We are the only university in the world that provides FREE year-round Winter activities for our students. That's right tubing, skiing, snowboarding and more in all for seasons. Come to LU for a degree of your choice and leave with a minor in mountain fun!
Jump on the Olympic Trampoline
Bounce around for fun or work on aerial awareness for freestyle on our olympic grade trampoline. This is not just your standard backyard trampoline!
We now have trampoline boards that students can rent for free as well!
No more than 10 individuals are allowed in the trampoline area at a time. Call (434) 582-3539 to ask about how busy we are before you head up.
Ski or Board on Snowflex
Briton Engineering's patented Snowflex surface makes it possible to participate in snowsports year-round! There are a few things that you should know before you show up to shred at LMSC:
Freestyle skiers and boarders should check out the LU Ski & Snowboard Team. Be on the lookout for an interest meeting early in the Fall Semester.
If you have never tried a snowsport before we highly recommend working with one of our instructors (some can also teach freestyle riding) by calling (434) 592-4090 to schedule a lesson.
2 inches of foam cushioning underneath the Snowflex material ensures that the different impacts that you might experience while riding are minimal.
Snowflex can be abrasive to bare skin. We highly recommend covering your knees and elbows to avoid the dreaded "carpet burn" as much as possible.
Expect to get a little wet. Snowflex has a misting system designed to keep the slope fast all year long. Yep... even in the heat of the Summer!
Tube on Neveplast
There are three different tubing runs at LMSC. One smaller run (80 ft. long) infront of the Barrick-Falwell Lodge and two larger runs next to the main slope (350 and 500 ft.)
Hangout in the Barrick-Falwell Lodge
The lodge at LMSC has a ski resort feel to it with wood accents and trophy animals. It is the perfect place to get away for either studying or relaxation!
We are connected to the same WiFi network as the rest of campus.
There is a small retail/concessions stand stocked with LMSC apparel, drinks, and snacks (Flames Cash accepted).
