THEY'LL EARN THE OFFICIAL PATCH
Nothing says "you're a rock star" more than the official Adventure Academy badge. Your child will earn a patch they can show off to their friends.
Your child will have the luxury of skipping the hike up to the start of the slope by taking one of the 4 moving carpets offered with access to 5 acres of terrain dedicated to kids.
Each child will be assigned a cubbie for them to store their shoes, jackets, and gift bags while they are taking the lessons.
BURTON RIGLET MAT
If your child is planning on learning how to snowboard, they will have the option to participate in a game where they will stand on the Burton Riglet Mat containing snowboard symbols on it. They will roll the dice, bend, and grab at the corresponding number on the mat to simulate different “moves.”
This will allow your child to practice some moves before they step on the snow.
