NO LIFTS, NO MOUNTAINS, NO SNOW, NO WORRIES.
AS SEEN IN:
“Snowboarder’s “surf” the inside curve of the cylinder, busting out all the same sick tricks they manage on the mountain, but without the exorbitant lift fees.”
“Like to snowboard, but enjoy life in your tropical island? Not a problem with the Snowtunnel, a rotating barrel that lets you snowboard all year long.”
“The Snow Tunnel device is extremely simple and resembles static artificial waves, where the rider slides along an endless stream of water.”
WHAT IS IT?
It’s a seven-by-five metre cylinder filled with ice and powdered snow, that rotates at up to 50kph. Snowboarder’s “surf” the inside curve of the cylinder, busting out all the same sick tricks they manage on the mountain, but without the exorbitant lift fees. The Snowtunnel uses standard refrigerator coils to chill the inner surface of the cylinder. The startup process involves misting 8000 litres of water into the chamber, which causes ice crystals to grow. The snowboarder actually grinds the ice down into a smooth, hardpacked layer similar to the surface of an ice-rink. At the same time, enough of the tiny ice-crystals are broken off to form a thin layer of powdered snow.
IT GETS BIGGER.
OUR NEW BIGGER AND BETTER MACHINE IN PROGRESS
Currently we have a machine that is 7m long x 4.8m diameter, we are in the process of constructiong our bigger version that is as tall as a 3 story house! This will cater for more people in the machine at once, inviting this invention this invention to be suitable for theme parks and large scale events.
