Sports: Burton Riglet Park at Smugglers' Notch

The next best thing to fresh powder? Breaking in a new snowboard park designed especially for kids. Burton Riglet Park is named for the retractable cord that can be fitted to Burton boards to allow instructors to guide and assist up-and-coming Jake Burtons. The approximately 60-by-80-foot outdoor play space features box-style rails, pyramids and a mini half-pipe. From the park's 15-by-20-foot tree house, kids can slide down ramps, practice catching a lift chair or take a break from the grueling course work at Smugglers' Notch Resort's Snow Sports University. "I'm ecstatic about this project," says snowboard supervisor Mike Chait. "I can't wait." Smuggs is working with Burton on the park's design. A pilot project last winter gave the designers all the info they needed. "Kids loved it," says Chait.
