Crotched Mountain's Discovery Program uses "Terrain Based Teaching" to develop and reinforce skiing and riding skills. A way to learn that provides more experiential learning, more success, and definitely more fun.

THE SCIENCE BEHIND TERRAIN BASED TEACHING 

  • •Flats, to help balance and get in and out of equipment. 
  • •Mini Pipes, to help begin to slide without fear to learn to turn and stop.
  • •Rollers, which foster trust in the equipment, and balancing. 
  • •Banked turns, introducing turns and reinforcing the same goals as rollers
  • Perfect slope, which puts it all together, adding the thrill of linked turns
