Big SNOW Opens at American Dream, the First Real Snow Indoor Ski Resort in North America

Fresh off the heels of American Dream’s phase one opening earlier this fall, the ambitious mega-mall recently opened phase three with their latest attraction, Big SNOW – the first and only indoor, real-snow, year-round ski and snow resort in North America.

Big SNOW welcomed its first guest on December 5th, offering indoor skiing, snowboarding, sledding, and other snow activities inside a fully enclosed 180,000 square feet structure featuring a 200-foot-wide 16-story high ski slope.

“Big SNOW is a game-changer for skiing and snowboarding in the United States,” Hugh Reynolds, vice president of marketing and sales for Snow Operating, said in a statement. “The unprecedented access to year-round snow combined with the center’s unrivaled location … will allow us to provide opportunities never before seen, and to move the needle on growing the sports in a big way.”

The interior temperature is held at a constant 28 degrees creating the ideal environment to make and maintain real snow indoors. The total skiable area is equal to roughly four acres. The slope features four ski lifts and has a capacity of 500. On the technical side, the facility has the capacity to produce real snow at a rate of 4.4 tons per hour.

Big SNOW is run by Montville-based SNOW Operating which operates a number of outdoor ski resorts across the US, Australia, and China.
