Hate waiting for winter to roll around before you can do your favorite sports? You’re not alone.
This same frustration inspired a trio of German entrepreneurs with a shared passion for winter sports and backgrounds in textiles and engineering to develop textile dry slopes. The high-tech fabric of Mr. Snow is grippy and robust while allowing for easy gliding, and doesn’t require regular watering or oiling as similar products do.
Whether for downhill or cross-country skiing, tubing, snowboarding or tobogganing, as the startup’s website says: “Just roll out the sliding mats and it’s already winter!”
