Urban Xtreme – Hit the slopes in Brisbane, Snow Bunnies!
URBAN XTREME is here, it’s in Hendra and it’s the HOTTEST place to chill out. Not been yet? Come on in and get cool, man…
Head to 4/370 Nudgee Road, Hendra for the chillest time this side of Thredbo. This is Australia’s LARGEST indoor snow and sports centre and it’s now open to the public!
The whole premise of Urban Xtreme is that it offers Sunshine State families the chance to have a go at skiing and snowboarding without the requirement of expensive (and super heavy!) snow gear. The dry ski slopes are perfectly designed to help you learn these skills WAY faster than you would on real snow – without the snowburn, dehydration, lifts, queues OR freezing cold weather. Achoo!
Urban Xtreme lets you practice inside machines that give you a half hour of skiing and snowboarding time on revolving slopes. If you were to do this in the real world, you’d be covering more than 20,000 vertical feet! (Yikes!)
Is Urban Xtreme for families?
It sure is!
You can have individual lessons with a qualified instructor (one hour long). It’s $45 for kids aged between 4 and 16 and $55 for adults. You can have a group private lesson for four people for $195. If that sounds expensive compare it to the cost of a family holiday to the snow – Urban Xtreme is a no-brainer!
“Urban Xtreme offers an incredible opportunity for Queensland snow-sport enthusiasts to stay ski-fit in the off-season and hone their skills without the expense or inconvenience of travelling.” Jacqui Cooper, Australia’s best aerial skier, is an ambassador for Urban Xtreme.
