Toy Story Riglet Park

Kids snowboarding has never been easier

Step into a different world and join us on an adventure of a lifetime. Teaming up with Burton Snowboards and Disney & Pixar’s Toy Story, we’ve developed a fun terrain-based learning park. Children will embark on a journey to resuce Space Ranger, Buzz Lightyear, from another planet. But before they are ready, they must go through their own Space Ranger training. The adventure begins with indoor training that will get your child moving though the basics on a board at the same time as prepping them for space exploration. For a copy of thier mission log, click HERE. The Toy Story themed adventure and familiar faces will have your kids almost forget about breaking for hot chocolate.

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.

Launchpad (Flat Ground)

IMG_0438

It is important as a Space Ranger to get used to your environment before immersing yourself in the mission. At the Launchpad, you will get the chance to strap in, warm up, and get used to moving your board on snow. 

The Crater (Mini Pipe)

Riglet_Mini_Pipe

Moving on snow is a lot different than moving on a carpet. In the Crater, you will get to work on your stance and what it means to “stay stacked. ” The Mini Pipe is a great place to practice straight glides and perfect your balance without gaining too much speed.

Moon Dunes (Rollers)

Compression and decompression are harder to say than actually do. Feel the sensation of riding over varying terrain levels and use your weight to effectively travel across the surface of the moon.

Meteor Field (Limbo Bar)

Dodge lasers, jump features and slide across artificial surfaces, and you’ll be prepared for any obstacles you may meet during the rescue mission. Take what you’ve learned about your board, balance and body position and let it translate onto our entry level freestyle features, including mini boxes, a limbo bar, and an ollie bar.

The Claw (Banked Turns)

Banked_Turns_Riglet_2015

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.

Ranger Transport (Magic Carpet)

Carpeteers

Head off to a new planet to find Buzz once the training mission is complete. Going up the magic carpet transforms into an exciting trip to a foreign land with a bigger mini pipe, rollers, banked turns, and perfect slope to move through to bring your child’s snowboarding to the next level.
