The Liberty Mountain Snowflex Centre was first designed in 2005 to give students of the university a unique sporting experience while using the college’s mountain property. The ski and snowboard slope is made out of “snowflex,” a unique dryslope material.
The center offers tubing, skiing, snowboarding, and bag jumping.
Liberty University has an informative description on its website, but to summarize: it’s layers of soil, gravel, cushioning, and the Snowflex material. These layers create a snow-like experience. It’s both slippery and has grip. This surface stays consistent all year-round, so no need to worry about it getting iced over in the winter.
It shouldn’t be a surprise that there are plenty of great lessons available at Liberty Mountain Snowflex Centre. After all, it’s part of Liberty University! The center offers ski and snowboarding lessons. The Snowflex mountain is a more comfortable surface on which to learn. It’s padded, making it easier to fall without injury, and it’s consistent. You won’t have to worry about the quality or type of snow. The Snowflex surface is always ideal!
