Powder-filled Colorado Might Get Synthetic Snow Ski Area

New, 9 comments

The Denver Business Journal is reporting that a year-round snow sports center could be coming to Castle Rock, Colorado, a small town south of Denver. The proposed development is headed by Pennsylvania-based Weston Solutions and would offer outdoor skiing, snowboarding, and tubing on slopes covered with a snow-synthetic material called Snowflex. Plans are in the early stages, but the city of Castle Rock is interested and if approved, the center would be located in the Philip S. Miller Park. The project would include 107,000 square feet of synthetic snow, a bunny slope, a tubing run, a downhill mountain bike course, a 15,000-25,000 square foot lodge with a restaurant and bar, and 200-250 parking spaces. So tell us snow-loving Denverites, would you make the trek to Castle Rock to try out synthetic snow?
