There is going to be a ski resort built in Ft. Worth, TX, just west of Dallas. This resort is going to be a Bearfire Resort. Bearfire has several other resorts across the country, but when they're done with this one, it's going to be the largest one built yet.
Now, you're probably thinking, It doesn't snow very much in DFW, muchless does it keep a consistently cold temperature during the winter months. Well, these factors won't be of any concern. The "snow" is going to be some kind of carpet called Snowflex that allows for a smooth skiing experience.
I've been been skiing before, so I won't be able to judge the difference, but I'm very excited for the opportunity to learn! Along with the slopes, there will be a 600 room hotel and convention center!
They are excepting around 2.4 million visitors annually. At first I thought that was a large number. But then I remembered that Dallas and the surrounding suburbs have over 5 million people already, so that's not saying too much about bringing outside tourism to the area.
Overall, the project is supposed to be just shy of $700 million and I can't wait to buy some ski clothes!!
