SketchUp Ideas

May 9, 2013 By

From the time I was introduced to SketchUp, I’ve had crazy fun playing with different designs. Most of the designs involve some type of snowboard activity, so I hope you like to ride. If not, that’s cool.  You can still enjoy the latest set up that has been bouncing around in my head.

Snowboard, mSnow, Set up, Rail Jam, FunThe fun has yet to start. So much to add. Rails, Jumps, obstacles, and better yet… PEOPLE!!

Can a SketchUp become a reality? I think it can.

SNOWFLEX – Snowboard and Ski the Midwest 365 days a year.

October 21, 2011 By

A Midwest Artificial snowWith unreliable winters in the Midwest, our snow season seems to come and go like it was never here.  Some snowboard and ski seasons are two months long, and if we are lucky snow might be on the ground for four months.  Does this piss anyone off?  As soon as you get into a groove the season ends.  It ticks us and our friends off every year.  The good thing for us is that there is an answer for it all.  SNOWFLEX folks!!!

What is SNOWFLEX…

For those of you who have never heard of Snowflex, here is a quick explanation.  Snowflex is a engineered materiel that allows you to snowboard 365 days out of the year.  It is a carpet like system that has misters, padding and allows you to snowboard or ski down a hill with the same feeling that you would get when you are on the snow.  Brilliant!

What does this mean for those of us that live in BS climates and only have snow on the ground for a small portion of the year?  It means we have to combine forces and get a Snowflex complex in the Midwest right now.  A Snowflex complex can cost any where from a million to 14 million dollars.  So for those of you in the Midwest who are looking to win the X GAMES, The Dew Tour, Gatorade Free Flow Tour, and possibly go to the Olympics.  You need this.

One Snowflex complex in the US

Liberty Mountain located in Lynchberg, VA, has one of the only Snowflex complexes in the US.   Check it out.  How sweet is that?  The possibilities are endless and with a force of people who are passionate about snowboarding and skiing, we believe it can happen.  It might already be happening and we don’t even know about it.  If not, we need to push this idea to the max and get it going.

PARX Thoughts

Throughout the Midwest we have heard of a few new resorts that are about to open.  Why waste your time and money on only being able to be open four months out of the year?  Why not invest your money in something that people can come to all year?!?!  It is new, innovative, and something that is not around.  Lets get this going!!

Do you know anyone with money.  Do you have money?  Do you know anyone who would want to snowboard and ski All day, Everyday?  Do you like the idea?  If so shoot us an email at info@parxbyjont.com.  We would love to hear from you.
