Snowvillage To Close (01-Jun-11) has reported that one of the eight indoor snow centres in the Netherlands will close after August.

The Snowvillage Biddinghuizen, part of the Rivièra Recreation Centre, lies directly on the beautiful Veluwemeer and is surrounded by woods. Opened in 1999 the facility was one of the shortest in the world at only 40m long with an eight metre vertical and had been used largely for winter fun sports like tubing and tobogganing. It is part of a leisure park and resort complex with a vast array of alternative leisure activities on offer.

The owners say the facility will be used now for activities like laser gaming.

The closure of Snowvillage Biddinghuizen will leave The Netherlands with seven indoor slopes, still second in the world after Japan.
