Indoor Rolling carpet Simulator

Howdy,

Does anyone know if there is a us/canadian based manufacturer of the indoor Slope simulator. So far with google searches, I am only able to find EU based manufacturers.

What I am looking for is similar to this
http://www.proleski.com
Thanks

I saw a youtube video with one in LA or San Diego. The comments had a few negative responses about it since people kept hitting their faces on that bar at the base. No idea if it was Northern America or European made though.

The only thing that could make carpet boarding worse would be pov gopro footage. I'm wondering how much technique actually carries over to real snowboarding.

Their demo video had me second guessing the boarders actual ability. I could also be totally wrong.

hahaha i saw one on the internet the other day based out of sydney, aus. looks like the most repetitive, underwhelming activity ever.. AND they were charging $70+ for a 2 hr session claiming that you get a workout equivalent to 8 hrs on the slopes because theres no chairlift. pffft

Wow. Mesmerizing, but not in a good way. Ha.

It takes something so full of life and awesome and just... makes it so flat.

Hi!
I can say with 100% certainty that such models as the on video, in the world no longer produces (in this model ski simulator are changing angles of inclination of the platform vertically and horizontally)



On the bill the other models, I will not say - but what prevents you from contacting the dealer / manufacturer Proleski and arrange delivery to Canada?
