OUR TERRAIN-BASED LEARNING TECHNIQUE
Our Terrain-Based Learning approach is a cutting edge teaching system. We sculpt the learning terrain with mini half-pipes, rollers and banks to create an intuitive learning environment that guides skiers and snowboarders through turns and into stops. This terrain is geared towards removing the fear and allowing the participant to focus on staying relaxed; having fun while quickly progressing. Even our Freestyle Terrain Parks are built in such a way to encourage progression and use for the entire family.
THE NEW MOUNTAIN KIDS ADVENTURE CENTER
This new center is home base for Jay Peak’s littlest skiers and riders. The facilities houses our Jay Explorers program, indoor learning area as well as a childcare center. The Progression Terrain behind the new Mountain Kids Adventure Center features our Playtime with Toy Story Riglet Park – developed by Burton and Snow Park Technologies (SPT) in conjunction with Disney and the only of it’s kind in the East.
PLAYTIME AT THE BURTON TOY STORY RIGLET PARK
The Riglet Park is an interactive space for snowboards between the ages of 3 and 5 years old designed to allow kids to play and have fun while learning to enjoy snowboarding. With giant wooden Toy Story characters and sculpted snow features, the park couples learning and entertainment to make for a great time. To learn more about our Riglet Park, please click here.
