to train.hope is reopened
To re vamp this ski school and give people a place to enjoy and learn for pleasure and competition is a must-do. M
A great loss, hopefully revived
Snow sport belongs in the Sheff!
'Bring it Back, Bring it Back. Bring it back to Me'
This would be amazing. The Ski Village was a massive part of my childhood and should be for Sheffield's next lot of boarders and skiiers
we need facilities like this to get kids an adults interested in snow sports for future olymoic success.
I learnt to snowboard at SSV, worked in the bar and also spent most weekends there for many years! Would love for it to to open again!!
this should be restored as the pride of Sheffield!
This needs to happen! Good luck and well done for trying to do something positive.
Save Sheffield Ski Village
it deffo needs to be brought back to life.it would be even better if there could be a mtb section and skills section as well.
Re-open the Sheffield ski village!!!!
A vital development for the city. It would complement the Little Kelham development and the regeneration of West Bar.
We travelled from chesterfield regularly to use the Sheffield ski village. Please can we open it again!
Sheffield and it's people need this activity back again!
Snow for Sheff
It would be fantastic to to see the ski village open again, the very best of luck to you.
Don Valley and this as well???
Essential to make Sheffield unique
Would bring investment, regeneration, jobs, people, money and bring back this accessible activity and opportunity for young people.
Support British Snow Sports...PLEASE
We need more places in the uk like this to inspire more of the younger generation into winter sports
I learnt to ski at the ski village
Started out at Ski Village in 92, still boarding today. Says it all really.
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.
We need a place to create more champions
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.
SSV is what go me started in skiing 14 years ago!
Would be great to see this facility brought back to the city! Good Luck!
I learnt to Ski here as a 10 year old and now my little boys willnever know the joys this place gave.
i just signed it
Would love to see the area reopened with an indoor slope.
Please support this and re-establish Sheffield as the City of Sport.
Bring it back to life. We used to travel from Telford dry slope for a day out because it was sooooo good.
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).
Bring on the half pipe
grew up hearing about SSV and always wanted to visit.... sadly i was too late
Sheffield Ski village is where a learnt to snowboard, it was a great facility. Sadly missed.
Sheffield is a natural outdoor playground. Adding snowsports would cement our city's reputation in this arena.
It was such a great asset for the city and needs to be resurrected for future generations.
I've spent too much of my youth on these slopes to see it go to ruin.
Sheffield should be the Snowport Centre for the UK
Such a facility should not be left to fall apart, nothing else like it nearby.
This would help keep the future of Snowsport in England strong and be of great benefit to the area
Reopen it!! We all need it especially the youth. It is the learning grounds of so many brilliant athletes. We need it back!!!
Bring back this great facility bigger and better
i used to love trips to the Sheffield slope, such good traing facilities for our snow atheletes
Please open this place it would be fantastic to have a great outdoor dry slope with in easy reach of Manchester
sheffield offers great sports opportunities both in and outdoor. Having a snow sport centre would add additional value to this great city
We have the ability, lets keep up the good work and give the athletes a dedicated training centre, for existing and up and coming competitors.
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
bring back the iconic ski village, but bigger and better. Also publicise the damn place.
Sheffield, City of Sport ???
Sceptical, but hopeful.
get it up an running
This has my full support! bring back ski Village
My children exercised and had fun there 2 days a week, we miss it and the community spirit there was.
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.
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
Our snowsports men and women need this!
Would love my kids to have the opportunity to learn to ski/snowboard on the doorstep.
The state of this ski slope is shameful for Sheffield - bring back investment to make this great again.
we need to establish a new snow centre for a city our size as the demand is there
sheffield need this
My grandchildren learnt to ski at Sheffield ski village!
I wish a better Ski Village can rise like a phoenix from the ashes, and be used for snow sports and mountain biking.
Don't destroy the ski village!!!
Sheffield Needs A Ski Slope, there is the demand, and there sure are the hills.
If we are to producere riders like James Woods In the future then we need State of the art places to train.
It makes so much sense.
It would be fantastic if Ski Village could be brought back to its proper use instead of lying derelict or becoming prey to developers. Let local kids get the opportunity to learn to ski and snowboard too
skiing is important
Save our ski facility in sheffield! i grew up using this amazing facility and would love my children to experience the same......
Learnt to ski here years and years ago
Bring it back to life!
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?
Reopen ski village!!
The ssv was a great place to work and ride I spent the best part of ten years skiing and working there making loads of friends and memories bring back the SSV !!
had some good time they we need open and running again
Liverpool needs one too!!
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.
The Ski village should be restored, it was and can be again an asset to the local area
Sheffield slopes should be used
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.
This centre has given some of Sheffield's children a future in winter sports and this year made them Winter Olympians. Please allow this centre to remain and be an affordable, local recreation park for Sheffield's youth.
The opportunity is there! Let's take it.
Rebuild it. We have such talent here and it needs nurturing .
Sheffield has the talent, now we just need the facilities
Bring back the Village!!!!
Far to precious to our youth to let it go....
I learnt to snowboard and ski at Sheffield. It was a great place
Please save Shef Ski village, It has so much to give!!
First the stadium, now the slopes. Save sport in sheffield
I would be amazing to have a new facility in the north
Me and my children had awesome times at Sheffield Ski Village xx
Get ski village back
Rebuild Sheffield Ski Village! I used to go every week but since it burnt down, there is nowhere else close enough to go frequently.
This is long overdue
Scandal that SSV was allowed to get to this state.
My son had ski lessons here the way it had been designed I think it could be used again I really hope so
Not every one can afford to go to snow domes every week. Dry slopes are still much needed.
Sheffield needs this for the future of snowsports in this country!
It was a fantastic place to go and hopefully will be again !
Bring it back! :)
Great shame for it to be left in such a state. Could be an asset for the city once again.
With our latest success at Sochi owing itself to athletes who were a product of Sheffield's snowsports, it would be criminal to let this place go. We need to Ski Village as a legacy to present and future snowsports athletes!
It's well needed
this was such an amazing ski village and dry slope where many brilliant talents came from including woodsy! please bring it back!
missed the opportunity to use the village back in the day, would love to go in the future
snow sports come home.
Used to race here :(
Would be great to get the Ski Village back! Would make a good place to go for SnowSports teams in the UK too!
It was such a huge loss when the slope went up, dont let it and the community it has created vanish!
I've skiied here, keep it open!
It's heartbreaking that this has been allowed to happen. ..
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!
I was there every week in the season. My kids started there.
used to be one of the best places to go in sheffield
We need these places for the kids to grow in!,,
My children all started their ski experience there.
vital for British snowsports
I used to go here everyweek and it started a life long passion for snowboarding. This place needs to be saved.
Come on guys this could be a great facility!
Essential for development of athletes.
Would be wonderful to renovate the shef ski village and turn it in to the largest snow slope in the uk.
Keep the ski village!
Don't get rid of these once amazing facilities that helped some of our athletes win medals at the winter games..
It's a legendary centre and should remain open for the community
We need this!
Bring snow sports back to Sheffield.
It would boost the local economy.
It should be kept, many people like James Woods started here and is now skiing for GB. We need it for future generations to perfect their skill.
There is no point of destructing this place, if it haves the potential to make skiers like Woodsy.
Always wanted to shred here looked amazing and friendly
Learnt to ski here when I was younger and made some good mates here don't want to see it go
Let it live!
I had some of the best times of my life here, and spent the majority of my happy childhood here! Please save SSV and get it back to what it was!
