Why Snowflex? - Introduction

Snowflex® is a high performance synthetic system which enables a commercial snowsports center to be built for year round use, anywhere.


  • There have been at least 50 ski surface inventions in the last 50 years but Snowflex® is recognized as the closest replication of snow. It is the first invention developed by a snowsports company from the end users perspective. Previous synthetic materials were by-products from the brush, plastic or carpet industry.
  • It is softer to fall on than hard pack snow and is therefore safer.
  • It can be used all year round and located anywhere.
  • It is consistent, never needs grooming and requires very little maintenance compared with snow.
  • It is very addictive because of rapid skill development. It creates repeat business.
  • It enables outdoor use, therefore less capital for buildings and very small energy demands.
  • It has a low carbon footprint compared with a refrigerated building.
  • Slopes can be built on land which might otherwise be unusable for building.
  • Services the existing snowsports market.
  • Builds new business opportunities
  • Encourages new users to snowsports.
  • It's fun, it's slippy and it's safe.
