That's Snow Fun!
So you’re the cool dad who’s a veteran of the Niseki slopes, but Junior is still too young for his first run. Doesn’t mean you can’t prepare him for it. Urban Ski, Singapore’s first and only indoor ski slope, is a gigantic, 12.5m-long, white tilted treadmill that simulates the feel of new snow. The best part is there’s no minimum age, so as long as the ski boots fit, you’re good to go.
