A new dinosaur-themed snowboard learning park will open Friday at Snowbasin resort near Ogden.
The Natural History Museum of Utah will attend the opening event from 9 a.m. to noon in front of the Snowsports Learning Center at the Grizzly Center, where the new park is located. Docents from the museum will offer young boarders facts and let them touch and see dinosaur bones.
The Burton Dinosaur Riglet Park is designed specifically for children as young as 3 to learn how to snowboard. It is located adjacent to Snowbasin Resort's Snowsports Learning Center.
"The dinosaur-themed Burton Riglet Park completely embodies the idea of creating an environment focused on fun and play to teach the youngest of kids to snowboard," said Jeff Boliba, Burton's vice president of Global Resorts.
