Big SNOW – North America’s Only Real-Snow Dome – Is Reopening September 1st
Big SNOW American Dream Is Reopening
After months of waiting (in quarantine) to feel the chill of winter, ride a chairlift and take some fast laps, Big SNOW American Dream is reopening on Tuesday, September 1st.
Big SNOW is North America’s first indoor, real-snow ski and snowboard dome just 8 miles away from New York City. The dome offers skiing, snowboarding, a terrain park and beginner area for first-timers. Unlike turf and Snowflex surfaces, Big SNOW offers skiers and riders actual snow to slide on. Many outdoor ski resorts make their snow the same way utilizing similar snowmaking technology.
New Safety Protocols
As an indoor recreational facility, Big SNOW is implementing several updated safety measures to allow its guests to responsibly enjoy the snow and gear up for endless indoor winter again.
Team members at Big SNOW – who have experienced extensive health and safety training – will undergo daily health screenings and temperature checks prior to entering the facility.
Face-to-face interactions within the center have been limited, with advance online ticket purchase required for on-snow visits. Additionally, contactless scanning for arrival and entry in and out of the snow dome has been implemented.
Face coverings and gloves are required for all guests and team members entering the snow dome. For the safety of all guests, groups on chair lifts will be limited to only those who have arrived together.
Big SNOW has also increased its focus on cleaning and sanitizing in accordance with the CDC and state health and safety guidelines.
“Skiing and snowboarding are great, naturally socially distant activities, and we are all very excited to be able to open Big SNOW for our guests again,” said Hugh Reynolds, SNOW Operating VP of marketing and sales.
“Our team has been working very hard these past few months to reinvent what the Big SNOW experience will look like in today’s COVID world. I’m confident that our guests will see and feel the results of that work when they visit us. We’re looking forward to sharing the experience with them.”
Big SNOW By The Numbers
Big SNOW American Dream, operated by New Jersey-based SNOW Operating, is the first facility of its kind within the United States and Canada, offering aspiring and existing skiers and snowboarders as well as snow-curious guests varied on-snow experiences within a 180,000 square foot, 16 story, climate-controlled ski slope. It boasts 4 acres of snow-covered slopes, a 160-foot vertical drop, a graduated degree of pitch ranging from 0%at the base to 26% at its steepest point and 1,000 feet of length for skiers of all ages and skill levels to take advantage of all serviced by 4 surface and aerial lifts.
