Best material for summer skiing?
summer is coming, sadly, and I want to get a rail set-up going, but don't know what material I should use for the synthetic snow. any suggestions?
That orange construction fence is fast as fuck, astro-turf works well. Or you can be a jerry and buy some legit stuff online like snowflex. Hope this helps!

Astro turf works well but it's a tad slow and you have to constantly spray it with water. The longer the fake grass on the turf the better, also if at all possible don't buy it!!! I got mine from a turf baseball field that was getting redone, there were 2 dumpsters full of scraps from the new turf they were installing.
You can use the orange net fence stuff but I remember when my friend had it we always got tangled up. Then we used that cheap white fencing material and turf.
You can probably find astroturf for free by ringing and asking companies for it. I got a huge off cut for free that was more than enough.
