Keeping Vermonters In Their Ski Boots
On October 1, 2015 Gonzo's HD Sports welcomed the SkyTechSport simulator to the city of South Burlington, Vermont.
As the state that is proudly known as the “skiing capital of the East,” the SkyTechSport ski and snowboard simulator makes the dream of racing the slopes all year-round a reality. The 8,500 sq. ft. space brings real sporting equipment to a virtual reality dream featuring HD Simulator Technology with sports such as: golf, baseball, basketball, soccer, football, hockey and now skiing and snowboarding! We are proud part of Gonzo's HD Sports team and moving forward, SkyTech hopes to recreate the famous Stowe Mountain in Vermont.
“Vermont brings us more U.S. Winter Olympians per capita than any other state, and that’s all with relatively short mountains that limit skiers’ time on the slopes even during peak season. With our ski and snowboard simulator providing infinite slopes for Vermonters to train on regardless of the weather, the potential for what this local ski talent can accomplish is absolutely limitless.”
Alex Golunov, head of SkyTechSport U.S.
Gonzo’s will have a crew of certified ski instructors offering professional training with modern techniques. In addition to advancing the skills of experienced athletes, the simulator is also ideal for helping newbies learn in a safe environment before getting on the slopes.
“We are beyond excited for the launch of the ski and snowboard simulator at Gonzo’s. Since our opening in 2007, this marks the 11th sports simulator at our location, and it is the biggest and greatest yet! We’re giving South Burlington and surrounding communities a chance to ski like they never have before – indoors and we encourage you to come ride the virtual slopes this fall before the season officially starts!”
Steve Gonsalves, Founder of Gonzo’s HD Sports
The SkyTechSport simulator is perfect for parties, corporate gatherings, guys’ or girls’ night out, and time with family. Adjacent to the bar in a new room designed to have a ski lodge feel, the simulator can be reserved at Gonzo's in advance and used by individuals or groups for $60* per hour or $40* per half hour.
*Rates are based on reservation time; not per person. Call (802) 881-0660 to make an appointment.
