The mat provides visual learning cues for movements such as sidestepping up a hill, sliding skis in a straight line, herringbone or “duck walk” steps up a hill, downhill parallel to pizza to teach “stop” and “go,” and more. The mats are made from a poly mesh fabric and have Velcro on one side to hold them in place on carpets. The mats also come with snow stakes for outside use. “The learning mat has worked great for us indoors on the carpet … to show the little ones how to position their skis before they go out on the snow,” says Steamboat’s kid’s vacation center manager, Lenny McNeill. The mats can be customized with logos, colors, and mascots.
