okay so a little background on the mSnow. it is made by the Schrab brothers, Luke and Adam. Who are, if you do not already know, amazing skiers and great people. They started making mSnow 2 years ago and it is super legit. I have skied on it twice and it hurts iike a bitch if you fall but you can carve onto rails and stuff just like real snow. It may be a bit expensive but it will last and you will love it. Sorry for this whole rant but i thought i would put my say in about mSnow since i know both Luke and Adam, and have been lucky enough to ride on their product.
