Burton Riglet Park Grand Opening
The Burton Riglet Park is the newest addition to 42/78 Parks & our snowsports program! This is a specially designed area for teaching the tiniest rippers, age 3-5. The Riglet Park uses the concept of terrain based learning, where variations in the terrain are used to teach snowboarding skills. The kids start in the park right from the beginning so learning is fun! The boards are specially designed for first timers with a beveled base and soft flex for easy turning and a "Riglet Reel" which is a retractable leash that allows the instructors to pull the students over the features and lets the kids save their energy for skill development...and having fun.
