Treetops Resort Announces NEW Terrain Based Learning Program the First to be Offered in Michigan and Second in the Midwest 

(Gaylord, MI) – Winter is coming and Michigan’s Most Family Friendly Resort is ready. Treetops Resort will be the first resort in Michigan to offer a new Terrain Based Learning program for the 2016-2017 winter season.

“Treetops is thrilled to announce the addition of a “Terrain Based Learning” program for first time skiers and snowboarders. This program is designed to radically improve the experience for first timers. This revolutionary program offers beginner ski and snowboard lessons in the safest environment for first timers in addition to giving instructors the best opportunity to connect with their students,” says Barry Owens, General Manager of Treetops. Terrain Based Learning was developed by SNOW Operating. This program uses purpose-built snow features such as banked turns and a mini pipe to help assist students by naturally controlling their speed when first learning to ski and snowboard. Resorts that have adopted this method of teaching have found extreme success with the interactive style of teaching. Learning how to ski and snowboard should be fun so each stage is developed to set students up for success by keeping them “going” instead of stopping. This program is for students of all ages and will help build a lifelong love of the winter season in Pure Michigan.
