Indoor Snow NEWS from Partick Thorne
Xanadu New Jersey
There may still be no confirmed opening date for the ‘virtually complete’ complex that is home to the first indoor snow slope in North America, but the latest part of the $2.2 billion jigsaw that will make it all work has been finished.
A 2.3-mile long rail spur now connects the complex in the Meadowlands area to the existing Pascack Valley line in Secaucus, New Jersey and a new station has been completed ready to ease the road congestion that might otherwise be caused at peak periods by the estimated six million visitors a year the complex is expected to attract, when open.
Journey time from Secaucus will be about ten minutes and train tickets will cost less than parking for major sports events. Secaucus is a major hub that can be reached quickly and easily accessible from New Jersey, New York City and even Long Island amongst other major population centres.
Train service will begin this summer and serve pre-existing sports facilities on the site prior to the opening of Xanadu, the latest projected date for which is, “some time in 2010.” The rail link has cost $182 million to complete.
Skiing and snowboarding is possible every month of the year in Tignes, thanks to the Grande Motte glacier which has just opened for the summer season.
At a height of over 3000 metres, there's 20km of pistes and 12 lifts, plus the fabulous snowpark. Training camps are running throughout the summer, giving you the chance to learn from the pros, whether that be racing technique, park prowess or simply learning to ski or board.
When you're finished on the glacier, there are plenty of other activities to keep you occupied - mountain biking on over 90km of trails, endless water sports on the lake, beach soccer and beach volleyball, golf, tennis...And they're all FREE with the Sportignes card.
