What to Enjoy

The indoor coaching facility is NOT cold, with temperatures in a comfortable range between 20-degrees Celsius to 30-degress Celscius. This environment makes great for skiers and snowboarders to learn the sports all year round as it accelerates the learning process by up to eight times than learning on snow.

The indoor facility uses advanced simulators that were manufactured by Maxxtraxks in the Netherlands. The slopes are designed similar to giant treadmills with high quality synthetic grass surface sprayed with water to create a realistic mist. The coaches have direct control of the slopes’ speed and slants, adjusting them for the safety of skiers and snowboarders.

The Urban Xtreme Ski Simulators are “better than the real thing” when it comes to learning to ski and snowboard. You can learn 8 x faster on these things than you can in real snow brand ambassador – Jacqui Cooper, a 5 x World Champion Aerial Skier

Who Will Enjoy

Advanced-level skiers or snowboarders (and even beginners!) are welcome at the Urban Xtreme slopes. The team of coaches is made up of professionals that are members of the Australian Professional Snowsport Instructors.

Aside from different coaching sessions, the slopes can also be rented for a private function with up to eight attendees or 12 persons if all of them are children. For group sessions however, skiers must be at least four years old and snowboarders must be at least 7 years old. Younger children are advised to take the one-on-one sessions.
