FREE Outdoor Burton Riglet Park on Snow
Visit ECHO’s Hoehl Park on the south side of the aquarium and walk into a winter wonderland from 10 am to 2 pm! The lawn will be converted into a Burton Riglet Park thanks to Smugglers’ Notch! This is for three to eight year-old children, the youngest future snowboarders, to enjoy as they learn to maneuver and navigate snowboard park features through play and guided discovery. Representatives from Burton and Smugglers Notch will be on hand to enhance the outdoor Burton Riglet Park experience. This is on a first-come-first-served basis. Dress for the weather!
Each participant will receive a certificate of participation (valid for free admission into ECHO for the participating child and $2 off each admission for others in his/her party) and other special incentives to encourage visiting a few of Vermont’s finest ski resorts this winter.
