Dry ski slopes tend to be more unforgiving than snow. Dry ski slopes are made up of plastic bristles which can tear at your clothes and even hurt when you fall over. Although this might not be seen as a bad thing to some and may even encourage you not to fall.
Dry ski slopes can cause ski and snowboard edges to dull, and can cause some scratches to bases and waxes to wear out quickly. Special waxes designed for dry ski slopes can help to protect them. Improvements to the material used at dry ski slopes to decrease damage is constantly being developed.
Snow is claimed to have very good sliding capacities, is predictable in all climates and does not harm the ski or sliding surface. The snow carpet evidently has no negative environmental impact. So the mats can remain on the surface 365 days a year. But it is also possible to remove them very quickly if it is required.

A very stiff flex is a great option for taller, heavier or aggressive advanced to expert skiers who require a high level of responsiveness to deliver precise performance. Recreational boots top-out at around 110 flex for women and 130 flex for men, and beyond that, the range goes into racing models.
Skiers Physical Aspects:
If you are a taller and/or heavier-set skier, the stiffer end of the spectrum will better suit you, as a softer ski may feel too loose and not provide the needed support.
SOFTER SKIS VS.
Generally speaking, skis that have a stiff flex will feel stable at speed and have good precision on hard snow. Stiff skis grip better on hard snow, too, because they maintain full-edge contact and don’t bounce off the snow. However, a ski that is too stiff will buck you around and burn out your quads.
Dry ski slopes have been around for almost 100 years, the first in Austria in 1927 was just a 70m wooden slope with some artificial yellow powder that was supposed to resemble snow covering it. Thankfully since then they have evolved massively and are now made with many different materials.
