First Time Experience

First Time Experience

We have reinvented the way we introduce snow sports by creating an easier, faster, and ultimately more fun experience. This package is perfect for adults and children who have never tried skiing or snowboarding.

The overall goal of Fun-Based Learning is for the newcomer to have fun! Inside the learning area, newcomers are introduced to the sensation of skiing or snowboarding right away, as the focus is on “going,” rather than “stopping.” Newcomers to the learning area will encounter shaped snow that will naturally control their speed and direction, making it easy to start, turn and stop!
