American Dream

It only took us just one visit to become big fans of Big SNOW American Dream. The continent’s first indoor snow park is awesome for beginner snowboarders and skiers alike, and the snow is just as real as what you’d find outside. If you or your kid is a Leap Day baby and you haven’t yet visited, suit up for your birthday this Saturday: You can hit the slopes for free.

Anyone born on February 29 will receive a free slope access ticket on that day. That gives you access to the snowy trails for two hours. All you have to do is bring a valid ID to Guest Services to collect your free pass.

Once you’re there, get suited up ASAP: there’s a lot to do! The 180,000-square-foot attraction has four acres for the kids to explore. If the kids are just getting their snow legs, test their balance inside at Burton’s Riglet Snowboarding on mini boards and ramps, or go wild in the powder at the Big SNOW Play Area. Once they’re ready for a challenge, hit the bunny hill called the Lil’ Dipper. More experienced skiers can hop a ride on the gondola to the top of the 16-story slope. Snowboard down half pipes and practice tricks in the freestyle terrain area, or brave the 160-foot vertical drop on skis.

American Dream

If your kid is always bummed about not being able to celebrate his or her birthday on the 29th every year, Big SNOW American Dream hopes this cheers ’em up. “People born on Leap Day almost never get to celebrate their birthday on the actual day they were born,” said Hugh Reynolds, vice president of marketing and sales at SNOW Operating (the company behind the snow-making magic at the park), in a press release. “At Big SNOW, we wanted to offer guests who may not often have the chance to celebrate an opportunity to have something special, celebrating their birthdays inside with us in the snow.”

This offer is only valid for one ticket on February 29 only, and can’t be combined with another offer. For the rest of your crew, a slope access ticket will cost you between $29.99-34.99. Buy online to get the lowest price.
