Buenas Snowshoes

Here’s a natural born skier. I wish we had a ski resort in Texas back when our sons were learning to ski and  snowboard. We are looking forward to checking out Bearfire Resorts in Fort Worth. Scheduled to open in the fall of 2009. It will consist of a made made mountain constructed  from steel and concrete. the skiing surface will be made of “Snowflex” a surface designed a decade ago. It is similar to Astroturf, lubricated by misters and it has a foam padding underneath to cushion a fall. I like that idea. It may not be real snow, but it’s not as slippery as snow.  Olympic athletes train on Snowflex year round. If it’s good enough for them, it should be good enough for recreational skiers.
