Alpine skiing indoors on ski simulation equipment for learning and training.
Simulated Downhill Skiing and snowboarding:
Simulated downhill skiing and snowboarding indoors requires a snow substitute and a mountain substitute. An inclined rolling carpet has been employed for this purpose at "Virtual Snow", a Los Angeles training facility and equipment provider.
Edging enables turning and your progression down the slope just as on snow.
