Sheffield to become world class Extreme sports destination

Sheffield ski village and the surrounding area is a step closer to making a ramped up return to the city as part of a world-class sports, leisure and entertainment development bringing hundreds of jobs to the city.

Sheffield Council has appointed the EXTREME Destinations-led consortium to deliver a 48-acre long-term sustainable EXTREME branded sports, leisure and entertainment solution at Parkwood, Sheffield’s country park in the city, following a competitive bidding process.

An initial 100 new full-time jobs are expected to result from the £22.5million development, which should see the re-instatement of Sheffield’s much-loved ski slopes and MTB tracks in phase one of the project.

The agreement between Sheffield City Council and EXTREME Destinations, in partnership with leading UK facilities operator Continuum Attractions, will see the development, provision and operation of a world-class sports and leisure ‘experience’ complex with exciting and modern facilities for residents, tourists and action sports enthusiasts alike in the heart of Sheffield city.
