New sustainable dry ski slope in Stockholm

On Wednesday, September 7, 2022, a 500 m long artificial ski slope will open in the Hammarbybacken ski area in the middle of Stockholm. Regardless of the season, Stockholmers and guests can then ski on Neveplast's state-of-the-art NP30 Freeski Sustainable mats. These create conditions similar to natural snow and are equally suitable for beginners as well as advanced skiers.

The total area of ​​Neveplast's new synthetic ski slope is around 9,000 m², with the upper area forming the 1,500 m² "Skistar Snow Park". It is equipped with figures such as jumps, boxes, and rails. The whole dry ski area is served by a 270 m long tow lift and has a capacity for 120 skiers.

The actual ski slope begins a little below the snow park. It is 470 m long and has an area of ​​7,500 m². It is designed for beginners as well as for advanced skiers who want to train. The pitch of the slope is up to 30 %. For beginners, there is a 35 m long ski school area.

The Stockholm ski resort of Hammarbybacken is operated by the listed Swedish company Skistar, which owns a total of six integrated ski resorts in Sweden and Norway. The new artificial ski slope in Hammarbybacken is part of the Skistar Sports & Adventure tourism concept, with which Skistar wants to promote summer tourism.

For the Italian manufacturer Neveplast, the project in Sweden is the first where the product NP30 Freeski Sustainable is used. In April 2022, NP30 Freeski Sustainable received ISCC Plus (International Sustainability & Carbon Certification) environmental certification.
