Slopes Are Open in Leesburg

Pro-Fit Ski & Mountain Sports unveiled its Inside Ski Training Center on Monday morning, giving area residents an opportunity to train or practice their skiing or snowboarding skills close to home.

The 2,500-square-foot space, located adjacent to Pro-Fit’s retail shop in the Virginia Village shopping center, features two slopes—a revolving treadmill and a static slope. Pitch and speed can be modified based on a student’s ability level. The “snow” on the slope is AstroTurf, sprayed with a fine mist to reduce friction.

The Inside Ski Training Center provides private and group lessons, and the slopes can even be rented out for an hour, or a half-hour conditioning session. For more information, go to
