Xanadu Snow Park – Update

I recently had a conversation with Richard Edwards of Lak PR in regards to my recent posting about the Meadowlands Xanadu project.  Richard was kind enough to provide me with the following updates regarding the Xanadu project:

The ski hill entertainment feature will officially be called the Xanadu Snow Park.  The ski slope itself will be divided lengthwise into four separate runs of varying difficulty.  Temperature will be kept at 28 degrees 24/7 and snow melt will be recycled to produce new snow each day.

As with a ski resort, there will be a ski shop and an après ski lounge.  The idea is that visitors can rent equipment and try it out on-site before they buy. 

Richard also informed that although no official pricing information has been released “Visitors will be charged based on the actual time they spend on the slope  — the clock stops if they want to take a break and leave for awhile.  Rates will be set by the market, but will be “family friendly.””

Although construction is continuing to move forward on-schedule, the official opening for the Snow Park has been postponed until summer of 2009.

I will continue to keep you posted as more information becomes available.

  1. Do you know who will operate the snow dome? An operator in the ski industry or will the mall operate it?
