Snow damages inflated domed sports facility in Bismarck

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — An inflated domed sports facility in Bismarck is closed for a few days while officials repair damage from a weekend snowstorm.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — An inflated domed sports facility in Bismarck is closed for a few days while officials repair damage from a weekend snowstorm.

Fore Seasons Center clerk Jordan Buechler tells The Associated Press that snow piled up on one side of the dome and caused the tarplike material on that side to deflate earlier this week. It damaged some golf and soccer equipment inside, which punctured the fabric.

Buechler says no one was hurt. A damage estimate isn't immediately available.

The dome is at a local golf course and is operated by the city's Parks and Recreation Department. It is inflated by air pressure and has a driving range, soccer areas and batting cages.

The Sunday storm dumped 17.3 inches of snow on Bismarck, a single-day record for the city.
