Shawnee Mountain IMPROVEMENTS FOCUS ON CHILDREN’S PROGRAMS

Shawnee on Delaware, PA- Family and beginner friendly Shawnee Mountain is pleased to announce several improvements to enhance its popular children’s Learn to Ski and Snowboard programs for the coming 2012-13 winter snow sports season.

 

 

Snowmaking Upgrades

It all starts with dependable snow and on Shawnee’s learning center slope, home to over 6,000 children’s ski and snowboard lessons annually, new airless snow guns have been added. The new energy efficient fan guns promise all Shawnee beginners more consistent snow depth throughout the season enabling contoured nightly grooming to optimize learning.

 

New WEEriders program

Adding to the impressive mix of Shawnee children’s ski and snowboard programs which include it’s nationally recognized SKIwee, Mountain Cruisers and Young Riders programs is the all new WEEriders. Developed for ages 4, 5, and 6, this beginner snowboard program will be offered daily in 2 hour sessions and limited to 4 students per class. Each class will have two children’s snowboarding instruction specialists. Shawnee Children’s Program Director, Robin Manfredi, comments, ‘We developed the new WEEriders as a result of parents demand to introduce their children to snowboarding at ages younger than 7 which is the starting age of our existing Young Riders program. Last season, after securing smaller snowboard rental equipment and doing some test lessons, we settled on offering the 2 hour sessions with the two instructors to 4 students ratio having produced the best results”. Cost for WEEriders is $75 per child per session and includes complete snowboard rental. Reservations are required.

 

Online Reservation Improvements

Several programming changes have been made to the Shawnee Children’s Program online reservation system for 2012-13 which promises parents an easier online reservation process as well as more accurate presetting of children’s ski and snowboard rentals.

 

Shawnee Mountain is located in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania just off Exit 309 of Interstate 80. General information call 570-421-7231. For lodging information, call 888-VILLA4U (townhomes and chateaus), 800-SHAWNEE (Shawnee Inn), or 800-POCONOS (visitors bureau). Or visit Shawnee Mountain on-line at www.shawneemt.com.
