Swansea's well-known former dry ski slope, which has been left untouched for more than a decade and a half, has gone up for sale for a six-figure sum. The land off Nantong Way, which sits behind Morfa Shopping Park, totals 3.4 acres and could be yours for £295,000.

The once-popular city attraction opened in 1989 and had a slope of about 125m in length but it has been closed since at least 2006 and has become an eyesore after being left untouched for more than a decade. The old ski slope has a long history of nearly moments when it comes to regeneration.

In 2006 we reported how there had been a plan to replace the ski slope with what would have been Wales’s first indoor ski centre complete with a restaurant at the top of the slope offering panoramic views up the Swansea Valley. It would have been a multi-million-pound project incorporating a 100-bed budget hotel. A London-based developer also expressed an interest in creating a wooden bicycle track there at the time.

In 2019 plans had been put forward to transform the derelict land with a drive-through restaurant and shops but issues surrounding drainage at the site stalled its outcome. In 2021 we reported how there had been plans to build seven industrial units on the site, which Swansea Council's planning department approved.

Glanmor Chartered Surveyors, listing the opportunity on its website, writes: "Totalling 3.48 acres this former ski slope site has been granted full planning consent for a total of seven 1,000 square foot units. Situated in a highly prominent position close to the Swansea.com stadium and to the rear of Morfa Retail Park the site benefits being amongst national retailers such as Morrisons, Currys, TK Maxx, Sports Direct, and more. A new ground lease has been agreed for a term of 125 years at a ground rent of £4,500." You can express your interest in the former ski slope by clicking here.
