Aedas is breaking new ground in the A+D industry with its latest project, the Trojena Ski Village in NEOM. This futuristic resort, set to be the world’s first “vertical ski village,” is poised to redefine the concept of a snow destination in the GCC, offering year-round adventure sports for visitors. Scheduled for completion in 2026, Trojena is set to make history as the Gulf Region’s inaugural outdoor ski resort. Located in NEOM, Saudi Arabia’s ground-breaking giga project, the new resort will host the 10th Asian Winter Games in 2029, marking a significant milestone for the region.

Designed to accommodate both seasonal visitors and permanent residents, Trojena Ski Village will feature a plethora of amenities, including year-round skiing opportunities, retail outlets, restaurants, luxury accommodations, and more. By 2030, the resort aims to welcome 700,000 annual visitors and house up to 7,000 residents, making it a bustling hub of activity.Led by a consortium of international architecture firms, including Aedas, the design of Trojena Ski Village represents a bold departure from traditional ski resort typologies. Aedas’ innovative approach challenges conventions, envisioning a superstructure that integrates multiple levels of mobility and connection vertically, rather than horizontally. “‘For millennia, ski villages have had the same formula with multiple plots and buildings connected by roads. We challenged this convention by asking what if the village could be a building. This led us to dream up a superstructure that has the scale of a village but with all the connections and mobility happening vertically across several levels”, said Ignacio Gomez, Aedas’ Global Design Principal. The resort’s multi-level activation promises visitors a seamless transition between experiences, facilitated by a range of vertical mobility devices. From skiing and mountain biking to zip-lining and Alpine coasters, Trojena offers a diverse array of outdoor activities for guests to enjoy year-round.

Designed to blend harmoniously with its natural surroundings, Trojena Ski Village is sculpted to complement the natural topography of the NEOM mountain range. With a monumental scale that echoes the landscape, the resort is envisioned as an extension of the mountain itself, seamlessly integrating with the terrain over time.

In addition to its architectural ingenuity, Trojena Ski Village prioritizes sustainability at every stage of development. From energy-efficient building materials to innovative snowmaking technologies, the resort is designed to minimize its environmental footprint while maximizing guest comfort and enjoyment.
