snova is one of many indoor snowboarding locations where boarding pro debban trains out of season. the 200msq indoor slope has half pipes, ramps and rails. urban sport freaks reach the summit comfortably by escalator. by night the new snow made of water mixed with chemicals is pumped out. the artificial snow is relatively hard and sticks to your fingers when touched, besides that it feels natural. intro courses, personal coaches and gear can be hired at snova. on the weekend the slope is so popular that you can get frozen feet waiting for your jump. the best way to get to snova is by cab from the mizonoguchi station. snowboard talent debban also produces the ‘chapter’ vhs series where you can hear him rapping.
