ParryWithAnACall, research, or even visit some snow domes in England to get an idea of what it takes financially to make one of these run. My impression was they are a big money pit. Many of them had space rented out to shopping outlets and restaurants that seamed to be the money makers. The passes also aren't really that affordable considering the massive overhead they need to pay for.
It would be sick but I dont see investors tossing money into a operation that has such a huge finical downside.
Also take a look at what happened to Xanadu.
Maybe if it really ghetto, and attached to a big ice rink. That might work.
Great points! We've built out full financial models for this, so its not some fly by night idea. And to be clear NO real snow, as we'll be working with M-snow to get our surface dialed. The overhead with that said, isn't nearly as tough to stomach.
This project has been 4 years in the making, and through all the research we've done, and the work we've put in, we've decided to take the next steps to try and make it a reality.
All that said, keep the feedback coming, and please please please, give us a follow and a share on FB.
