North Miami ski enthusiasts may soon be able to hit the slopes without traveling far — the buyers of the Biscayne Landings development have plans to transform the 193-acre site into an indoor snow sports center. The new owner of the failed development site, Solar Park Management, has plans to build a 550-foot-tall ski slope, 163-meter ski jump, snowboarding half-pipe and ice skating rink at the former toxic landfill. But, despite their grand plans, the developers encountered more than a few bumps during a recent City Council meeting, when nearby residents expressed trepidation over the development, citing a lack of transparency.
