Unlike when I was growing up, today’s youth have no conception of the way it used to be — that when ski season was over, so too was any reason to drive back to the ski resort until the snow started to fly again. Boy has that changed in the past 15 years.
Nowadays, a New England ski resort that isn’t offering fun and adventure for all four seasons is working hard to do so. Mountain resorts are going to great lengths to continually introduce a wide variety of activities and adventures that appeal to everyone in the family. Below is a sampling of some of the new and popular adventures you’ll find when you make the worthwhile trip into the mountains this summer.
The Woodward WreckTangle, an outdoor ninja obstacle challenge, is a new feature this summer at Killington’s Adventure Center. The outdoor ninja course was first introduced by Woodward at the base of Copper Mountain, Colo., last summer and features nine different sections of unique obstacles, including cargo nets, balance beams, rope swings and more.
The WreckTangle is designed to test athleticism, agility and amusement in both kids and adults, appealing to youth lifestyle and action sports experiences like skateboarding, parkour, gymnastics, skiing and snowboarding.
