City Council: Snow park a bust
“No more wasting time” were the words that came out of one council members mouth and the motion followed by the rest at last night's special meeting.
All this during the presentation by the developers of Laredo’s future snow park, but it doesn't look like we'll be seeing one any time soon.
It’s not cheap to take a family of seven to a snow park for the day, and the price tag to build one is even more outrageous: Try $65-million to enjoy snow attractions in the Gateway City.
Developers of the facility say the park would be more geared towards people from out of town.
There are several other places around the world that have a facility such as this one.
Dubai, which is hotter than Laredo, was the first place to build an indoor ski park.
England has several of these parks, and there are others throughout Europe that are said to be very successful.
