Husband, Brother in law, and I went to Air boarding class, all late 30's, with the instructor named Sanford. There was a total of 5 students in group. The class was 1 hour in length, and the 2nd hour was on your own. This instructor was incredible. Very informative, patient, outgoing, and overall took the time with each and every student. At times I was hesitant and the instructor was encouraging, when I had difficulty understanding a certain procedure, he was very quick to explain, and reexplain if necessary. It was his great attitude that made this experience so awesome.
We later took our children tubing, their ages were 4 to 10. All the employees were extremely friendly and children, and adult’s had a great time. The only set back is the tubing park is only four lanes. It would be great to see it be larger.
The following day we went back for the facelevel air boarding contest. We went to the midway station. Our children hung out and played in the snow while we watched the races. Everyone was extremely friendly and happy to see spectators .Races were great, and we were happy to see our instructor, Sanford doing so well in the races. Everyone from Facelevel were outgoing and thanked our group for coming to the races. We will be back for the 2nd part of air boarding class, and we will be asking for Sanford. CANAAN REALLY NEEDS TO GIVE THIS MAN A RAISE!
