FUN. FITNESS. SKI.
Queensland has it all; sunshine, surf and now snowsports! Enjoy the experience of skiing and snowboarding indoors, all year round in a city location. As the home to Queensland’s only indoor slopes, Urban Xtreme has everything you need to develop or perfect your skills before your next snow holiday. Suitable for beginners and seasoned snow-lovers, the best part is that you’ll learn up to 8x faster than on snow and you’ll be skiing/boarding like a pro before you go! Whether you’re a beginner or an advanced skier or snowboarder, our slopes cater for all levels and are the fastest way to learn or fine-tune your skills, build muscle memory and get ski fit without waiting for the snow. Our qualified instructor will assist to enhance your skills, fitness, and your sense of adventure!
HOW IT WORKS
Our simulated slopes are essentially like a giant treadmill with high-quality synthetic ski grass, they can go up to speeds of 21kms per hour and a gradient similar to a black run. The machines utilise a state-of-the-art technology that allows the speed and gradient to be adjusted to suit the individual’s skill level and ability making the slopes perfect for all ages and abilities.
Just like the first session at a new gym, you will need some time to familiarise yourself with the simulated surface and our instructors are always on hand to ensure maximum learning efficiency. If you have previous ski or snowboarding experience you’ll find that the biomechanics of the sport are the same but the surface tension and forgiveness of the slope are more like a very thinly groomed slope rather than a powder day. That’s why we focus on the foundations and why this simulation environment translates exceptionally well to the outdoor terrains.
