Bearfire TexasA company named Bearfire Resorts, LLC has ambitious plans to open a huge ski resort in North Texas near the Fort Worth area. Former House Majority Leader Dick Armey is an advisor to the project.

Armey says in a statement, "Not only will Bearfire Resort be a huge economic boost to North Texas, but its innovative approach may prove to be a trend-setter for other cities around the country looking for ways to spur their local economies."

Charlie Aaron, president of Bearfire Resorts, LLC, says in a statement, "We are ecstatic to be leading the charge to provide such an unprecedented entertainment experience in such a seemingly improbable place. It gives the team a thrill to think that in just a few years, we will have made possible the scenario in which people book their year-round ski vacations to Texas."

The 650,000 square feet resort is possible because of a technology called Snowflex.
