Why not? They snow ski in Dubai.

Need to start building some up north. With global warming, snow is already rare in the mid-Atlantic.

Someday "selling snow to Eskimos" will mean a good investment.

Well, that's one way to argue against climate change. "See? There's snow in Florida!"

"Colder" months?  We are still wearing tank tops and shorts in December most of the time.

Always went to Florida to "escape" the snow during the winter, it's a brave new world now, that doesn't mean that Florida doesn't suck.

That ski run isn't as crazy as it sounds.

A well insulated facility is a one-time expense.  Correctly installed insulation will last indefinitely without maintenance.

If they got it right, then the recurring expenses in terms of equipment and energy to maintain the demand temperature might not be that bad.

Florida already has an ice hockey team.  Snow park can't be that much of a leap.

Linked linked article says it will only be running a few weeks of the year when is cold enough.

Yeah, except instead of snow they just made it look like snow with white concrete. Everywhere. With very little shade.

This isn't a hard prediction, but I'm guessing if winters with snow fall in the coming decades become about a month in length (or even less) in the northern states - snow parks where they can control temp and churn out lots of artificial snow is gonna become pretty common throughout the country.

People were ice skating in Bryant Park Manhattan on Thursday. It was 75F.

Bright side: if the snow thing doesn't pan out, then *presto* water park!

Pasco County's lowest average temperature for a month is January's 49ºF (9ºC). This seems like a great f*** you to the environment that fits Florida perfectly.

(Correction 49º is the lowest average low in January...the average temp would presumably be around 60º).
