First-time skiers and snowboarders will experience hands-on instruction in our Terrain-Based Teaching Terrain which utilizes sculpted snow to create a fun learning environment. The shaped snow features will guide you by naturally controlling your speed, allowing you to focus on moving and having fun! The group setting of our beginner areas allows you to focus on practicing your new skills and movements; all while being supervised by our instructors.
