First Indoor Snow Mountain in North America Opens at New Jersey's American Dream Mall

The BIG Express Quad, a Doppelmayr CTEC 4-CLF initially installed in 2008, opened to the public for the first time, last Thursday December 5th at Big Snow American Dream in East Rutherford, NJ. Big Snow is North America’s first indoor, real-snow ski and snowboard center providing guests with year-round winter indoors. It is owned by the Triple Five Group who partnered with Snow Operating (also run by Mountain Creek Resort) to bring the ski experience to life. The 160-foot slope features a graduated incline shaped with 5,500-tons of real snow, an aerial fixed-grip quad with tower equipment suspended from the facility roof structure, and a Doppelmayr platter surface lift offering a total capacity of 2750 passengers/hour.

Before the launch of the 1st chair, Snow Operating President and CEO Joe Hession presented the Ghermezian family a cow bell like those seen at many of our Doppelmayr lift openings as an Austrian tradition. Don Ghermezian, said in a statement “We know that the community has been eagerly awaiting the launch of this incredible global destination. We have a one-of-a-kind property that will reshape the way people think about entertainment, theme parks and shopping.”

A perfect destination to practice your skiing or snowboarding skills during the upcoming holidays and throughout the year! A cool place to spend those hot summer days!
