What temperature is it inside the ski slopes?

Our slopes at Big SNOW are kept to a cool 28 degrees Fahrenheit year-round. This ensures the optimal mix of snow quality and guest comfort.

How do you make snow indoors?

The snow we make inside Big SNOW is technically no different than the snow that falls outside in nature. To help in the absence of mother nature, we use special snow making machines that spray a fine mist of cooled water into the air above our slopes. As the water droplets fall through the cold air in the dome, they freeze and turn to snow, just the same as they would falling through the sky outside.

Can I sled or play in the snow?

We offer BIG’s SNOW Play & Sledding product which is a great area for the kiddos to play. For more information, visit www.bigsnowamericandream.com/snowplay/

Can I just come and ride the lift?

Sorry. The use of our lifts is reserved for ticketed guests only.

Can I accompany my child into the park?

All guests entering the Snow Park and Rental Area must have a valid ticket. Our available admission products consist of SNOW Play, SNOW Day Rental Package, SNO-GO Package, and a 2-Hour Ticket.

What should I wear?

We can provide you with everything you need for your visit to Big SNOW. Our Snow Day package includes: snow pants, snow jacket and helmet. We also have gloves, socks, hats, and anything else you could need available for purchase at our retail store. If you’re planning on bringing your clothing… Generally, we recommend that you avoid cotton clothing as it absorbs and retains moisture and can make you feel cold. A water-resistant jacket and pants, a synthetic material base-layer or thermals, one good pair of wool or synthetic socks, gloves and hat or ski/snowboard helmet should set you up for success on the slopes. Remember: if you’re under the age of 18 the state of New Jersey requires that you wear a helmet when skiing, snowboarding and riding the lifts. Helmets are included in our rental packages.

What should I bring with me?

We recommend that you bring a change of clothes with you for your trip home. As well as a phone or camera to document your day. Personal items may be stored in our lockers within the outfitting area.
