GRAND HAVEN, Mich. (WZZM)- The grand opening of the miniSHRED Snowboard Park at Mulligan's Hollow Ski Bowl happens on Saturday from 11 a.m.-2 p.m.
MACkite, with support from Mulligan's Hollow and ROME SDS Snowboards, has built a mini park at the base of the Ski Bowl for the sole purpose of teaching little 2 - 6-year-olds how to snowboard, and also to introduce low impact/pressure terrain style riding for young children.
With the help of the Mulligan's Hollow instructors & based on their availability a free 20-minute intro to snowboarding session in the park will be offered for children under the age of 6. The use of four 90cm Rome SDS Mini Shred Snowboards are available free of charge for small children ages 2-6 who want to learn to snowboard.
The all-new miniSHRED park features an unintimidating three to four foot change in the elevation of the slope, allowing little ones to learn to snowboard and ski in a safe and controlled environment. The park will also host low-level boxes and rails and mini jumps to help introduce these new shredders to terrain style riding.
