I'm curious to see how all this technology will work. Sounds amazing. I imagine they'll have to use some special glass to keep the sun from creating a 'greenhouse' and making it too warm for the snow.

Somehow.

They are also going to use the runoff water used to cool the place for landscaping purposes.

The dome thing is still inefficient though because if sunlight is getting in, then that means heat will get in via electromagnetic radiation (since that's what light is)

Have they come up with anything yet?

Like Mith said, I wonder if a special kind of glass could be made or something.
