Alychlo is taking over 100% of the indoor ski slope at Aspen in Wilrijk.
This means that Alychlo, which already successfully operates various leisure activities in Belgium, now also takes a position in the Belgian market for indoor ski slopes (with a peak season in winter and spring which is atypical for leisure activities).
As the main shareholder of SnowWorld, Alychlo is already active in the international indoor ski slope market. The current management team will remain operationally responsible under the leadership of Bram Hendrickx. From Alychlo, the supervision will be done by Olivier Saverys, Leisure Development Manager at Alychlo.

"With Aspen, a unique opportunity presented itself and we grabbed it with both hands. This acquisition fits perfectly within our strategy to be relevant in the leisure and entertainment market."
Yves Champagne (Aspen)
"With our ski slope "Aspen", we have established a wonderful concept in Wilrijk, a very central location. In order to further expand the existing platform and the business, we have found Alychlo as the ideal partner. Financial strength is combined with decisiveness and expertise!"
