Not a bad idea if you’re billion dollar ski resort company to set up a little dry-slope in the center of feeder city to promote the sport. It wouldn’t be a one time cost but I’m thinking a turf little hill like this would have minimal running expenses. Here’s how Neveplast pitches it:
“The alpine skiing centers in the city have an enormous advantage in that they are open year round, in all climate conditions, and that they are easily reached by a large number of people.”
Can’t argue with foot traffic but I wonder what the conversion rate for lift ticket buyers would end up being:
“More and more mountain staff realize the importance of these slopes as important vehicles for promotion, for creating a new user base, and for bringing more people into the world of skiing and the mountains.”
Anyway, food for thought. If you are interested in know more about the company behind the video please go HERE.
