For those new to snow sports who would rather learn at their own pace and on their own terms or those who are unsure if this is the right activity for them. Do not let your "friends" take you to the top of the mountain before you have the necessary skills! You will NOT have a good time! The ideal candidate would be a Level I skier or snowboarder who is purchasing a lift and rental package.
The Discover Zone is is an area dedicated to learning and progression, featuring Terrain Based Learning (TBL). TBL is a series of entry level terrain park features, sculpted out of snow and placed in a specific order to facilitate learning. A mini half pipe introduces the sensation of sliding on snow; banked turns allow you to turn left and right with minimal thought or effort; return walls control your speed to keep you, and others, safe.
On weekends and Holiday periods we will staff the Discover Zone with "coaches" at each of the features to give those going it alone helpful "tips". This makes learning easier and way more fun!
Located on the Jiminy Cricket slope, just behind the Doc Maynard Learn to Ski and Snowboard Center. Just follow the flags!