Save the ski village
Please save the ski village!
It would be great to bring the ski village back to life!
It must open again! Somewhere to take my kids to keep them entertained :) Can't xscape help out??
Support british sport
We need more recreational sports facilities not less.
Bring back Shef !!!!!
My two young sons have been inspired by the likes of James Woods, such a shame we now have nowhere for them to emulate him and become Sheffield's next SnowSport superstars.
What a travesty if this was to go....so much money plowed into mainstream sports that we forever fail at yet nothing into sports we have achieved in!
save our children's future.
learnt to ski here!
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…
Dont do this...
Bring ssv back
Keep the dream alive
This needs to be done
Keep the slope running!
This country needs more facilities like this to encourage more people to do these kinds of sports.Wasnt the winter olympics enough to show that they should be building more places like this, not taking them down!
stop fixing things that are'nt broken
It was boss
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.
Learnt to ski here, needs to stay as nowhere outdoor to ski close by at all
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
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.
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.?
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!
What about Olympic legacy?
I've skied here years ago. It should be redeveloped and made a centre of excelence for British snow sports. Just look at what talent came frome slopes like these, especially in Yorkshire!
Epic Balance is what these places deliver for the next gen. Swing the vote and get funding to expand and make more Epic Balance locations. pea ce
UK needs more places like this!
Don't throw away what idiots destroyed.
change this scar on the landscape back in to the home of future gold medelists.
Dont Destroy this place! its progression for athletes around the world
save our dryslopes!
It would be a tragedy for this facility to go. So many of our sporting facilities are being eroded in the UK, we will all be very sorry when our children have nowhere to go to participate in exciting sports, and no inspiration to succeed.
They destruction of a wonderful recreation area like this is an insult to the free skiing community which has influenced the area greatly.
It was an amazing, exciting facility . A great use of an inner city space. Shocking that it's waste land now
Such a shame for the city to lose this place
This place use to be amazing! Let get it back to being that way so more people can enjoy winter sports!
The ski village brought so many great times in my life, it should be brought back!
It would be a shame to see a great facility and legacy go to dust
Uk Snowsport wouldnt be where it is now without Sheffield ski village!
The UK needs every ski center it can possibly get.
Sheffield is known as the city of sport, and this is contributing to that!!
Got to keep this place alive to inspire the next generation of our youth to produce elite snow sportsmen and woman for our future.
i am a huge snowsports fan and i believe sheffield was key in the success of a number of succesful GB athletes as the Sochi olympics proved
A great place and a shame that we might not ever have a ski slope again
plz dnt close
Do not take away opportunity & inspiration .
We need more dry slopes in the UK, not less!!!
Amazing facility and breeding ground for some of our best winter sports athletes as well as fabulous place for community and drawing people to Sheffield
I would visit this place every week if it got rebuilt
We need more, not less facilities in the UK
I totally agree
I miss this place so much, it had such an amazing atmosphere! this place started my passion for skiing, thats for sure!
get it done.
Such a great facility, it should be reinstated and made better !
Everyone, every skiers need a place to practice, and this is one that should not disappear
If there's two things that Sheffield knows it's steel and snow!
It's such a shame to have lost such a fantastic facility in sheffield and huge waste to leave the ski village in it's terrible state of disrepair
we need it
One of the biggest losses to Sheffield in recent years. A sustainable, encouraging environment for snowsports. Bring back SSV!
bring snowsports backbto Sheffield
Winter sports are an essential part of sheffields recent heritige!!!
My son regularky attended Shark's skiing club what a shame youngsters will never get to experience the excitement of this sport in Sheffield.
Much needed sporting facility
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. Such a shame to see it go like that. Would love for the opportunity to take my little boy to a re-built ski centre and contribute towards giving it a sustainable future.. Good
It will be great to develop this land area into a facility that help to develop talent and promote active recreation
Keep up with your inspiring work. This means so much to our community.
It would be great to see Sheffield ski Village rise like a Phoenix from the ashes.
I took my children to the sheffield ski centre a number of years ago and thought it was a brilliant facility, I know there are a few real snow centres around now but the different direction slopes were quite realistic and it was a really good facility.
This needs to happen. I grew up skiing in sheffield along with so many others. So much good could come from this
fingers crossed, i learnt to ski at the ski village. it would be great to see it return
Great for the community, great for the young coming through who don't have access to the facility that we did.
it's where i learnt to ride and have so much fun over the years . one time i went to india and after coming home looking forward to some sheffield shred , no good , burnt and gone . i can skate everyday but my snowboard dont like the concrete so get the sheff back on point and let's have a skatepark there too .
The Ski Village was a great venue for the people of Sheffield and the country and it's something we should fight to have back
Such a shame this place has been allowed to remain like this or so long. Everything should be done to help get places like this thriving.
As a current non skier I would love somewhere close to home to learn the ropes...
Learnt to ski here please open it as now have two hour drive to ski.
Spent most of my childhood at the ski village, pains me to see it in such a state. bring back the good times!
The Sheffield Ski Village needs to be instated to bring up new talent and expose winter sports to as many people as possible.
Sheffield needs this
Please bring this back, such an awesome place!
Make this happen
Unique place sadly missed
City of sport!!!
Would be lovely to have this back, with the right Marketing and right maintenance the site would be brilliant!!
Such great memories of this place
The recent success in Sochi came from Sheffield slopes, that legacy needs to continue.
Given the devastation of losing Don Valley, surely Sheffield should be trying to get more sports facilities not less!
Snowboarding is my life. And it was so many others too. We need the Ski Village back
I met my wife at the Ski Village, now my kids want to be Olympic skiers. Bring skiing back to Sheffield!
Yes please, it would be great for Sheffield and great for UK snowsports.
Spent hours there it was fantastic. Would now like my daughter to have the same chance
Do it now!
Great idea! Also why hasnt a indoor ski village been built yet? Would attract people from all over the country if it was more than one slope :)
all for it....
Wonderful project and fully support objectives
Sheffield needs this! It was once a hub for snowsports and it can be again.
Keep us MTB'ers in mind :)
Lets give Sheffield the best dry slope in the Uk!
bring the skiing home (and maybe the old mountain bike trail too!)
Lot more fun than all the new ones!! Bring back Sheffield ski village :)
if you want future aki and snowboard star in future winter Olympics then you need sheffield ski village!! please!
Where I learnt to ski .we went every Friday
Let us have more things that encourage active, healthy lifestyles!
Investors wanted with the same courage, determination and dedication as our athletes, together with national sport or lottery investment. Come on England we can compete at world level, but we do need world class facilities.
amazing what was achieved at the olympics from starting on a dry slope.
after the sucess at the olympics how can the government not help get this back on the go!!
Sochi result demonstartes Sheffield's extraordinary track record. Deserving of support.
Build it and they will come...
this would greatly increase tourism in the area
This is so needed in sheffield, whatever happened to City pride?! I can only hope it succeeds so we can carry on having an Olympic legacy coming from sheffield in such a diversified sport sector
The Ski Village area/site has been left in a disgraceful state and this plan could be the ideal solution to regenerate the complex.
this place is a must as its an ideal establishment for outdoor activities and events for all ages.
Get it fixed up
Do not turn it into houses, like everywhere else! People need recreation, not just retail.
the time is now!
great effort, keep it going.
Got to support anything that helps cycling.
Save Sheffield Ski Village & Transform the area with Financial investment!
NY Sushi Big Bang Party's there were amazing
We needy puris
bring back the snow!
