Power station to double as laser-firing ski slope

Denmark burns 54% of domestic waste to generate power, according to Eurostat data. So, Bjarke says, it makes sense to harness the unused physical potential of its vast incendiary plants.

"In a country with the perfect climate for skiing, but which has long suffered from a lack of skiable slopes, why not kill two birds with one stone?" he said.

Capping off the multi-purpose power plant will be a terrain park that offers go-carting, sailing, and rock climbing.

But what about the all-important apres-ski aperitif?

"Of course!" Bjarke enthused. "At the very top of the slopes, underneath the chimney there will be a giant disc -- housing a bar with the best 360-degree panoramic views of Copenhagen anywhere in the world." cnn
