According to Ski Press World, a huge sport complex is to be built in NJ and completed within the next 2 years. It will supposedly contain the nation's largest movie complex, indoor wave pool, extreme sports park and a three-story video wall. A minor-league baseball stadium, an aquarium, role-playing adventures, and other kiddy learning stuff.
AND .. .of most importance to DCSki fans .. a SNOW DOME. A link on the site directs to this Spanish site as to what/which/ dome they intend to build ... http://www.parquedenievemadrid.es/
Location looks to be near Lyndhurst, NW across the river from Secaucus, or approx 3.5 hrs from DC.
I could sure use a ski fix a couple of times during the summer to carry me over until the REAL skiing starts!
