The long-awaited first indoor ski resort in North America has opened its trails for the public in New Jersey. It’s just a half an hour drive from Manhattan. Now you don’t need to drive for 6+ hours anymore to fulfill your passion for skiing and snowboarding!
Here is the video of the opening day.
There are several slopes for different skiing levels ranging from beginners to advanced (Northern Lights) as well as a snow park
But if you don’t need equipment and assistance, the cost is ~ $30 for two-hour slope access. Single-day package (including equipment) will cost about 70$ and a 3-day package is about $150. You can find the prices here.
One of the first skiers who rode new chair lift today were Olympic gold medalists Lindsey Vonn, Red Gerard, and Burton Snowboards team rider Ben Ferguson.
