  • Mini Mountain
    Mini Mountain helps people of all ages experience the thrill of outdoor extreme sports, even if they can't be outside. Thanks to the training center's unique downhill treadmill-like machine, visitors can ski and snowboard year-round?they just happen to be indoors. The wide, sloping treadmill features a smooth surface and runs on a perpetual uphill loop, mimicking the sensation of gliding down a snowy slope. Private lessons help students master their maneuvers and turns, relying on guidance from professional instructors and the same rental gear they'd use on real slopes. But the students sometimes still venture outdoors?those who complete enough indoor work are eligible to join the small-group skiing lessons that explore the Summit at Snoqualmie. And rock-climbing day camps travel to various nearby cliffs, so students can work on improving their climbing skills and beating mountain goats at staring contests.
