OUR MAGIC CARPET!


We were delighted to have our “magic carpet” up and running for the third season.

What’s a “magic carpet” you ask? Simply put a conveyor belt that allows our new or learning ski/boarders an easy way to get up the hill. Just step on the belt and up to go. No handles or seats required.
It is a great new addition to our learn to ski program.

Come and check it out!

TERRAIN PARKS!


RAIL

A metal bar, either rounded or with a small flat surface, which a skier or snowboarder can slide across (called “jibbing”). Rails are defined as anything too thin for a skier to place both skis on without turning. Many people confuse rails with wider surfaces with boxes, however these are not, and are just rails with a little UHMWPE on top.

Table Top

Similar to a box, but much wider. Commonly used by beginners who want to become comfortable with box type surfaces before moving on to real boxes. Table Tops are very wide and therefore allow a skier or snowboarder to slide across the surface and is difficult to fall on.

Trees

Used as natural surfaces and can be found either on or off the trails. Rails and boxes have many different shapes and sizes: straight, sloped, curved (often called a “Rainbow”), or kinked. Rails, especially rainbow, will also be seen curving over obstacles or vehicles.

Park Bench & Picnic Tables

Many jib features resemble outdoor items used when snowboarding in urban areas, such as stair handrails, benches, tables, etc.

Box

Similar to a rail, but wider with an ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) surface. May or may not have metal edges.
