Copenhagen Ski Slope or locally known as Amager Bakke (Amager Hill) is a waste-to-energy plant with a ski slope on top of it. Naturally the ski slope is what makes this place an attraction of the city. This is an 85m tall building so there are great views of the city from up there. Skiing all year round, every month of the year, will soon be possible in Copenhagen. Isn’t that great? I would say this indeed is a BIG thing for the city, both for locals and tourists. You might not think that 85m is all that tall, but once you go to see it for yourself you will be surprised.

The project is developed by Amager Resource Center. It is designed by Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG).
SLA from Copenhagen is making green designs, not only making cities more beautiful, but also a more pleasant place to live, amongst others thanks to the positive effect of their buildings on the environment.
Amager Bakke is a project that SLA is doing together with BIG; a greenroof that becomes a skislope on top of a waste-to-energy building.

A special feature of this facility is that the chimney is designed to emit its exhaust in the form of smoke rings. Construction started in June 2013 and the project is scheduled to be completed in 2017.
