The Ski Dome concept is our take on rethinking indoor skiing. The proposal offers over 3 km of indoor and outdoor slopes, a freestyle park, hotel, and consists of three centrally connected arches, which resemble the basic shape of a six-armed snowflake. The arches each span 700 m across the river Gudenåen and the top arch’s highest point rises 110 m over ground, creating a distinctive landmark for the entire region.
The basic idea of the Ski Dome is to share and pass on the joy of skiing to the Danes by creating spectacular indoor facilities that bring skiers as close as possible to the experience of hurtling down a mountain side in the Alps. In order to meet this ambition, we have been inspired reversely, so to speak. Most ski domes around the world are designed from the inside with no or very few windows. However, an essential part of the skiing experience consists in being able to enjoy the surrounding scenery. The proposal’s high-rise composition combined with a filigree façade structure allows for spectacular views over Randers and the river-meadow area.
