Snowboarding in New Jersey in July

By June 8, 2009

It's not possible just yet, but if all goes according to plan, skiers and snowboarders will be making turns, on snow, in New Jersey in July 2010. The Meadowlands Xanadu Project is a shopping and entertainment complex currently under construction in East Rutherford, New Jersey - the same Meadowlands where the New York Football Giants and the Jets play their home games - and will feature the first indoor skiing and snowboarding slope in the U.S.

Although the project has been fraught with controversy and constant delays, opening day is currently scheduled for Summer of 2010. When finished, the 4.5 million square foot complex will be the largest retail and entertainment complex in the U.S., and the third largest in the world. The 250,000 square foot ski and snowboard slope will be open year-round, hence the title - snowboarding in New Jersey in July! While I doubt the experience will rival anything the outdoors has to offer, there's something cool about being able to make some turns before catching a live NFL football game!
