Urban Xtreme Adventures is a recreational facility that offers snow sport and adventure experiences. Activities will be aimed at adults and kids of all ages and abilities in one location facilitated by qualified instructors.
We will offer a high quality adventure experience with a focus on inclusion. The activities will suit individuals, families and people of all ages, abilities and social backgrounds.
As well as encouraging active participation and sporting fun, the centre actively promotes health and fitness. We help people ‘find the fun in fitness’ through a range of unique, extreme adventure activities.
We will provide the South East Queensland community with a range of opportunities to participate in adventure sports and activities and learn new skills that would normally be out of their reach; financially, geographically and physically.
The areas of the centre will have the following adventure zones:
To date we have purchased 3 ski simulators and equipment to set up an indoor ski centre. Our vision is to combine ski and adventure in one location to create a unique snow sport and adventure destination.
We have spent the last year understanding our customer needs and expectations, raising investment, researching equipment and searching for a premises that meets all our requirements.
After looking at many properties we have finally found an exciting opportunity in a fantastic location in Brisbane, approx. 10kms from the CBD in an easily accessible location that meets all our needs. We are currently in the process of negotiating these premises.
Our goal is to secure a premises in the coming months, attract further investment and open the business in June 2017, in time for the NSW ski season kick off.
For more information on our equipment and videos of all our proposed activities check out our Facebook page ‘ Urban Xtreme Adventures ’.
Urban Xtreme is the brainchild of Founders Lindsay Davis and Darren Montgomery who had a vision to create an indoor snow sport and adventure facility in Brisbane. Lindsay and Darren originally from Northern Ireland, became Australian Citizens in early 2016. They are the proud parents of two young Aussie children and are passionate about ski and adventure.
The Urban Xtreme team is a group of professionals with various backgrounds in Marketing, Business Development, Finance, Events, Business Management and Centre Management. Together we have a combined experience in building, running and operating indoor ski, traditional sports, adventure and family entertainment centres. We are passionate about creating Australia’s first indoor ski, sport and adventure centre for the community of Brisbane. We are determined to be the NO.1 place to be in Queensland for Indoor Skiing, Adventure and Sporting activities by creating a safe, fun, active environment run by professionals.
We have always been adventure and thrill seekers, fitness enthusiasts and keen snowboarders. After immigrating to Brisbane 7 years ago we realised there was a serious gap in the market for snow sports and adventure. After extensive research, we discovered a lack of facilities where people could participate in adventures activities that suited the whole family or practice and enhance our snowboarding skills and nowhere where we could introduce our children to skiing locally. This is when the idea was born and the research journey began.
We began to work passionately towards our goal to create a business that was meaningful, have a purpose and one that embodies our values and beliefs. Our motto is: ‘Finding the fun in fitness’.
We are very blessed to have the opportunity to live and raise our family within the Brisbane community. We want to make a meaningful contribution to the lives of our local community by building our vision. We believe our purpose in life is to educate and encourage the community to lead an active life by ‘finding the fun in fitness’ taking them to a ‘happy place’ through the use of adventurous sports and activities and creating a place that encourages an active participation in families and couples.
We are strong believers in the motto ‘those who play together stay together’.
Our world class Ski Slope Simulators utilise state-of-the-art technology and are the best in the world. The slopes are essentially giant treadmills with a surface of synthetic grass. The surface of the simulators and the terrain park is designed specifically for skiing and snowboarding – in a warm climate! Qualified, trained instructors will run lesson and will control both the speed and incline of the simulators and the slopes have built-in safety stops.
The simulated slopes and our vision for Urban Xtreme’s is supported by Jackie Cooper, 5 times World Aerial Ski Champion and Olympian and we have a number of major Sponsors lined up to support the us when we launch.
Practice new tricks, perfect your style on our interchangeable rails at the terrain park
Imagine being able to enjoy the activities normally only reserved for remote, winter, snow parks and mountains all year round right here in Brisbane, Australia’s ‘New World City’ and the fastest growing City in the World and well-known tourist destination. All in a safe, fun and low cost environment. Add to that the ability to improve your skills, stay ski/climb fit so that when its time to take that trip to the Snowy or Rocky Mountains, wherever in the world you’ll be able to make the most of your holidays.
Imagine if the next Olympic Skier or Climber came from Brisbane, all because of the opportunities Urban Xtreme brought to the community… this can be reality with your support!
We will also be providing a place for sports people, Olympians, school groups and both disabled and special need groups to train and hone many skills. Add to this an amazing cafe and bar with a variety of health food and beverages where people can come to relax and grab a meal while watching all the excitement of people doing extreme activities.
Our two biggest risks to our business are
We need to prove to our current and potential investors the interest the centre would build from the public. One of the main reasons for starting this campaign is to not only raise funds but to show the support behind the project, which is why every little donation and sharing counts.
Another obstacle we face is getting council approval for our premises. By convincing the local council that the centre is a viable project and something that they should support. Again, this project would greatly help show the support we have and how the centre will be a major asset to the community for many years to come. We have already secured the support of a number of local Councillors and MP’s in Brisbane area and Brisbane Marketing. We have also engaged with the Lord Major of Brisbane who has advised he will look into our project in the coming weeks.
We realise not everyone is in a position to contribute financially or because of geographically location however the BEST thing anyone can do for us is spread the WORD!
You also have the opportunity of donating a small amount if you just want to support the project via our pledge options.

Urban Xtreme - May Update
Thank you for supporting our project, the level of support we have received in our pre sale campaign has overwhelmed us.
Your support has allowed us to show both the local Council and investors that are Centre is a much-needed facility for the Brisbane Community.
In the last few weeks we have officially signed the lease on our premises in Brisbane's North side in Hendra, only 10kms from the CBD. We have lodged our development application to Council and we are very confident we will get this approved. We have received support from local Councilors and the Lord Major who announced at local Small Business event that he wants to see our business open in Brisbane. We are doing all we can to get this approved as soon as possible. We hope to have the DA passed by October for a December opening.
We are excited that our ski slopes and gear has arrived on site in the last few weeks.
New activities that will be added to the centre include a new version of Laser Tag Sport and also a Ninja Warrior Course.
We still have a number of attractive investment and partnership opportunities available; if you are interested in being apart of this exciting project and building Urban Xtreme's first adventure hub please email email@example.com for more information.
