show full reporthide full reportUpdated: 8:51am Wednesday 19 Jun 2019 - Opening on June 28th. Due to a lack of the white stuff falling,... we have postponed our opening for a week. Let's get this winter underway with whatever you can think of to make it snow. Snow dances, satanic rituals (to Ullr), even sacrifice a goat or two. It's all good!
