Indoor snowboarding?

Since in the Netherlands there ain't mountains, when not in the Alps, I go snowboarding indoor. In "flat" europa there are several indoor-slopes, and I know it's by far not as good as the real thing, you still can have a lot of fun. The one I go for example has the biggest indoor funpark of Europe, containing several kickers, rails, boxes and a stairset.

Does anybody else ever go snowboarding indoor? Are there actually indoor-slopes in the US?

No need to feel sorry for me, I feel blessed that I'm able to do some snowboarding all year, in a funpark with at least 10 obstacels, 4 or 5 kickers (30 footer incl.) etc.

You can feel sorry for people in africa, they need to sandboard. Up to you to try and build a kicker of loose sand in the damn burning sun!
