I live like an hour away from that slope on the first video, sure it's big and it's got everything, but
still I prefer to go to the indoor slope (real snow, and more soft to fall on)
ps : the snowflex thing is pretty soft to fall on, neveplast hurts like hell...
haha yeah man... shits nasty, he didnt have a shirt on and under rotated a misty 5.
snowflex is pretty fun, deffinately not comparable to snow though.. just allows me to ski in the summer though :)
If this is referring to snowflex, this is actually completely false. Snowflex gets easier to turn on as it breaks in. I'm sure there is a point of diminishing returns in which it just gets simply too old, but for the first 5 or so years, it continually gets better, faster and easier to turn on.
A completely bone dry snowflex surface will absolutely not permanently damage your base. Remove wax/diamond grind...yep for sure, but absolutely not perminant damage.
But yeah, falling on snowflex will definitely cut you without wearing proper gear.
when i lived in england i lived near the biggest dry slope in the UK. wycombe summit. it burned down in 2005 i think it was. i was devestated. they just left the dendix there so i took a few tiles that werent burnt and i ended up with a really small inrun at my house. i had to leave the tiles there when we moved back to the states.
