I know the university got a ton of donations for it.
That being said a snowflex mountain in Denver, SLC, or Tahoe....I think would do great. Just a matter of funding. I was looking at some of the costs for snowflex. Talk about massive overpricing!!!!!
Snowflex is almost made the same exact way that astroturf gets made. They use a different type of plastic, and make the individual pieces of plastic longer and stiffer then regular astroturf. Then then glue foam padding to the bottom of it, and put tiny holes in it for the sprinkler system
It is over 10X as much as astroturf, and you need to have Briton engineering install it.
So Briton engineering is making a killing on the just the sales of the product, then add in installation costs.
It's no wonder that Liberty is the only place in the U.S with an actual dryslope.
It would be much better if there was a product similar to snowflex that was actually somewhat affordable. If that happened I bet we would see far more dryslopes in the U.S then just Liberty.
