Copenhill is a marvel of architecture and engineering and offers Danes a chance to ski in an otherwise mountainless country.

This Copenhagen waste to power plant not only incinerates 30 lorry loads of rubbish per day, turning it into clean energy for the city but also cleverly utilises its rooftop for the benefit of hikers and skiers. The recreational area includes a massive 450 metre ski slope complete with freestyle features and three button lifts for uplift.

Designed by architects Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) Copenhill's dry ski slope gives mountain less Denmark's residents a chance to experience skiing on it's black, blue and green pistes and freestyle park in this '....hybrid between a building and a landscape'.

Far from being your typical featureless dry ski slope Copenhill looks much more natural, in part thanks to the rooftop hiking trail/park that flanks its edges designed in collaboration with Danish landscapers SLA.

Inside the building you'll find an apres ski bar and ski rental shop. Sessions are available for around £17 for an hour of post apocalyptic industro ski fun.
