Children as young as 3 can participate in lessons for groups of two–four riders. Ski and snowboard season typically runs from the weekend after Thanksgiving through late March, dependent on the weather. Riders should print and fill out the release form before they attend in order to get on the slopes faster.
Raging Buffalo's adrenaline junkies have turned their athletic addiction into a successful enterprise by offering snowboarding and wakeboarding lessons to beginners and experienced riders. In the summer, their instructors take to the wake for lessons that start at the wakeboard school—open since 2001—before taking students on 15-minute riding sessions. When winter comes, the instructors dry-dock their boards in local bear caves and show students how to navigate the drifts with snowboard lessons at their ski park, which opened in 1992. Additionally, Raging Buffalo plays host to a variety of events, from rail jams to USASA competitions.
