Learn with your professional coach every week on Saturdays or Sundays

From foam pits and trampolines to jumps and jibs, come add something new to your bag of tricks! The Park Rats program is geared towards snowboarders and skiers interested in freestyle development and runs in 4 week increments. Meet each weekend (Saturdays or Sundays) with the same professional coach who will support your goals and develop your skills to ride like the pros! As a Park Rat you will spend half of your day in our indoor training facility, The Barn, and half on snow in our award-winning terrain parks. Each Park Rat walks away with a limited edition t-shirt, swag from our sponsors, as well as new friends and skills. Open to ages 6-18. View Rates, Dates & Info
