Snow for Florida

30. November 2018
A company which runs a number of summer outdoor attractions in the USA has announced plans to open an outdoor real-snow ski area in Florida.

The plans by Point Summit Incorporated are for a 58 acre site at Dade City in the Tampa Bay area, a location behind their existing Treehoppers Aerial Adventure Park.

So far details of the precise proposal are limited but it is known the facility would be open during normal northern hemisphere ski season months when it is a little cooler in Florida and presumably the area will use an all-weather snowmaking system with snow made inside a refrigerated unit before being spread on the slopes, but that is yet to be confirmed.

The plans appear to have been widely welcomed by local officials who say it fits in with the multi-sports destination image they are trying to promote for the region.