I was born in Sheffield, returned to Sheffield to read my degree, did lessons at the Ski Village, got a job there, became an instructor there, partied HARD there... Please bing it back, and make Sheffield whole again!
It's about time!
The mountain bike course would be an amazing addition to the sport and the local area, ideally placed to fill a massive gap in the spread of trails nationally.
Get the ski village back aswel as mtb developments
We need to make use of the facilities we have...it would be a crime not to.
the north needs another good downhill mountain bike venue
This country is desperate for lift access biking, get rid of all these fat kids, gangs and people something constructive to do, as a nation we are very good at the sport of Downhill, even with the very same amount of available riding spots, lets take control and show the rest of the world how it should be down. Come on Gt Britian
I'd be there in a flash!
Castleford is to far!!!!
Would highly suggest you include some kind of Mountain Bike uplift Downhill course, that way you will appeal to more than just one sport ;-)
Let Keep freestyle sport alive in the North alive
bring back the ski village!
Get this amazing facility back to its for we glory!
Need it back
Needs to happen
Snow bike either way is be happy
lets.get.the.ski village.back.and.running !!
Such a shame we are neglecting sports in Sheffield.
Be great to have this closer to home - superb potential.
Mountain biking should be tied in with snowsports in order to make the park work
Go Britain Go!!
Let's do this
Open the ski village back up.
give them what they need
This place needs to open back up , I love skiing but haven't been able to enjoy it as much as I would like too without the ski village
Yes this needs to be done!! We need to Re-establish Sheffield as the Snowsport Centre for the UK
This would be a very popular development.
Can't wait for the fun
Save the ski village!
All the references to Sheffield by the winter Olympians is testimony to why this should happen.
Be good to see this site developed again and saved from the abyss of being a derelict site
Would love to see it up and running
Be fantastic to get it looking amazing
Make sure MTB is taken into consideration when developing this site.!!
Let's create our next gold medalist!
BRING BACK THE SKI VILLAGE AND OPEN UP SOME MTB TRAILS
I did not realise until after Sochi what a massive place this was... and what a shame to see it left to rot for then the landowner to gain and just build houses on it. The UK needs more variety, and seeming as we don't get snow here to properly Ski/Snowboard on... resurecting this place must be on the agenda! Val D'Sheff!!
Let's bring it back :)
Let's make it happen!
Keep on Trying and Riding Guys! Great Work!
Make it happen
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
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.
please save for ski and mtb
Mountain bike & extreme sports enthusiast and also seriously considering a move to Sheffield some day.
build it and they will come
This needs to happen
We need places like this to encourage people into sport.
Would be good to have a lift to the top of the hill for Dh riders it would be a first
this needs to happen for the good of our city!.
get on it
A great facility that can only get better with support!
Please get this up and running again with ice wall and mtb site
There are plenty of other sites to build blocks of flats on...
Sheffield has an amazing outdoor/extreme sports scene. Instead of building football fields, lets do something different and create a UK first venue that has the potential to be massive for both Bike and Snowsports
Just as long as they also bring back the Vimto on tap from the bar then I'm all for it!
You don't get medal winners at the Olympics without facilities!!! Sheffield provided a number of competitors at Sochi, so let's give SHeffield the ski-slope it deserves!
Im a Sheffield Resident Student and have always wished this area opened for the public properly. It opens doors to available of Mountainbiking in Sheffield Massive to the ones who already do it and allowing more to get into the sport.
Mojntain biking tracks with lift access please!!
This has to happen!
The ski village was a great facility and on the back of the Olympics would be valuable for the community as well as developing future Olympians.
Let's make Sheffield the capital of sports for the UK
Sochi Olympians trained at Sheffield, help the next generation bring snow sport back to Sheffield
Much needed in Sheffield. Bring back the good old days
Get Sheffield back on the map for Snowsports in the UK!!
Re open the Ski Village for future olympians
Snowsport for all!
So many good memories attached to this place. Was nothing quite like taking off from a kicker with the city of Sheffield below you as a view. I hope for a day when more memories like that can be made again
It was a 'City of Steel', then a 'City of Sport' and for those of us who were there week in week out, it was a 'City of Snowsport!'
Sheffield = Snowsports!
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.
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!
Sheffield should be the snow sport centre for the UK
Having had to go to castleford to learn and then practice I would love to see the facilities right here in Sheffield!
I often train with Sheffield Ski Club (PPS) who train across the country because they can't actually train in Sheffield!
I both learned and taught how to snowboard at the sheffield ski village. Long Live Sheffield SnowSports
I started learning at SSK as did many others, its such as same Sheffield doesn't have what once was such a good snow sport facility.
bring snow sports back to Sheffield
My daughter learnt to ski at SSK and it made skiing a more accessible sport for everyone.
Everyone should have the same opportunity as I had!
SSK taught me how to ski and board, as well as to help behind the scenes to fit gears and tidy up the place...would be amazing to have the Ski Village back for a place to inspire more people like it did for me!
I miss this Ski Village!
Lets make this happen
Renew the ski village asap!!!
Ski village was soo inclusive a great place to go
my children had hours of fun and exercise at the ski village, this facility needs to be available for the next generation.
Sad to see it all die what a waste, bring back the snow sport it's a crime not to have a great facility up north again
Let's bring back the area that has done Britain proud with so many snow sports athletes.
Don't Let Sheffield Die!
Good work - sign up
Used to love this facility,would like others to be able to appreciate it as well
Sheffield is the outdoors city of the UK. Is live to see a new, we'll run winter sports place
Used to live in Sheffield, such a shame what hapened to the old centre, Sheffield needs & wants this...!
it is tragic that this facility is being lost for Sheffield ..my kids got into ski and snow boarding after attending ski party there !
Just do it!!!
I have had so many good times here please re open it
Just started snowboarding lessons and it would be so much better to have it on my doorstep rather than driving to castleford everytime
would be great to have skiing again in Sheffield. Great place for kids to learn.
ssv really built community
100 of children have benefitted ten fold from there experiences and friendships from the ski village, not only the Olympiads.
Sochi 2014 thank you Sheffield
such a waste, please help
Was up there on Saturday and took a few pics. It's going to be a massive job just stripping out all the trashed remains. Would love to see this facility rebuilt!
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.
It should never have got into it's current position, it was a viable business.
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.
A much needed facility in the north
we need this place back
This really needs to happen. It's sad still seeing the signposts around Sheffield..
So many of our Olympians and International athletes were involved with SSV, without it we will see a gap in Team GB come future Winter Olympics.
Let's make this happen
I learned to snowboard at Sheffield ski village in the early 90's, it was awsome then. I hope you re-light the fire.
Smoke da NS ganj
A facility that Sheffield desperately needs and I would love to see open.
Pls do this.
Please get this going we need it thanks!
wu tang is for the children
I support this petition
Sheffield died a little when the village burned away.
This is essential for uk sport !
bring this place back to its former glory!
Used to live SSV and it would be a waste of a great site to let it go to housing
Had a great time with my daughter, bring it back x
It would be a real asset for the city
These were once fantastic facilities - bring it back
I learned to ski here and would love my kids to
bring the Ski Village back!
hope this goes well
Bring it back please
Bring back the dryslope!
Sheffield needs something like this
Get your act together Sheffield Council and stop wasting money on pet projects.
Sheffield is a CITY not a village.
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.
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.
We need more snow sports in the midlands!
Ski village was sick should still be here
I think a large city like Sheffield should definitely have snow sport facilities.
