Adventure Ski & Snowboard School helps skiers and snowboarders hone their mountain-shredding skills far away from snow-capped peaks with a rolling-carpet ski machine. Similar to a treadmill, the machine simulates the smooth, slippery surface of a powder-dusted slope, allowing riders to practice balancing and controlled carving. As guests glide over the endless slope, a padded, waist-high horizontal bar offers them a safety net when they attempt unfamiliar techniques, cheered on by one of the school's seasoned instructors.
Adventure Ski & Snowboard School is a member of both the Professional Ski Instructors of America and the American Association of Snowboard Instructors, a testament to their off-slope training methods, much like the frequent attempts of abominable snowmen to infiltrate their facility.
