Snowflex Promises Year-Round Powder

The first Snowflex year-round wintersports slope in the United States is currently being built in Lynchburg, Virginia for Liberty University.

Snowflex is a revolutionary polymer composite artificial surface for ski and snowboard slopes that is placed atop a shock absorption layer. Snowflex is made in tiles and can be shaped to replicate an authentic alpine environment.

The Snowflex surface allows wintersports to take place at essentially any location at any time of year. Indeed, Dieter Sturm, the USA rep for Snowflex and Briton Engineering Developments, UK says, "I've spent 5-1/2 years of my life with this vision for the States. It's been an uphill battle as a rep to get people to understand how this surface can really work as a high-performance alternative to real snow."
