Gotta love the one reader comment about how he is a REAL skier and won't go, cause he only ski's REAL mountains.

Exactly what is a REAL skier and what are REAL mountains?

Skiing there would be supporting the religious and political agenda of the sponsoring organization. If you don't want to do this; wait. If this Snowflex stuff is as good as claimed in the pages I've googled, there will be more.

I have been and posted a full report with pics at the new message boards I have been frequenting...

I had a good time.

It is opened daily right now from 5-10PM and the charge is $5 an hour for Mon-Wed, and $7/hr Thu-Sun for non-students.
The vibe was good.
I was asked to hit the beginner hill 2X before going to the main slope. I was very willing to do that, But was laughing inside.

Grand opening is August 29th, when at that time prices will change to half-day and full day passes, common to most hills. but I am told the pricing will stay close to the $5/hr or $7/hr range.

A ski and snowboard school is being created.

It took me a couple runs to start and figure it out, but I was very glad to be riding in August!
The surface material is interesting. I typed all about it at that forum, visit and check it out. You wont have to log in to read and view pics.
