This was supposed to be the first year round ski slope in a combo mega-mall & sports complex in the Newark Meadowlands, NJ, across from the Continental Arena and Giants Stadium.

I was announced today by the Securities and Exchange Commission that the Mills Corp. has had problems with the financials and that initial inquiries have now escalated into investigative status.

They have been going back and forth on this for years and it will probably be several more before they finally start building. It would be neat but will bring even more traffic to an already congested area.

If Mills fails there are several other players ready to complete the project. Construction of the Mall is underway, the superstructure is going up as we speak.

Anyone for Harb Carvers on the Osoyoos switch-backs? Seems like it would be more fun than indoor skiing.

On second thought, just get a sport bike.
On third thought a mountain bike would do.
No. The Carvers on the steep road = closest to ripping up the groomed.

Ghost, you are spot on. Get a sportbike and rip till it's snowin' again!

By a sport bike you mean a motorcycle? A friend let me drive his Honda 600 f (something like that) last summer before a softball game. I took it out on the hiway and was amazed how powerful 600cc is nowadays. It had serious pull from 135mph. Needless to say I was walking around with a chubby and my heart thumping for hours

If the snow dome doesn't happen - - - maybe someone can find a way to bring back grass skiing in New Jersey!

Newark Alps ..

I remember when those massive landfills in the Newark Meadowlands were touted as some day being used for a ski area. And .... everyone went "oooo and aaahhh" ....

They never mentioned details like the rotting bio-mass below generating heat and how would you put lift towers on piles of garbage.

Getting two fine minds together like Gubbbner Jon and Sharpe Jimmie ... ya' oughta drop them a line.
