The opening of the year-round snow park at Powder Ridge in Middlefield is delayed until September 2 instead of its original opening on August 5.
The delay was caused by a slowdown in production. But Powder Ridge does not anticipate any further delays and is confident that they are now on schedule for the new opening date.
Staff members said materials have all arrived.
During the grand opening ceremony, Powder Ridge will unveil a 500-foot run for skiing and snowboarding as well as two lanes for tubing. By the summer of 2018 they plan to expand the run to 2,800 feet, all the way to the top of the ridge.
