Terrain Based Learning™ is a groundbreaking methodology focused on building the fundamental skills of skiing and snowboarding in an environment specifically designed to support the learning process while minimizing the intimidation factor of a new sport. Sculpted snow features create intuitive learning terrain that moves guests through balance, sliding, stopping and turning in a natural fashion, while keeping speed low and incline gentle. Each of the resorts two learning areas feature this enhanced terrain, which has at its heart, FUN and learning. The purpose of Terrain Based Learning is to allow first time guests to experience the thrill of sliding at even the most basic ability level, while building confidence and a solid skill set.
Because Terrain Based Learning features are designed entirely of snow, the feature build is weather and snow condition dependent. Early and late season lessons may not take place in features; however beginner students will still follow the same basic progressions, adapted to conditions and available terrain.
