Long-awaited indoor ski slope opens at American Dream

The only indoor ski and snowboard park in North America, American Dream’s Big SNOW, opened its doors Wednesday to hundreds of curious customers, as well as an Olympic gold medalist.

Skier and New Jersey resident Lindsey Vonn christened the slopes, making a leisurely downhill run in about 26 seconds — an ironically short span considering it’s taken more than a decade to launch the indoor ski slope.
