It's an old maxim that the best way to become a good skier or snowboarder is to start early in life, and go often. Shredder Ski & Snowboard Gym takes it one step further: practice even when there isn't snow on the ground. The gym's ski instructors invite youngsters to strap on their ski or snowboard boots and plow down the carpeted indoor slope, available even when the resorts are closed or snowy roofs are still littered with Christmas decorations. As kids learn fundamentals and conquer the oft-frustrating early learning curve, the budding denizens of the black diamond build healthy traits such as endurance, balance, and strength. Kids up to 12 years old participate in a variety of programs from private lessons to summer camps, while parents can join in the action at Yeti School, structured for kids age 10 months to 3 years.

As the world's only indoor velodrome and mountain bike park, Boulder Indoor Cycling has netted considerable press attention along with a member base of passionate pedalers. An open-to-the-public mezzanine level overlooks the 142-meter track, whose corners tilt at a visually confounding 45-degree angle. First-timers can veer down the course at a moderate pace while advanced bikers gun for competition-level speeds, eyeing the current lap record of 7.690 seconds set by 2006 U.S. National Track Champion Kevin Selker. The velodrome track also encircles a mountain bike playground of wood platforms meant to mirror outdoor obstacles, such as log bridges, rock piles, and sleeping gnomes that send cycles careening over uneven terrain. Professional athletes and national champions comprise BIC's elite staff of cycling coaches. Both on the track and across the park planks, their classes acclimate cyclists of all ages to several tiers of biking techniques. Children ages 2–10 years can pilot a mountain bike without ever relying on training wheels or indebted wind gods during CycleTykes sessions. Youth programs, track cycling seminars, and adult race leagues also permit members to saddle up and whiz by at their preferred pace.
