You may or may not have heard of snowflex. Long story short, it’s a synthetic material that feels like snow, meaning year-round snowboarding in any climate. Liberty Mountain, located on the campus of Liberty University is starting a competition that will be broadcast through online episodes every two weeks. The Snowflex Centre will be taking five guys and five girls, with little to no snowboard experience, and putting them through a rigorous two-month training process and will hold a competition at the end for an outerwear setup from Quiksilver. In episode two, the new snowboarders learn to turn on the snowflex slope and some of the past Trails to Rails riders explain how impactful the experience was for them. You can watch episode one if you missed it.
