Liberty University, in Lynchburg, Virginia, is home to the only Snowflex surface mountain in the US. This plastic mountain gives skiers and snowboarders the opportunity to ski all year long. This season, West Virginia’s Snowshoe Mountain is hosting a season kick-off party at the Snowflex slope.

The Snowshoe Open gives you a chance to get some good warm-ups in before the actual ski area opens. The Open also features a big air competition and a rail jam. The party starts at 12:00 noon Friday and goes well into the night. Starting at 10:30 PM, finalists for the big air and for the rail jam will compete, with winners taking home some cool prizes. If you buy a Liberty University Snowflex Centre lift ticket, registration for this event is free, and you can sign up starting at 11:00 AM on Friday.
