*A building development company is planning to build an indoor ski resort and extreme sports centre in
Tyrellstown, County Dublin, which it claims could lead to the creation of up to 700 jobs.

“International experience is that in a recessionary environment leisure spend tends to be pretty resilient. People are drawn towards escapism and similar facilities in the UK have been performing well”.
In Manchester the fee for 90 minutes skiing including equipment hire is around £24 and Mr Larkin said he expects the pricing model for “Snowtopia” to be broadly similar.
The company expects up to 1.5 million visitors a year to a development that will include a paintball centre, digital theatres, a gym, restaurants and retail outlets. *
Ballsy, that’s for sure. But will it be Snotopia or Snojoke?
