Kids 5 & Under

Powder Ridge is know as the place for kids to learn to ski in Southern New England, and specialize in working with kids who are 3 to 5-years-old. We have special Burton Riglet Park experiences for our 3 to 5-year-old adventure enthusiasts. For kids brand-new to the snow, we have an experience program that keeps kids in the Burton Riglet Park with their instructors. More advanced kids can join a group sport lesson that includes a lift ticket and rental gear if needed.

Burton Riglet Park

It’s never too early! The Burton Riglet Park at Powder Ridge Mountain Park & Resort really is a different way of learning to snowboard and part of our Experience Training program. It’s the way to bring young riders into the sport. This is a safe and fun learning environment for kids, and it really doesn’t get any better!

The environment created by the Riglet Rark at Powder Ridge is magic and it’s been said that it’s safe, it’s fun, and it’s working. Our coaches and families are finding great success getting kids on snowboards as soon as they can maintain a little balance. Please register for equipment rental prior to arrival Equipment rental

Lessons are custom tailored to your ability. A knowledgeable coach works with you at your own pace to meet your personal goals. For more advanced skiers and riders our coaches work with you to develop progressions to help you meet your goals. Whether that means exploring the terrain parks, venturing into racing or just refining all mountain skills to help prepare them for their trip up north or out west, we have the coaches and the terrain to deliver a fun and challenging experience.

Lesson Times – Monday through Friday at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Saturday and Sunday on the half hour or by reservation. We strongly suggest making reservations in advance.
