    Good point about groomers though.
    Ski accidents are part of the inherent risk of the activity. Third degree burns are not an inherent risk of drinking coffee. When I spill coffee, I expect it to hurt a little but not do damage.

    Yeah, as a novelty I'd like to check it out once just to see what it's like, but I cant imagine it holding your interest.

    The non-payers outnumber the payers. And it's getting worse as payers flee the state (I'll be one of them in a few years).

    Wonder if McDonald's will start getting sued by people who develop cancer from drinking hot coffee.

    I had occasion to hit Ski Dubai once. It was a lot of fun for the few hours I was there. Little rail park set up on left wall, small jumps below the "midstation" of the quad and a slalom course setup on the skiers right line. Without that slalom course, would have been a bit boring. But lapping the course was a lot of fun. Since I spend many a night at Teterboro each year, I could see a few of those in the off season spent at the dome. Just hope their rental gear is better than Dubai's. My binding slid before the first run and I had to reset it. Saw a early teen boy trying to figure his ski out, wound up he had the same problem. Fixed his too.

    Anyone interested in a Saco River canoe day followed by a BBQ and campfire? That's my typical summer outing.

    Right, would be cool once to go in July or August just to say I skied in the summer. Beyond that...doubt it would be interesting enough for me to go back and spend more money there.

    Absolutely will be charging more than $15 to ski at this place for a couple of hours.

    Once again, we need to take a step back as we're debating the merits of this and will it or won't it work, and remember that we AZ'er's 99% of the time AREN'T their target market and make up the vast minority of the skiing population.

    After school programs, learn to ski programs, adult "beer league" racing, likely in today's day and age a decent rail/jump line, and you've got LOT'S of potential customers with a likely decent retention amount before you even broach the "novelty" crowds.

    If you've ever been to a hike to rail jam event at a ski area in their off season, they get a decent turnout with minimal promotion and a crowd that very often will keep hiking too and hitting the same half dozen features or so for hours on end - We AZ'ers while incredibly dedicated to this sport, just plain and simply aren't the target main audience for this

    I disagree. Kids have so much going on in the summer already. It'll be a hard sell.
