On Saturday, January 12, ASM will host the region’s first Burton Riglet Park Tour, which is a mobile product demo and mini-snowboard park geared towards introducing children as young as 2 to the sport of snowboarding. A custom children’s learning terrain area will be provided at the base of ASM and Burton Snowboard experts will be offering a free “introductory terrain park experience” for children ages 2 to 6. The idea is to get children comfortable on the snow, and moving over small changes in terrain – establishing sound fundamentals for park riding.
Registration is FREE for the Burton Riglet Park Tour and will be held in the Alpine Ski Shop throughout the day. There will be 2 main sessions of park orientation in the Riglet Terrain Park – from 10am-12 noon, and from 1pm – 3pm. The overall experience should last around 30-45 minutes for each child. Parents are encouraged to watch the action from the front slope entrance, or from the observation deck on the 2nd level of the lodge. Helmets are required for children to participate.
Appalachian Ski Mtn. is excited to host a Burton Riglet Park Tour for the 2012-13 season, a mobile product demo and mini-snowboard park geared towards introducing kids as young as 3 to the sport of snowboarding. A custom park area with features designed for small children learning will be constructed especially for the event. Instruction will be offered during a morning and afternoon session, and best of all, its FREE! What better way to get your child started shredding?
