It’s an indoor version of “The Cloudmont” and that’s only an hour up the road from me. As much time as I spend in the NYC area, I’m sure I’ll give it a try eventually. Maybe not in the winter, there are better outdoor options, but during the summer it would be a different month to claim slope time.

For pics of the lift. It's pretty weird not to have any towers in the ground. Turns out the chairlift was installed back in 2008 during early development, long before the current developer got involved.

Here's a good video introduction. Can get a feel for the speed that's possible for the terrain park. There is a limit of 500 people during every time period. So lift lines shouldn't be an issue.

A little surprised, but there is already a video review. The man lives pretty close to American Dream, knows how to ski, and seemed to have a better time than he expected.
