The program's goal is to provide the best initial snowboarding experience to beginners so they make return visits to the mountain to snowboard again. And that is accomplished by using tools - LTR and Cruzer boards and Foundation SI boots and binding systems - and teaching techniques that were developed specifically to make learning easy and fun. The Learn-to-Ride program has gone global with centers just about everywhere on the snowsports planet, but can be found locally at the Big Bear Mountain Resorts, Diamond Peak, Kirkwood, Mt. Bachelor, Northstar, Sierra-at-Tahoe and Timberline.
