Our Rad Riders program is our learn to snowboard program for children ages 5-7.
Maple Ski Ridge is a Burton Learn to Ride learning center!
During the first two sessions, students will play games and learn basic skills to get them excited and ready to venture out on the hill on week 3. Week 1 primarily will be spent in their boots and with one foot strapped in. On week 2, riders will warm up through games and quickly progress to one foot strapped in drills. They will then start doing basic movements with both feet strapped in. Solid basic skills such as walking, getting up, stopping, and directional changes are important safety skills to know before they use our handle tow or come down the big hill!
There is an 8:2 student to instructor ratio, which is a smaller ratio to give children the extra attention they need. A 4-hour area-use-pass is included for the day of your lesson and is valid starting 30 minutes before the start time of your lesson. This allows students to warm up before their lesson time and then practice new skills after their lesson.
Rental equipment is not included in the original price. Seasonal rentals can be added for an additional fee during registration.
