Snowboard classes for Ridge Riders (5 to 7 year olds) and Juniors/Adults (8 and
older) are available for all abilities. Classes are divided into the following levels.
Ridge Riders: You are never too young to start snowboarding. Ridge
Riders will introduce your child to the fun sport of snowboarding and is for children
ages 5 to 7 years old.
Discover: If you've never snowboarded before,
then our Discover program is the one to start out with. This program is designed
to introduce your child to the sport of snowboarding, get comfortable with the equipment
and get you up and down on our Bunny Hill and Porcupine Hill.
Green: This level is offered for those who have
snowboarded before but are still more comfortable on our beginner hills.. By the
end of the class, each student should be able to ride unassisted on our gentle Bunny
Hill, Porcupine Hill and have been introduced to the intermediate runs.
Blue: In this level, we perfect the novice
turn and introduce you to the basic turn. By the end of a session, each boarder
should be comfortable boarding our beginner and intermediate runs.
Black: In the black level, our professional
instructors will assist you in improving your basic turns and work on skills such
as balance, pivoting, edge control and linked turns.
Red: This level is designed to fine-tune the
skills of the advanced boarder and perfect carving turns and higher-level maneuvers.
While your children are in lessons, why not ski or ride for the day. We have a new
parent ticket and rental price which makes it much more affordable to ski while
your kids are in their class. Lift tickets are only $15, ski rentals are $10 and
snowboard rentals are $15. And best of all, the lift ticket and rentals are good
for the whole day and for all lifts. Pick yours up at reception when you get your
kids lesson ticket.