Bring back SSV. xxx
Used to really enjoy using the ski village in Sheffield. What a shame that it has been left to detoriate since the recent arsen attack.
Get it back to its former glory.
Would love to see snowsport return to the local area rather than having to travel
i love ssv where i learned to love snow
Let's secure Sheffield as the home of slope style
would love the ski village to re-open.
please make this happen
3 Sheffield skiers in the Winter Olympics what more can I say? Bring back the ski village please
It Must happen GB needs this
My sentiments exactly. The Student games legacy has just recently been proven to be huge! but all the infrastructure's now gone/going.
Bring snow sport back to Sheffield
Bring back our ski village and heritage.
LET THE PEOPLE SKI
Yes, bring snow sports back to Sheffield! Built on seven hills it's made for this!
Jesus demands Sheffield has Snowsport Centre
Bring it back no question
please please please
Make Sheffield the Snow and Outdoor Sports centre of the UK and the gateway to an active lifestyle in the wider area e.g. Peak District!
This is a fantastic idea. Good luck.
good luck - it would be so great to get this going!
We need this to boost our chances in future Winter Olympics and to improve the health and well being of the surrounding community.
Who is seriously going to buy a house on that hill? Bring snow sports back to it alongside mountain biking.
Sheffield should be a ski meca again
how come the ski village hasn't been reopened yet?
Sheffield ski village is part of the history of our snow sports. We need all the facilities we can get to maintain the success we've had recently!
Necessity in our wonderful city. Two weeks watching Winter Olympics and half the kids there grew up on our slope. Give our children the same chance!!
Brin back Sheffield ski centre!!!!
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.
please reinstate ASAP
we need somewhere for current and future Olympic champions to practice
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.
Need it for Paco's generation.
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
My children are missing out! Bring this back!
Absolutely Imperative to keep snow sports in Sheffield and only way is people power!
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.
Please add my name
:D bring it back!
Learnt to snowboard there 15 years ago kids have to go to castleford in WEST YOrkshire now to learn gutted
What a wonderful idea!!
I miss SSV so much. Bring it back!
why does sheffield always close and get rid of places where we can enjoy and get fit
Sheffield needs this type of leisure activity if it is to become a major city again
Im a member of Sheffield Hallamshire Ski Club, and I'd like to see the Ski Village back to its former glory
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.
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.
Sheffield and the uk need ski village back
how can we not when olympic medalists learned their sport there?
We need to demonstrate that a Winter Olympic medal on snow and so many Britich competitors in Snowboard/Slopestyle events demands 'legacy' investment.
to really establish as a centre for snowsport in the U.K for training olympians, why not include a large length ice slide for use as a luge track ?
we need to have snow sports back in Sheffield
Sheffield ski village closure is tragic
It's an asset to the city
we need a snow dome of our own.
I really do think this is important
Greatest place I've ever been fortunate to frequent and the reason I chose sheffield university
Time to bring snow sports back to sheffield. If we want to continue the success of Sochi it needs to happen now.
It would give a lot of kids great opportunities
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.
sheffield needs a ski slope again. and shows how many local people went to the games this winter
Sheffield sv nurtured more talent than anywhere I saw in all my years travelling and documenting snowboarding on uk dryslope a and snowdomes
Life and heart of sheffield!
Sheffield is the outdoor and free sports capital. This adds, extends the offer and capitalises on the existing infrastructure and superb and inspiring Sochi athletes too!
Please reinstate this snowsport centre for the youth of Sheffeld and future success of British winter Olympians
Lots of hills, great sports infrastructure.
Keep sport available to all.
I learnt there about 12 years ago to snowboard
Good luck, a wonderful cause.
Bring back Sheffield Ski Slopes
Why is all around us closing down they keep telling our youth to get involved with sport but all facilities are closing
Bring back the sky village
Very sad at the demise of the Ski Village .Hope it can be rebuilt
Both myself and my 2 children learnt to ski at Sheffield Ski Village. We all mave some great memories. It was so sad to see it fall into decline and then suffer the fires.. It was a really buzzing place and a great place for kids and adults to socialise in a great enviroment. look at what people going there have achieved. We defimnately need to have this facility again. It's soely missed!
Sheffield needs a snowdome there nearest one is Castleford at the moment!
It is a much needed facility in order to capture future Winter Olympians!
this is what the UK snow scene needs
Hope the ski village can reopen as a proper snow dome
I think it was would a great if Sheffield was known for a City of Sport. Hopefully the Snowsport centre could be re-established for the benefit of the local people and future Olympians.
we need sports facilities in Sheffield they are all disapearing fast
Would love to be able to snowboard in Sheffield again, & for my children to learn there.
Just do it!
It's about time this Council looked to the future for this once great City.
Bring back the fantastic ski/snowboard slopes for everyone - you know it makes sense!
Used to ride there as a kid, and was a shame to see it go....
Progress at last.. Many thanks for the initiative.
rebuild this icon dry slope and then go build a fridge at J29a of the M1 while your at it please
this is a MUST for Sheffield. We owe it to our Olympians
I LEARNED TO SKI AT THE SKI VILLAGE AT THE AGE OF 56. nOW RETIRED THE ONLY WAY I CAN PRACTICE TO IMPROVE MY SKILLS, SO AS TO ENJOY MY ANNUAL SKIING HOLIDAY, IS TO TRAVEL TO CASTLEFORD. THE DOWNSIDE IS THE JOURNEY TO CASTLEFORD AND A SLOPE WHICH IS NOT AS TECHNICAL AS THE SKI VILLAGE SLOPE.
Great place, massively influenced my life
70 new houses will not put Sheffield on the map, a new Sowsports venue that breeds Olympic athletes WILL
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!
Sheffield Ski Village was a hub of the snowsports community, it would be a shame to let it rot.
Continue investment in snowsports and do this where the heritage is like Sheffield
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.
The place is still signposted, so it should be there. Please rebuild it
Please get snow sports back in Sheffield!
Come let's rule the world at this
we can't have a legacy with no facilities
After the incredible performance by our world beating GB Winter Olympic team what more evidence do we need to show with the right support & facilities we can take on the best & win! Come on Sheffield this is our time!
Feed Up of Everything thats being Taken away from Sheffield.
Get ski slopes back in Sheffield
We need this back in Sheffield
I have a lot to owe to the Sheffield Ski Village. Signing this petition is the least I could do...
bring real snow to sheffied please I love snow! everybody loves snow it makes us grin from ear to ear!
great memories of 15 yrs ago - got to bring it back to Sheffield
Couldnt beleive this had closed! Remember the amazing views from the slopse. Please reopen and give Britain more chances....look what we just achieved at Sochi.
I think its a great idea being a skiier myself
Lets get pride back in this city. We have shwn the world what talent we have and let's find more
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.
Such a valuable resource. It was a truly amazing facility where I learnt to ski.
Please help bring this place back to life.
Enclosed & with 'proper' snow hopefully!
Great cause, good luck
We need one
Please re-open and help get kids into sport instead of their xboxs.
HOW COULD A LABOUR COUNCIL ALLOW THIS BECOME, FROM LAND OF THE PEOPLE BECOME A PRIVATE HOUSING SCHEME? Seriously, how?
good times at this place
Would be great if this re-opened, had some great times there
Would be great to have it back open again.
Used to enjoy going to the ski village, miss it.
It's all about the 'S'. Sheffield, Snow & Sport!
Sheffield needs a snoe school
Bring back the slopes!!
