Riglet Park Progression
Kids snowboarding has never been easier
The environment created by our Burton Riglet Park is a magical experience for children and with the evolution of youth equipment, kids can now strap in and start as soon as they can walk. New kid-specific gear like learn-friendly edges that rarely catch and the “Riglet Reel”, which allows for kids to be pulled around without unstrapping, save time and energy for the student and the instructor.
Along with this added ability to tow and teach, recent advancements in terrain-based learning through the use of mellow snow features like rollers, berms and boxes enable kids to discover the sensations of riding real mountain elements in the safety of a controlled environment. Coaches, resorts and families are finding large success with this innovative new program.
Teaming up with Burton Snowboards and Disney & Pixar’s Toy Story, we’ve developed a fun terrain-based learning park. Try each station and work through the basics surrounded by Toy Story themed features and familiar faces that will have your kids almost forget about breaking for hot chocolate.

Work on your stance and what it means to “stay stacked”. The Mini Pipe is a greatplace to practice straight glides and perfect your balance without gaining too much speed.
Compression and decompression are harder to say than actually do. Feel the sensation of riding over varying terrain levels and use your weight to change how you travel on this slight decline filled with mini waves on our Rollers.
Although this may look like a lesson on how to duck ropes, knowing how to get low can be very useful, especially in tight quarters like the glades. How low can you go? Let ourLimbo Bar be the judge as you work on your squats.
Over is as important as under. Harness your hopping ability over our Ollie Bar and learn the basics of how to use your body and board to load and release energy for some cool results.
Learning how to use both edges is something every rider must be able to do in order to steer. Balance will be put to the test, but our Banked Turns will help you feel the sensation of your weight shifting, guiding your board through the shaped turns.
Brave our Mini Boxes and learn how to slide on artificial surfaces early on. Take what you’ve learned about your board, balance and body position and let it translate onto our entry level freestyle features.
