I was checking to see which resort is still open for the remaining of the season and I came across the Chicopee website. They are considering investing into having all year round skiing and snowboarding.
After watching the video presentation, I would be down for a season pass if they do have it. Its only about an hour and a half west of Toronto.
Just wondering if you guys tried boarding on snowflex before.
Let's make it happen!
Skiing, Snowboarding, Biking, Ontario : Chicopee Ski & Summer Resort
fill out the survey and hopefully we can see it next year!
just imagine guys.... year round snowboarding!!! haha
Just to qualify that a little bit more... If you read all of the fine print, the survey isn't actually being done by Chicopee. The survey is being done by some Wilfred Laurier University students as part of an applied business course, and merely supported by the resort (and why not, free market research!!). There's no commitment or actual interest behind it from Chicopee's side, so I won't get my hopes up in seeing it any time soon.
That being said, I think it would make that dive of a "hill" a considerably more attractive destination, particularly in the warmer months. Realistically all they will really be able to put onto a Chicopee-sized slope would be maybe a green groomer-style slope (easy blue at best), and a terrain park. Still, that should drive a pretty decent amount of business what with our relative proximity to Toronto, SWO, and upstate NY.
why hasnt snowflex made a park in california?!
Liberty Mountain is the first in North America. They've since opened an indoor Snowflex at Copper Mountain for year round pipe, park, and big air (55' kicker into a foam pit?!?! HELLYEAH!). California already has awesome big mountains, and I'm sure Californians concern themselves with other summer activities. You just need to find someone with really deep pockets willing to open one up...