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 !
Happy memories! Come back!!!
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.
This could be a huge boost to Sheffield if it were to go ahead. I urge one and all to get behind this venture!!!
bring it back to Sheffield!
I used to work here, be cool to snowboard again In Sheffield
I've missed this place so much, sheffield needs it back
Sheffield needs its own snowzone - sporting capital that it is aiming to be!
The ski village should reopen
Great to see some action, started what I thought was an i'ideal' a couple of weeks ago on Facebook.
I learnt to ski here 20 years ago and it is such a shame that at the moment so many youngsters are missing out on the chance to go there.
bring back SSV
Reopen our ski village
I learned to ski at Sheffield Ski Village almost 20 years ago and still remember how much fun it was!
I learned there more than far too many years then I care to remember ago!
I had an introduction to skiing at Sheffield and feel it is really important to keep the centre open.
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
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
Yes we love it, plastic fantastic.
Please open the slope I spent so many Happy Years working.
Need it badly
Support our kids to learn and love all sports
Perfect opportunity to create a new generation of freeskiers.
if you cant get it up and running. Buy some plywood and turn it into bike psrk
I agree this should be a snowsports freestyle breeding ground for future Olympians
Support this 100%
This is where British talent is created.
a must for english snow sports
Good luck, I would love to see Sheffield Ski Village re-opened.
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.
After the best Winter Olympics for GB this place must stay open for future generations of athletes
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.
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!
We need a snow sports centre
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.
Should never have been neglected in first place!!
" 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!
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
the systematic degeneration of Sheffield must stop right here and now.
It was such a shame to see it close down! Let's get it open again and run better! Better access this time!
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.
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.
This where we learned to ski
Myself and the wife have used the facility. Really impressed with how it was run. Needs opening again.
Fully support all the efforts to achieve this.on the Sochi games proved that having this facility available for everyone in our society.The geography of the area is also a natural place that also needs further development. good luck
Bring it back into action and encourage young people to get involved. Make it affordable.
GET IT BACK
would be amazing to bring back to life the place that has given birth to Olympic stars!!
on behalf of my 12 yr old daughter , the future of sheffields sport , good luck
Build a newer better ski village in sheffield
At last someone with a brain in sheffield, I support this group fondly as both of my sons enjoyed many a very happy ski at the village, my eldest son also worked there as a safety helper on the slopes when it first opened.. Bon ski..
This worthy asset that deserve funding from Sport bodies & the Lottery as it has & could help present & future Winter Olympic Winners. Wishing the Campaign Every Success. Hope you also install a Snow Machine
Lets see the ski village open again
Will be good for Sheffield again
It should never have been left closed this long in the first place
Where it a began! Look at where it has brought us all! No brainier Sheffield, bring it back now!
I learnt to ski many years ago at Sheffield ski slope and took my kids there to learn let's give local children something exciting and affordable to do
It would be brilliant to have the Ski Village up and running again.
This Ski center is of critical importance to the whole of Yorkshire. The sooner it returns the better for the wider community and economy.
lets get it back
Would be Great to see it reopen...
After all the recent coverage on local news I wonders if someone would try to get interest generated in a new centre.
BRING IT BACK
Get it re-opened
My daughter and her friends loved the ski club every Saturday. She still loves skiing even though she never made it to being a champion! Bring back our ski and board slopes.
There is a gaping hole in Sheffield since the ski village closed. Fond memories aside the facility must be regenerated.
Please make this fabulous and accessible to all families resource available again
If this lot keep demolishing our sports arenas the only sport our chil.dren will be able to play is tiddlywinks
It would be great to get this back up and running.
lets get 6 medals next winter olympics
this needs to be done
A fantastic addition to make Sheffield stand out from the rest
This has to be rebuilt.
I'm sure building houses was the land. Owners intention from the time he bought it!
What a shame this was allowd to fall into the state it is in, bring it back.
Bring SSV back!
loved the place bring it back please :-)
If we want to win more medals we need to invest more money into the sports.
It's so important to invest more in facilities like this!
In light of our growing success at the winter Olympics, how can facilities like this not get funding?!
The only way to improve on the success we all enjoyed watching in Sochi is to invest in facilities.
a sad loss, bring it back
City of sport are we not......
Even though it has been years since I used the ski village - I used to go every week to ski and it encouraged me to try other sports.
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.
you know it makes sense
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.
The facilities have to be there to encourage and stimulate our snowsporting individuals.
Do it. This would be soooooo sweet
Don't just bring it back, make it even better!
Long live Snowsports!
Bring back the slopes :)
Great university memories racing here against Manchester and Sheffield, An old Leeds Snowrider.
Please re open
Please save sheffield ski village.
Tragedy what has happened to ssv.
bring it back!!!
Sheffield needs this back, such a loss
In support of my friends children who ski and need a training facility...
This NEEDS to happen...lets push british snowsports,
Still ski my local dryslope. All the best!
If you build it, they will come.
we need the ski slope back to give future skiers a chance of world class competition
BRING IT BACK!! WE NEED MORE SUPPORT FOR SPORT!!
Just do it! We spend enough money all all the other stuff.
save da whales
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!
can never do too much like this for kids
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?
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.
3 great years of riding here
first time i had ever put a snowboard on was here, i was nine and would love to go back and shread again!
Learnt to ski here
Sheffield likes to call itself the city of sport. They've already demolished Don Valley Stadium, please re-estblish the ski village.
Learnt to ski at the ski village
Shame on Sheffield if it allows ski village to decay and disappear (replaced by houses!) Sheffield has shown that it has talent in snow sports.
Let's make the most of ours hills and invest in our future
I travelled every week from Liverpool, for my son to ride snowboard. He became British Dry Slope Champian and represented GB
South Yorkshire is a deprived area and resources such as this need to be cultivated and protected for the local people and the next generation.
A National Disgrace not investing in the centre that helps our talent to grow
To not save is to give up to those who choose to terrorise our home.
Save it - we can't let another sporting facility in the City die.
Bring back the ski village, sadly missed by all.
we need more facilities not less, inspire our youth to reach for the stars...
Very important to re-establish this ideal site for Snowsport. Do not let the council take it over for housing. First Don Valley - dont let the Ski Village go the same way.
Sheffield needs to start moving forward we are being left behind by many citys bringing back the ski village is a great start .
Shameful this facility has been allowed to get into this state.
Bring back ski village!
Such a shame to see the decline of yet another important sport facility in Sheffield
bbc radio sheffield really want to talk to someone about this today but time is running out. can you please call 0114 267 5440 and ask for kate or wendy?
Please give us a snow sport centre in Sheffield for future champions
I love skiing, the only thing stopping me from doing it more is the lack of local facilities
Give the upcoming local talent a sporting chance
A very necessary facility to inspire, encourage and train future athletes and generations.
Sochi 2014 has clearly demonstrated that we can be a Winter Sport Nation. Given better facilities, imagine how much better we could do and how much wider the opportunities for participation could be.
Put a covered real snow slope on there
never been and got young kids
I learnt skiing aged 9 here!
love this place
We need a facility like this in Sheffield. It opens up an elitest sport to everyone.
Stop our brilliant athletes having to travel abroad to train.
Everything that can be done, must be done to keep a ski training facility in Sheffield
Great legacy for the UK and the local community in Sheffield
I went to so many birthday parties here when I was younger.
Sheffield years behind other major cities but how many have hills like ours? SO USE THEM
great memories of Sheffield ski slope from 90's
I broke my elbow racing at Sheffield but always loved the place!
