First delivery of mats

They’re here!

The 5th June 2019 saw us take delivery of 523 diamond mats from SkiTech Systems.

We decided the best way to get the matting to the top was via a back route around the centre, the telehandler then lifted the mats over our toboggan track that surrounds the slope and staff quickly moved them whilst the truck went back for another load. Hard work but we soon got into a flow and the whole job only took just over 5 hours from the lorry arriving. Great work from the whole team!

We are awaiting a delivery of Anchors, due early this week to start the next process. Anchors will be buried into the slope ground, allowing for the mats to be tied into place! We still have some clearing to do, our tube section of the slope will be the last to be completed.

Huge shout out to Mainline who hired us the telehandler, they are based in Swadlincote and also David the Telehandler operator was bought in from Ganymede based in Derby. Brilliant service start to finish!

Will keep you posted on further progress!
