Wintastar Shanghai, an integrated sports-entertainment-tourism development, would become the world’s largest indoor ski and snow park resort after its full construction in Lingang, Pudong New Area, Shanghai, by 2022. Inspired by the majestic iceberg, and with close proximity to Shanghai Haichang Polar Ocean Park and Shanghai Disney Resort, the place is well-poised to be amongst Shanghai’s tourism icons.
Seating on a massive site area of approximately 107,000 square meters (sqm) and spanning a total gross floor area of approximately 227,000 sqm, it features an Alpine-themed 90,000 sqm indoor ski resort which highlights three different levels of snow, including an Olympic-standard snow facility for training. The apres-ski activities are designed to please both the skiers and non-skiers, ensuring the best skiing experience for skiers of all levels.
Alongside the ski park is a 28,000 sqm Nordic-themed water park that is set over two levels with indoor and outdoor waterslides, a beach club, and an infinity pool. Visitors can see the actions on the centre’s ski slope in the comfort of their swimsuits. Aside from this, there are also food and beverage establishments, and theatres and event spaces that will provide year-round exhibitions and shows. Moreover, a range of shops can be found at the Retail Street, embraced by a spectacular winter ceiling view.
To maximize one’s stay in Wintastar, KOP Limited’s luxury hospitality brand, the international award-winning Montigo Resorts will mark its entry into China through Wintastar Shanghai. There will be 920 room keys in four themed hotels: Montigo Luxe, Montigo Hotels, Montigo Residences and Montigo Ice—all designed to provide different accommodation experiences. Montigo Luxe, a 5-star hotel, includes rooms that offer ski-in ski-out facilities that provide skiers with added slope access and convenience while Montigo Ice, with its 16 rooms, is set to be Shanghai’s first ice hotel that will feature ice carvings all year-round. These accommodations are equipped with Alpine-themed décor and experiential elements along with smart technologies that are quintessential to the full and ideal Wintastar Shanghai stay. This emphasizes Wintastar’s integrated concept that offers its guests both unique encounters and goods to make their stay as memorable as possible.
Adding to the authentic and complete winter experience, Wintastar welcomes its guests with grand entrances. Upon entry to the snow park, there is a giant circular display sprinkled around with a curtain of magical lights. Giving a taste of an adventure, the street entrance on the other hand greets everyone with an immersive cable car entryway.
Wintastar is consistent with Mercurio Design Lab’s design philosophy. It displays the union between the exterior form and internal design. The magnificence of the development as seen from the outside is also manifested in the interiors, providing a holistic experience to the senses. Well equipped with amenities and services for sports, hospitality, entertainment, and leisure, Wintastar promises its visitors a variety of features, whether it’s in terms of sports or hospitality.
Wintastar, intended to look like a group of icebergs with a ski slope and a volcano lagoon on the top, is easy to foresee as a must-see tourist location for both local and overseas visitors who are either thrill- or leisure-seekers alike in the comfort of an indoor winter landscape.
