sorry, nowhere in the us open year round thats outside. I dont know of many snowdomes in the US, but if you want snow year round consider going to south America, chile in particular has quite a few year round ski resorts on glaciers.

I thought the timberline ski area at Mt. Hood was open year round, only being closed for 2 weeks due to maintenance?

Timberline on Mt. Hood is probably the closest your going to get as far as I know. They hold a lot of snowboarding camps in the summer but toward the end the amount of snow to ride is limited.

what happened with the dome in NJ is that it all got held up due to issues with the stadium for the Jets and Giants. That Xanadu thing is tied to the new stadium and there were some legal issues floating around for a while that caused the delay. As far as I know it's still supposed to open this spring but who knows. I was near there about a month ago for Jet game and it doesn't look to promising to open at that point.

Yeah I think it has something to do with the meadowlands swamp.Its an inviromental area some people just rather see ugly grassland.Also I think it has to do with the amount of traffic that will cause.I sure hope it does get finished I can go riding in the summer,jeans and t-shirt that will be cool.
