US indoor slope faces more delays
Monday February 4, 2013 - Email this article to a friend

The American Dream opening date slips towards 2016. If it ever happens it wil be part of one of the largest shopping and leisure complexes in the USA.

The recommencement of construction at the site of North America's first indoor snow centre looks set to be delayed by complex financial and legal debate between the various stake holders.

We have reported on the project in the past on PlanetSKI and there were hopes work would re-start this year.

The project, in New Jersey, USA, which began more than a decade ago, was once called Xanadu and is on to its third owner, Triple Creek, operator of many of the continent's largest malls including the Mall of America in Minnesota. 

The company wants to spend around $2 billion more dollars on the project which has already seen a similar amount spent, adding an indoor amusement and water park.

The indoor snow centre part of the development was completed around four years ago but, like the rest of the complex, has never opened.

It had been hoped the facility would open in February 2014 but with a probable two year construction period it now looks unlikely the facility will open before 2016 - some 15 years since originally mooted.
