“It’s like a very slippery, icy pist, but it’s super fun and once you have tried two or three runs, it feels more and more natural. I think i´m going to take at least 10 or 20 more and hopefully i will feel a little at home again, but it’s fantastic to be in the middle of Copenhagen and being able to ski.”

“We are lacking the last one / third of the hill, and when that is done we can test that and then we are ready to open for the public, and we can open the ski slope. We also have a restaurant, a climbing wall, the world’s highest climbing wall, a running path alongside the hill and a hiking path. We have after ski/ski school. So we are like a mountain resort just narrowed down in a small area and that is what we want to give people, the feeling of being on vacation just for four hours”.
