Yes, you did read that right. Dragon DH are trying to get enough support and investment to get a chairlift installed for a permanent DH / Freeride venue in South Wales.
With the current tightening of regulations on uplift transport the problem of how to get your big bike to the top of the hill is a real issue at the moment. However this means the timing is perfect for Dragon Downhills radical "a chairlift in five years or your money back" investment scheme.
The scheme has only just kicked off, but basically by getting serious investors to pledge money it confirms the real support of riders to the idea of a permanent Whistler / Morzine style park in South Wales. It'll also be much easier for the scheme to get 'matched' grant aid if they`ve already got some money of their own to invest.
