If you are considering a visit, the website is a little misleading. You don't get a full hour on the machine, as you are split into two pairs and take it in turns. I'd say you get about 35-40 mins.
And you'll need at least 3-4 sessions to reap any benefit. The first two, at least, will be spend getting used to the machine.
I'd say it was a good alternative to a traditional dry ski slope if there's not one in your area, but you'd be better off saving the money and spending it on lessons on your holiday.
A friend that has a ski shop just bought a unit made from a Russian video simulation company.
Tested the unit and found it is very realistic and does make a skier learn the correct position.
I had 50 skiers try it and found the instructor identified very quickly most of the errors for each skier. No jacket, pants etc,,,so you see well all body parts.
