Liberty University Snowflex Mountain Resort
Words and Photos Russ Shea
For those of you that aren’t aware the UK has a thriving snowboard scene, we ride all manor of surfaces but mostly Snowflex. It’s a dry matting that enables you to quench your thirst for sliding every day of the year.
The first Snowflex slope ever to be built in the USA is located at Liberty University – Virginia and we went for the Opening Session.
Looking down from the top of the slope you have 2 choices, a kicker line or a rail/box line with both of them running into a quarter pipe/wall ride at the bottom. We were kindly invited to ride the BEST dryslope in the world and bring a few Brits over to show the locals what can be achieved.
Various US dignitaries attended the opening day from State Senators to the local Mayor with some 3000 spectators watching the all the action. This had to be the biggest dryslope event of all time!
