NEWEST ATTEMPT TO BUILD AMERICA’S FIRST INDOOR SKI RESORT ANNOUNCED

America’s first indoor ski resort dates back to 2004 as New Jersey’s Xanadu Meadowlands, but construction stalled several times before a company called Triple Five took ownership of the project in 2013 and revamped the concept with another company called SNOW Operating which plan to open North America’s first indoor snow center, Big SNOW America, at American Dream adjacent to the megaplex at the Meadowlands Sports Complex by 2017.  The 12-story snow center hopes to  offer year-round skiing, snowboarding, and snow tubing, surrounded by a collection of snow-focused retail outlets.  Big SNOW America will share American Dream which is supposed to have more than 450 other enterprises, including North America’s largest fully-enclosed indoor DreamWorks Water Park, an amusement park, a 285-foot tall observation wheel, luxury movie theatres by Cinemex, a 70,000 square-foot Sea Life Aquarium & Lego Discovery Center, and an NHL-size ice rink. The Dream also features a 460,000 square-foot luxury and fashion area, and 15 full-service restaurants.