Just look how well the young ones did in Sochi
We need good facilities to develop the potential of our young skiers and snowboarders
This is a no brainer, make it epic once more!
Sheffield needs this back
we need this
We want it staying as a ski village
We should not have to plead for basic sporting facilities!
Bring back the ski slope!! It's greatly needed in Sheffield.
We need all the help and encouragement we can get, to help our talented young people achieve their dreams.
A city with seven hills and no ski slope is like a bird with no wings !!! We need Snowsports back in Sheffield !!!
open open open!
Re-Open Ski Village!
Would be amazing.
THis is gping to a good cause, please keep signing
lets get it back up and running. i think they will need brand sponsors and make it affordable
Fantastic cause guys. I look forwardto seeinghow the project progresses. All the best. Joel
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.
DO IT DO IT DO IT DO IT!
Having created massive interest at the Sochi Games it is ludicrous to throttle British Snow Sports at Birth by closing these facilities.
we need this
make it happen
Madness closing this. Typical of the council closing these facilities when it is most needed!
Learnt to snowboard here, would love for it to reopen!
This could be a wonderful opportunity for Sheffield and South Yorkshire - so many happy memories of the old Ski Village
I learnt there, taught there, and spent a lot of time riding up there. Without the Ski Village I would never have been able to get into snowboarding.
I went for one of my first rides on that slope. Save it.
Was shocker when found out the ski village had closed this place gave my son bags co fidence whenhe had been bullied at school
With dedicated trainers, the Sheffield Ski Village produced champions. Where will the new generation get a chance like that? Not at expensive indoor facilities, that's for sure!
I need somewhere local and cost effective to learn to snowboard, the indoor centres just aren't worth it for me.
We need this.
Katie And Molly are my cousins it has to be done!!!
I like ski
This would be an awesome facility for Sheffield and indeed for the UK as a whole. Last autumn I had to travel to the USA to train at a decent indoor ski facility. Having something like this would benefit all action sports enthusiasts in the UK. Would use it for sure.
Rhode Island USA
I feel that if we want to see the progression of british snowports we need a venue like this so many of our athletes need a venue like this. Help grow British winter sports
definitely what this city needs
save the shred
We need these facilities for you g and old for fitness and encourage future sports people
Great news, current situation is a real shame.
regularly used and worked at ski village for 4 years when I was studying in Sheffield - learnt 90% of all tricks I can do on dryslope - essential for future freestyle development!
I still can't ski, but I really want to learn! So I can shred with my boyfriend!
Get it back up and running
Loved this place never even snowboarded or skied there but just hanging out with mates at the bar after a good session at the house skatepark was good.
As I was saying, Other businesses are reaping the benefits of ski/snowboarders in this area. Woods is an inspiration to all the young skiers out there. Why not give them one of the best training facilities in the UK back?
These type if facilities are essential for the growth of our countries involvement in winter sports.
It's a shame to lose this
Everybody needs to rip lines and slam park. Other businesses arre
We need to invest in facilities to produce future champions
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!!!!!!
Sheffield should show some pride in its facilities not just run them/knock them down like Don Valley..be better than not less than!!
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.
Any opportunity to deliver safe and fun sporting activities should be taken. Build on the Winter Olympics legacy!
Sheffield council could not run a bath, and if you have a business they go out of there way to fuck you up
skier from cas go SKI VILLAGE
Grown up with the ski village, even my parents met there. I was so upset to see it close
best of luck id definetly come down and shred
I murk a lot of bad snitches
bring it back!
Good times, bring them back.
Let's fight for this!!!
Bring back our slopes!!!!
Saw this on NS. Good luck!
The Olympic legacy is all sports!
We have so many resources in Sheffield to make this viable again.
Sport should be funded
Hope this works!
Come on now
Massively important to UK snowsports, hope people will listen once they see the passion from this petition
My life and my business have been shaped from snowboarding and it started in Sheffield Ski Village, I hope it grows and develops too with this petition
Such a shame it's gone. Would be a great facility and asset to sheffield to encourage the next generation.
Don't just re-build one in Sheffield, build more like this in the UK!
i learnt to ski and snowboard here! now i cant do either because all other slopes are so far away.
Great idea, hope it happens
Awesome way to cement an olympic legacy...
This would be great for Sheffield & the U.K.
The place is so rundown now, get this place up and running again! Clean up!
Bring snowsports back to Sheffield!
there is no better sport than snowsport
This needs to happen!
Without the SSV I wouldn't have ever had the chance to experience the amazing feeling of Snowsports.
please re open! :)
Really supportive of this idea. Travelling all over the UK to follow my passion for snowboarding. Having something in sheffield supporting the scene of snow sports again would be a huge plus for the next generation of snow sport olympians.
Was only thinking the other day as I looked across the valley to the Ski village what a shame it wasn't functioning anymore
This was so important to my son and his friend when they learnt to snowboard.
Don't let this great ski and snowboard complex go totally to waste it can be saved
Dry Slope's are where it's at!
a much needed facility
We need this facility
Never skied at Sheffield but really sad to see its demise from a great local asset.
hope this helps
As a British boarder I feel that there is not enough good quality resources for people to progress in their discipline and Sheffield being one of the best is a big loss!
Really hope this works!!!
It would be great to have the ski village back for all to enjoy. I'd love my kids to learn to ski there just like I did.
Snow sport is huge! We cannot be the. It's of Sport without it!
This would be great :-!
This has to happen. Look at what we achieved this Olympics! More please.
Bring the Phoenix ski village back from the ashes!
Skied there years ago. Really disturbing to see it in such a state. What a waste of facility.
City of sport is falling short!
This place was over looked by Sheffield council, it's a shame as it has produced some really good talent
Get it open!!
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.
We should have our own better indoor slope, pre built slope.
We need a choice if sport & in Sheffield!
should bring it back
My grandson went thre and we really do Ned this as is stated for the next generation.
Bring it back
bring back Ski Sheffield - great part if the citiy's history
Would be great to have another facility on the site, such a shame that it lies in ruins.
My grandsons loved the Ski Village
REGENERATE the ski village not been the same without it!
SEND IT SON!
We need the ski village back!
This would be a great way to build on our success in Sochi
This is the future!!
Let's build on Sochi 2014 with some new great facilities
Sheffield needs a Snowsport centre PRONTO
do it now!
Loved it ...
Awesome, lets make it happen!
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
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.
Bring back the carpets!!!
All the best.
We love shelf ski village
Needs to happen
Sheffield Ski village is where I learnt how to ski and snowboard, with it I probably would never have took up the sport
we need all the ski and boarding venues we can get!
FOR SNOWSPORTS AND SHEFFIELD
A travesty that the facility was not rebuilt years ago. We wamt Olympic medals then we need the facilities.
So many of our top skiers have used Sheffield for training i, aerobatics into the pool , the amazing half pipe, get it back!
Britsh talent needs the investment in facilities to allow our up and coming athletes to achieve their dreams.
Why are these things funded and encouraged elsewhere and allowed to go into disrepair or be demolished in Sheffield?
Bring back the ski village
A fish can hear what your thinking just before you sneeze
Rebuild this facility. Given the opportunity there are countless people who will get involved in making it work.
Rebuild the ski village - it's a brilliant resource.
There has been so much talent pass through Sheffield over the years that it would be such a pity not to build on that legacy and the success of Team GB at the Sochi Games.
