$99 for a Half-Day Wakeboarding Lesson and Riding Session ($209 Value)
Novice wakeboarders start their lessons on dry land mastering balance and positioning before taking to the wake during two 15-minute water sets. Instructors customize their lessons based on student ability and skill; the sessions last up to four hours and include riding time, a gear bag backpack, a t-shirt, and all gear, though wakeboarders can bring their own gear if preferred. Sessions also include the boat, driver, fuel, and a boat wrangler, should the boat escape. Check the calendar for time slots and reservations.
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.
