Sacramento Bee/Josť Luis Villegas 

Sam Morishima, foreground, owner of SnoZone Ski and Snowboard

School in Sacramento, works with King Smith on a ski deck, a

carpet-covered device that operates like a treadmill. The

machine is useful for both skiing practice and injury

rehabilitation. www.endlesslope.com

  

 

The ski deck is suitable for teaching the basics of snowboarding as well

      as skiing, with the added benefit that the surface is consistent.

Sacramento Bee/Josť Luis Villegas

       Sondra Morishima, 13, daughter of SnoZone Ski and Snowboard School

            owner Sam Morishima, learned how to snowboard in the family garage,

            in the Curtis Park neighborhood of Sacramento.

 

 


Children love the thrill of learning and developing the proper skills while gliding and carving safely on the revolving carpet 


   

Sam Morishima runs his SnoZone Ski and Snowboard School out of his garage in Curtis Park, using a machine that simulates a snowy slope. Above, Morishima works with Jim Gholson on improving his form. Sacramento Bee / Bryan Patrick

 

Sam Morishima can give ski and snowboard lessons indoors with the help of a slope simulator he has set up in his garage. Sacramento Bee/Bryan Patrick
