Loveland is usually open by mid-october out here in CO, but you most likely won't have much stuff to ride at that point in the year. you might have better luck in the northwest, but not being at all familiar with the area, perhaps someone from that region can field that one.

Hey I saw the construction, when I was driving to Vermont. I told my buddy that is an indoor ski area, he of course said no and called me an idiot. It is right next to I95 driving north on left side, like a big winter complex right? I am not sure if people are going to go there being so small and all.

I know Dubai has one, but there is no skiing for hundred of miles.

Well if they have a park then maybe it will work. It just seem awfully expensive. Dubai finances their resort with the oil money they are ripping away from us, but jersey. Maybe they want to target NY people a short drive. I wonder if in winter they can ventilate the resort so they do need to have the AC blowing. The idea is pretty cool, do you now when they are going to be open? I might be there this summer for a few days. I wonder how much the lift ticket is going be. Dubai is like $150 US dollars for 2 hours lol.

I should point out that the UK has at least 4 of these indoor snow slopes. We do have one in Glasgow that is under 100 miles from our nearest mountain ski/snowboard are (Glencoe). People go to these indoor slopes all the time, but they are expensive. Right now I'd pay about £30 (maybe $55) for 2 hours on the slope. They have freestyle nights with a full-on park and even special events fairly regularly so they do a reasonable job, but of course once you've snowboarded at a decent resort the indoor slope seems short. Still fun though.
