AstroTurf® SnowSport is the cost-effective solution to all types of year-round winter sports activities.

GrassWorx SnowSport Surfaces are perfect for literally all artificial ski slopes from learning facilities for small children up to pro-level free-style skiing, aerial ramps and mogul slopes. Snowboarding quarter pipes, half pipes, jumps, rails and slope-style areas also adapt well to our SnowSport Surfaces.

In addition, tobogganing slides, tubing runs and cross-country applications can be made even more fun for all ages when the infrastructure is supported by GrassWorx SnowSport Surfaces.

SnowSport, with its unique combination of pile and 'springy' performance, has earned an enviable reputation for combining the high quality gliding and edging characteristics best suited to all skiing and snowboarding disciplines.  

Skis and snowboards have to glide on the surface, yet generate resistance to their direction of travel when turned across the slope. Gliding requires low friction while high friction is required when traveling (edging) across the slope.

The 19 mm pile of our SnowSport makes its gliding characteristics particularly appealing to ski aerialists, free-ride skiers and snowboarders using ramps and kickers. The stiffness of the bristles of the pile provides sufficient resistance to lateral motion.

Do the current warmer winter temperatures have you and your business down?

Recently, warmer temperatures have been cutting into the winter sports season throughout the United States and Canada.

GrassWorx SnowSport Surfaces will extend the skiing season by weeks, or months and offers the opportunity of an additional revenue stream during the off-season.

GrassWorx SnowSport Surfaces is the right product at the right price at the right time and is perfect for The Ski Area Recreational Opportunity Enhancement Act. (S. 382/H.R. 765)

SnowSport Installation:

Each installation is different. GrassWorx can provide design/oversight expertise at the earliest stage.