I support this, Sheffield Ski. Village is where I first learnt to ski!
we want our ski village back or an indoor snowdome
Great idea... good luck.
This could win GB gold at the olympics!
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
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!
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!
I loved learning to ski here and the half pipe and jumps area was so fun :)
A valuable facility that needs reinstating
The next generateion of freestyle skiers need this facility to learn, train and reach their full potential.
We need it for our children and grandchildren,please give them the chance to shine through for Great Britain.
Long Live Sheffield Ski Village!
re open sheffield snowsport centre
ski village was my local slope, wouldnt be skiing now if it wasnt for that place.
Learnt to snowboard here, great instructors and great dry slope
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.
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
pleas pleas pleas
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!
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.
We need all the facilities we can get.
this needs to happen
bring on 2018
It seems i spent half of my youth there,It makes me sad to see it in such a sorry state
Snow rather than carpet would be preferable this time
The infrastructure to rebuild the ski village is already there
Ski village has provided so much for so many people. Really should be rebuilt!
Without Sheffield ski village, freestyle would not be where it is today,
We had many snowboard events here in the 80/90's its so sad to see it go to rack an ruin
Sad to see the current state of the Sheffiled ski centre. Any facility to get young people involved in healthy outdoor execise should be encouraged.
Please please please
I learned to snowboard here and spent many hours on the slopes
wouldn't it be nice....
Young people deserve a chance to ski and board.
Bring it back!!
Dryslope a are so important for developing British Talent; centres like Sheffield are critical to produce future Olympic Athletes
Get it done!
do something with the site other than more houses that sheffield doesn't need.
Sheffield is my home slope, was devastated when it was burnt down. This would be awesome if it happened
After all the BBC films on how it produced so many good skiers, how can they not rebuild it.
Skiing at ski village back in the day are still threat times of my life.
Get an indoor snow slope built! Hill is already there!
SSV much missed...new facility much needed!
it could be so much better than it was, come on bring it back to Sheffield
Shame it has ended in the state that it is in. Bring it back for the next generation of young UK rippers!!!!
open it up again.....get kids.off streets and doing positive things
Bring SSV back to life been away for too long!
Please bring back Sheffield
Be awesome to have it back...I learned to board there over 20 years ago
Most of my youth was spent here,would love it to come alive again!
would love this fab facility to re open
I am pleased to see that someone is trying to do something about this issue.
Our city's facilities seem to be being butchered one after another out of greed and spite, hopefully this will go part way to healing the sporting nature of Sheffield
Sheffield was once the best dryslope in the UK - it is a shame that such a great slope has been allowed to fall into such disrepair.
This idea can only be a good thing for the future and accessibility of snowboarding!
This has to be done
Bring back the steel
I love this plan.
great time learning to ski and board here! do the right thing! bring back the sheff city ski village!!
Was an awesome venue with an atmosphere second to none...having it back would be awesome :D
We love skiing would be great to have it so close.
DO IT DO IT
Bring us back the good old times and give the youth a chance to thrive!!
Let's get this back
We need this facility to train future Olympic hopefuls
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
Miss that place :(
Lets have another generation of Winter Olympics hopefuls train here too. Make snowsports accessible for everyone!
please let woodward make profitable camp in uk
get involved people x
my boys miss their weekly ski and hanging out at the slope.
Some of the best times in sheffield were working up that slope, bring it back!
Please bring it back!!!
my daughter misses skiing
Sheffield shud lead the way
Need to bring back some kind of snow/ice activity to sheffield
Help keep the dream alive!
Be great to see this facility re-opened.
Be great for the whole family to have it back
What a great idea. This has my full support.
make snow sports accessible for all
For the future
Vital for Sheffield
might of doubled olympic haul if it had been looked after, lets look to the future not the past and go for more next time
Our most successful Olympic hopes grew up at places like this (most at this one!). We have to save it!
Lets put Sheffield back on the map, and give ourselves a fighting chance to get some more medals at the next Winter Olympics.
Bring on the second coming
Awesome idea. The ski village is greatly missed :(
This would be great if it was rebuilt & it to be similar to Woodward.
Sheffield needs such a facility for the nex tgeneration
I will do aching for this back!
great idea. We would definitely use it.
Whatever happens, someone needs to get Sheffield Council on board...
Sheffield should have such a facility after the devastating loss of the skis slope.
this would be good for snowsport, Sheffield and kids for miles around sheffield
If a new drysope training facility was to open, more future Olympians would be produced
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.
Wishing you good luck -it deserves to succeed
This would give something good to do in Sheffield!
Key to progression of UK snowsports! I loved Sheffield Ski Village!
Many good times were spent at the Ski Village - would be wonderful to have it back!
Sheffield needs to keep up its sporting legacy
Summertime shred needed!
Make it happen, please!
It will be great for future Olympians to come test out there skill and learn some new things!
Grew up skiing here and it'd be amazing to see it back!
Please build something rad so that kids can go and shred. Take a look at what WOODWARD does in the states! Truly epic!
The ski village was awesome its a shame the right people weren't running it cause if it had some great backing then people would have travelled from all over the countryto use it.
please reopen I learned to ski there with my 2 children
Heard so much about the ski
I'd take up snowboarding tomorrow if we had the facilities with real snow!
Sochi showed folks what GB can produce with faff all, lets see some investment in top notch facilities and reap what is sowed!
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!
Been wanting to see a 'Woodward' style facility in the UK for a while.
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.
Rebuild and reopen.
it wont help me in anyway with Cairngorm nearby but its needed for our future freestyle athletes
Would be awesome if they got the funding to create a snowdome rather then the old mess like slopes
Rude not to
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!
Sheffield ski village offers so much to the community please bring it back.
I rode there for years and had some amazing times.
Let it be
Bring back Sheffeild Ski Village as the UK's largest and BEST indoor ski centre!
Long live SSV!
This is an absolute no brainer!!
I used to love this dry slope
save the ski village
Jenny Jones got Bronze .let's better that.but we need the facilities; )
It such a shame that the place a good proportion of the Olympic squad grew riding is gone, lets bring it back and make it better
Had some great times racing here
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.
Snowsports isn't just about competitions, it's about having fun. Let's make it accessible for everyone.
This is a great way to encourage youngsters to get involved in a great sport.
An excellent idea and would be a great boost to the local area!
An ideal moment to seize on the legacy of the winter games, and build a centre to hone our next generation of medal winners.
bring back ski village
Speaking as a skier from the age of three and as a BASI trained instructor, I believe Sheffield needs to regenerate it's once thriving snow sport scene.
Hope this goes through, since we dont have many mountains we need top training facilities like these
I'd love to see some snow sports facilities back on Sheffield, they've been greatly missed
Great idea there's some great stars come out of those slopes
Much needed facility for the UK
please make this happen!
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.
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.
Fantastic facilities back in the day and much better than our 'fridges' despite it being a dry slope.
Invest in the future.
Sheffield people deserve the chance to use such facilities on our own door step without having to travel to other areas to use theirs
This is a great idea. What plans are there to bring this to the attention of the council ?
uk needs facilities that are fit for purpose
This is so so important - I really hope this can happen. Good luck!
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?
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.
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
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.
This is a great thing for uk ski and snowboard
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.
Spent many a day at SSV when I was student in Sheffield, best of luck!
Bring back the Ski Village!
Sheffield ski village! Better vibe than any dome for sure.
We need facilities like the a Snowsport centre for Sheffield to help encourage the next generation to partake in Snow sports and activities.
