A Connecticut ski resort, Powder Ridge in Middlefield says it will open a 500-foot run in August that features a “high-tech” surface that acts as artificial snow. The resort also plans to open two tubing lanes covered in the same material. Sean Hayes, who runs the resort, says skiers and snowboarders will be required to wear long pants and helmets.
