Ski / Snowboard Simulator/Trainer


Hi, I've always wanted to figure out a way to build my own ski/snowboard simulator to help teach my kids(and others) how to snowboard. In our  & case, give them refreshers since they know how to snowboard and they're only.  My 17yr old daughter, on the other hand, that's another story. She hates snowboarding because she can't grasp it, so this would be good for her too.  Here are some links to give you an idea of the type of simulator I am referring to:

I plan to modify an old treadmill to make something like the videos you have posted. My other idea was to modify something similar to a gyroboard (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Q0V7BMYyyQ) with a hacked Wii Fit Balance Board for use in Wii snowboard games.
