Powder Ridge is the only ski area in Connecticut offering terrain-based learning techniques for all lessons.
The Ridge’s Terrain-Based Learning methods are not like a traditional lesson. In terrain-based learning students slide on a slope that has been groomed and shaped to provide students with a positive experience. Instead of teaching in a traditional sense, we develop the skills needed to become an all mountain skier or rider by playing with a coach on all of the different elements of our shaped terrain.
This revolutionary technique makes learning fun and extremely successful even for skiers and riders with some experience. Our group ski and board lessons are 90 minutes, not the traditional 1 hour.
