Formerly snowboarder-exclusive but now also open to skiers, Raging Buffalo Snowboard Ski Park’s strictly terrain layout challenges riders of all skill levels to hone their tricks. An all-day or half-day lift ticket nets snow-goers full access to a repertoire of halfpipes, rails, and tabletops for stringing together a series of backflips or knitting a scarf during a tail grab. The terrain changes multiple times throughout the season. Patrons can click here for an idea of past park layouts. Beginning boarders combine lift tickets with snowboard rentals and semiprivate lessons. All ages and abilities grab a rental snowboard with step-in bindings, boots, and a helmet from the front counter before reporting to the mountain. During the one-hour lesson, slope-savvy instructors instill two students with such snowboarding fundamentals as carving, stopping, and outrunning sentient snowmen.

Raging Buffalo

Started in 1993 as a refuge for snowboarders who felt unappreciated by more ski-focused slopes, Raging Buffalo has grown into a popular haven for all sorts of shredders, both in the winter and summer months. In warm weather, seasoned instructors pull wakeboarders of all ages and experience levels down the Fox River, teaching students tricks ranging from jumps to emergency bathing-suit retrieval. When the water gets a bit firmer in the winter, the Raging Buffalo Snowboard Ski Park opens for business. The park, built for boarders but open to skiers, boasts a variety of runs and features such as halfpipes and rails. No matter the season, the park plays host to a variety of events all year, from rail jams to USASA competitions.
