Orlando's International Drive already has just about any kind of diversion you can come up with. There are thrill rides, water parks and plenty of restaurants and shopping.
But there is a plan submitted to the City of Orlando that would actually bring snow skiing and snowboarding to I-Drive along with several other outdoor sports.
In a report to the Orlando Municipal Planned Board, developers note that the sports complex is said to provide diverse skill building and educational opportunities.
In addition to a skiing/snowboarding slope, the proposed development includes rock climbing, natural trails, a man-made surfing feature, a white-water rafting course, a kayaking and canoeing course, crayoning, zip lin-ing, a high rope course apparatus, and a rappelling tower.
On the roughly 60-acre property, 300,000 square feet would be dedicated to the sports complex with approximately 178,000 square feet put aside for hotel development.
