    New Jersey Meadowlands ski dome to open summer of 2017?

    Looks like this might finally be happening. The failed Xanadu mall has been renamed "American Dream". Snow Operating has been picked to run the indoor ski slope with the hopes of opening in 2017. The indoor slope is already built and has been sitting vacant and never used for about 8 years. If it ever opens it will be a 180,000 square foot 12 story indoor ski facility that will be open 365 days a year.

    Here's a video of what it looks like from the inside from 2009:

    I'd actually be pretty excited if this thing ever gets open. It would be the perfect place to teach kids how to ski. Its near NYC so no big travel is necessary, the weather is always perfect and the slope just right and just small enough for learning. If it opens next summer my kids would be 5 and 3 by then. We could get some really good practice in during the summer and fall and get their skills to be good enough to do some real skiing in the winter at places bigger than Campgaw and Mount Peter!

    If they seed some bumps in there, I will never have to suffer the indignity of skiing outdoors again.

    I've said it before.

    If it ever opens I would get a pass and ski at least 1x per week in the "off-season".

    The cost of tolls to get there from Bklyn going over the Verrizzano & Goethals bridges would be more than the cost to ski. Sad but true.

    $16 for VZ & $15 for GB cash. Do you think they'll be charging more for a couple of hour session in the dome?

    Seriously? You guys actually pay that? Ouch. I am surprised the voters allow such a thing.

    How else could NYC have such a low 10% state & city income tax rate and 8.875% sales tax if not for $15 bridge toll?

    $126 for trucks with six axles. Nice!
