Alpine-X to build new indoor ski facility in Lorton

Alpine-X submitted a public-private partnership proposal to build a 450,000-sq.-ft. snow sports facility on Fairfax County’s I-95 landfill in Lorton.

It would be the longest indoor ski slope in North America with an expected 1,700-foot ski slope and one of the longest in the world, reports Fairfax County Times.

The facility’s summit would reach an altitude of about 280 feet. Called Fairfax Peak, the proposed snow sports complex may include: multiple ski slopes at approximately a 20-degree angle; a specially designed area for skiing and snowboarding; a bunny slope for beginners, snow tubing run and area for skiers and snowboarders to perform tricks; restaurants, ski shop and sky bar; a 100-plus room luxury hotel; a gravity-powered, mountain coaster; a gondala to ferry riders; and Fairfax Peak sky terrace.
