Get ready to hit the slopes in summertime -- or any time.
North America's first indoor ski and snowboard park with real snow will be opening at the American Dream this spring.
The East Rutherford facility will feature an 180,000-square-foot, 800-foot ski slope (16 stories high) and an ice-climbing wall. The facility will also boast a ski school area, chairlift, terrain park, chalet, restaurants and more.
Snow will be made using the same equipment that local resorts use -- the only difference is that the melted stuff will be recycled, powder.com says. The climate inside will be easily controllable to make for fluffy, fresh snow all day.
American Dream's world-class developers Triple Five -- which has already confirmed several stores -- and Montville-based company SNOW Operating are looking at an opening date of March 2019, the mall's website says.
"Big SNOW America will redefine what is possible in terms of the skiing and snowboarding guest experience," said Joe Hession, CEO of SNOW Operating.
"It is a dream come true to have the SNOW Operating team manage Big SNOW America. I have no doubt that American Dream will instantly become an iconic destination for the NY Metropolitan area and beyond."
