Local Business Creates Snowboard Park With Blue Turf

Updated: Wednesday, November 20 2013, 11:15 AM CST

You don't need snow to snowboard. Texas Ski Ranch in New Braunfels has come up with a way to still enjoy winter activities in Central Texas.

Instead of snow, blue turf has been placed on a hillside and with a little water and a little soap you can shred just like if you were on a mountain packed with snow.

The owners of the Texas Ski Ranch teamed up with Burton, a famous snowboarding company, to make the course challenging for all skill levels. On one side they have the beginner's course meant to correct any of your bad habits and throughout the rolling slope there are rails for all the dare devils out there.

Instructors at the park say their goal is for families to come to the Texas Ski Ranch before they head to the mountains. That way when you get there, you'll have you snowboarding basics down to a T and you won't spend precious vacation time on your bum.

The Texas Ski Ranch is for people of all ages. You can freestyle or take a lesson. They even do birthday parties and eveb have a tubing park. The entire experience is affordable too. It's $15 dollars for an one hour pass and $19 for all your gear. Boarders and skiers are welcome to bring their own equipment.
