NEW FOR 2016/17: A Magic Carpet

Our Magic Carpet has Arrived!

We are delighted to introduce a “magic carpet” to the skill hill this year.

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.

Trail Map

Terrain Park

Here are some of the jibs you may find at our park:

Over 35 different elements used in park designs. Jibs are any type of fixture which can be ridden with the board/skis either parallel or perpendicular to the snow surface, ridden while spinning around on, or ridden and jumped or tricked from. Many jib features resemble outdoor items used when snowboarding in urban areas, such as stair handrails, benches, tables, etc. In the park these features consist of:

  • 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.

  • Box

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

  • 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.
