The upcoming Formula One Bahrain Grand Prix is set to feature a novel attraction – an indoor snow park.
French company EverSnow is currently constructing a 400m² snow garden, with a cross-country skiing trail, a freestyle ramp complete with crash pad, an ice-climbing wall and a 100m² skating rink.
An antique ski museum, showing models from 1900 to the present day, will also be on site.
EverSnow uses a snowing-up process that produces frozen water flakes which are crushed and pulverised. The snow is produced using energy and pure water free of any additives and has no environmental impact. The park will open on Friday (April 17).
