Snow Park in San Jose?

It is not everyday that you hear about an organization proposing to turn a former landfill site into an all-year-round snow park... in San Jose. This would be the first such synthetic snow park in California and even though I am not a skier or snowboarder, it sounds awesome! Depending on how well the fundraising goes, the slope cold be anywhere between 200ft long and 100ft wide and 800ft long and 220ft wide. You have to check out the 60 second video below.

The project would cost between $1 and $18 million to build and include retail and restaurants on-site. The snow park would be constructed near 101 and Capital in the Evergreen area of San Jose.

To contribute to the project, just head over to the Bay Area Snow Park Kickstarter page over here.

  1. Awesome idea, no way it gets $1M on Kickstarter.
