The Snow Leopard launches Ghana’s ski slope project

Kwame Nkrumah-Acheampong

Kwame Nkrumah Acheampong, also known as ‘The Snow Leopard’ and the first Ghanaian to participate in a Winter Olympics is working on building Ghana’s ski slope. Building of the ski slope is going along with developing Ghana’s ski team, he has said in Accra.

According to him, the building of the ski slope which will be the first in sub-Saharan Africa will be launched November 27, 2010.

During the launch of the ski slope, the Ghana Ski Team will also launch an online scheme to recycle unwanted ski and snowboard equipment, through donating such equipment to the development of grassroots skiing in Ghana. The project will encourage winter sports enthusiasts worldwide to send their unwanted equipment to designated collection points for onward delivery to Ghana.
