Sport: Smugglers' Notch gets toddlers on snowboards

Learning to snowboard can be painful, but it doesn't have to be. A new pilot program called Little Rascals on Snow...boards at the Treasures Child Care Center at Smugglers' Notch introduces toddlers as young as 18 months to the basics of shredding in a safe, indoor environment. To get a feel for the sport, kids play with foam boards and mimic common riding movements, such as bending at the knees, with hula-hoops. "We want these children to learn the fundamentals of snowboarding without... bundling up for the snow and taking a hard fall," says snowboard program supervisor Michael Chait, who hopes to instill in his students a lifelong love of riding. "We want their first encounter with a snowboard to be a positive one."