The land needs to be used for snowsports use again!
Why let Leeds area become more prominant than Sheffield. Invest for our youth
SHEFFIELD NEEDS THIS!!!!!!!
Get it sorted
Please get the ski village back running!
get Sheffield back on map
Let's get Sheffield skiing again! (and snowboarding)
About time there was winter sports in Sheffield again.
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
What a waste to see the state of the ski village now - especially after the Sochi sucesses.
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 :(
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.
So important to fight for things like this for our future generations
Bring snowsport back to Sheffield
Look forward to a re-emergence
We need a snow center back in Sheffield
Bring back the ski village!!
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...
Loved the ski village, bring it back for the people who ride.
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.
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.
I would welcome the re introduction of facilities to further snow sports in Sheffield
my children are so excited about the winter olympics and i would love to give them opportunity to follow their dreams.
This wud make me a better person !!! Boom !!
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.
Will be awesome to see this site back up and running! massive shame to see such a great facility go to waste
Don't let today's vandals spoil opportunities for tomorrow's sport heros
we want skiing back in Shaffield :)
so many great people and times at what was SSV
Let's create some future Olympic champions!
A small, cheap dry slope is all we need. No big unsustainable project.
Make winter sports more accessible by supporting this
Some of my fondest memories were of time at the ski village, it shaped my life more than I could've thought possible.
Sheffield is a sporting city we need this up snd running again.
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!
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.
I was very disappointed when the ski village closed. I'm sure someone could make a go of it or something similar in Sheffield.
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
I wholeheartedly support this
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
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.
this needs to happen!
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.
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!!
Please do this!!
Help the forgotten City of Sport
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.
bring it back!!
Let's do it!
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.
Bring back the best U.K. Training facility
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.
Sheffield. City of Sport they say. Let's prove it!
This is exactly what 'Olympic legacy' should be all about.
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
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.
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
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.
The ski village site needs to be utilised. Sheffield should capitalise on its sporting potential and the enthusiasm of its residents.
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!
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.
Even if you are not a snow sport fan this is a great thing for sheffield.
Yet another great way to involve in sport, wasted
Bring Back SSV
bring back sheffield ski village!!!!!!
bring snow sports back to sheffield so we can raise champions again!
Bring it back for future Olympians
Snow power to the North.
This is a very worthwhile cause
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!
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!
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.
Seems a bit rubbish actually guys. What are the details? Don't want that horrible carpet back.
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.
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.
Miss this place, met so many great people here.
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 levels..it 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.
Sad to see it in the state it's in at the moment. Such a waste!
Bring back SSV. Love the place always will. Please sign xxx
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
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.
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.
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.
my introduction to snow sports, too much potential to lose
Big shame what happened to SSV. Lots of good memories and a constantly clicking thumb thanks to that place.
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.
Ski facilities as well as job opportunities for Sheffield
Sheffield Snow facilities changed my direction in life lets get it back
Bring back the ski village and the facilities it offered to those who could not afford the luxury of overseas snow.
We can't let this opportunity pass!!
Yeahh get a fridge built
need to be rebuilt I sent 6 years of my life going they it was brilliant!
Got to have the opportunities to find the natural talent
The Ski Village was an intregral part of my experience of being a student in Sheffield and it is sorely missed.
If the ski village isn't replaced, kids will never develope into winter Olympians!
Sheffield Ski Village was such an amazing venue and influential part of my life. It was tragic to see it go - it must be brought back.
Please bring it back
bring back the ski village and put snow on it
Bring back alpine skiing to Sheffield!
Sheffield has proved it is able to provide the personalities to excel at sport...now let's have the facilities please.
a must keep facility
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.
how can we have winter Olympic medalists with no facilities!
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.
Hopefully we will see this back as it was if not better after seeing the fantastic results in the winter olympics by team GB
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.
Should never have got in the run down state in the first place. A new centre of excellence with more activities is a must.
The North needs a premier outdoor Snowsports facility again. We need to be training tomorrow's Olympians now!
The our future Olympians
Most other sports have centers of excellence why not skiing
Appropriate given the strength of recent Winter Olympics
We need a permanent place for freestyle to be practised and indoor slopes cannot achieve this.
The SSV was my 2nd home from the first time I skied there. It was my favourite place to be anywhere, it was perfect.
WE LOVE SHEFFIELD AND WE LOVE SNOW! Bring ski village back!
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
this was the place i learned to board without it i would never been able to enjoy snowbaording as much as i do know
It is what Sheffield needs to keep youth positively occupied, attract people help the economy. (I used to drive from Manchester)
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!
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 !!
Unfortunate that we lost this facility five olimpians in team gb at Sochi learned and trained at this facility
Open it again people need it
Let's get this thing moving
Is this not what the 2012 Olympic legacy was all about. We have aleady lost our key athletics stadium
Simple. Really good memories of snowboarding at the ski village. Fantastic vibe, fantastic facility. Love love to ride there again.
Loved ssv! Was my fave place
Looking forward to a new establishment in Sheffield to support local businesses
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.
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.
Sheffield ski village is too good of a resource, not only to the surrounding area but also too future hopefull athletes alike.
viva la ski village
bring skiing back to sheffield
Let's get this sorted
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!!!
I do not know how you have the cheek
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!
Let's do it
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 :/ !!
This is a must. Such a waste to not get it going again.
I know all the kids who were in the Olympics ,and have skied ate the Sheffield ski village for 16 yrs!!
lets get the ball rolling
Please build the ski village again bigger and better then it ever was beforehand. And would do anything to help
This needs to happen, it's important to so many people and it can be an inspiration to so many others.
Olympic dreams start here!
Sheffield needs a ski slope, run by winter sports enthusiasts who are motivated by the progression of the various winter sports and inclusion for everyone
really hope this is successful!
Let's see this happen. A worthwhile cause and will undoubtedly put Sheffield on the map as a destination for sport facilities, lacking in other cities.
It's part of our heritage!
A snowsport venue returning to Sheffield is viable and much needed!
Having produced 3 freestyle competitors at this years Winter Olympics it's outrageous that there is no facilities for the next generation in sheffield
Lets get this going!
Let's put sheffield back on the map for winter sports
It would be great to make the most of our hills and build an indoor slope on them!
Here's to the day snowsports return to Sheffield!
As a Sheffield snowboarder I fully support this!
Bring back Ssv
Sheffield needs it's ski/snowboard facilities back, in my humble opinion it was the greatest leisure asset Sheffield has ever had.
Bring back SSV!
Make Sheffield snow sports capital in GB :)
Bring back ski village it is great asset to Sheffield
Yes yes yes!!
we need to bring the ski village back to let the next generation create the memories we all hold in our hearts
Bring back snowsports to sheffield, help to inspire future generations with fun and fulfilling physical activities, healthy lifestyles that motivate and instil confidence, whilst aso developing social skills and understanding.
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!
It was an inspiration for many and a massive loss ...
Loved working with so many different people and teaching them so they could share my passion bring it back
Olympian training ground that's all the proof you need
The Sheffield ski village is where it all began for me over 15 yrs ago since then I became a snowboard instructor and watched all the people in the GB Olympics come through the ranks as kids. Bring Back Sheffield Ski Village
Bring it back, To many good riders have come from there.
Miss working at the ski village so much
Would be great for the city to get the ski village up and running again.
Many happy hours were had at the village, keep it there so folk can have many more :)
The loss of the Sheffield Ski Village has left a hole which needs to be filled. Great work.
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?!
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
