Meet across the Skiway from the PayDay steps.
Developing Turns: Experience the fun and excitement of skiing or snowboarding with the ability to comfortably control your direction and speed. Snowboarders will be able to traverse on both edges of the snowboard and perform a "Falling Leaf." You'll also continue to develop the skills that allow you to consistently link turns.
Linking Turns: This is where the freedom of skiing or snowboarding begins. You'll explore more of the mountain and develop confidence on steeper terrain. You'll also learn more about controlling speed using different types of turns.
Green & Easy Blue Terrain: Once you're feeling confident that you can control your speed and location, it's time to start learning the more advanced techniques of turning. In this clinic, you'll ski or ride more of the mountain and be introduced to some of the gentler blue runs.

All summer I’ve been talking about exploring what happens after Shadow Lake, with fall in full swing, I decided it was now or never. After mapping together a group of trails that would give us several downhill thrills and only a few climbs, we drove to the top of Guardsman for a nine mile downhill, cross country ride.
Time to dig out the flip-flops, pull the cover off the grill and enjoy those lazy summer days. But if you think we're sitting back and putting our feet up during the dog days, think again. We open for summer on Friday, May 24 (just in time for Memorial Day Weekend) and we've got a couple new summer wrinkles in addition to our classic adventures.
