Does anyone know of a foam pit for skiing close or at least with in driving distance from Boston?

Foam pit? Sounds like something for gymnastics?

The only reference I've found for one for skiing is at Woodward near Copper, special facility.

Woodward Tahoe has a foam pit. I am sure Woodward pa has one but not sure if it is set up for skiing.

Woodward (tm) named after the town of Woodward Pa. where it started mainly for gymnastics..

 

The Facility at Copper just had a rebuild using new tech 'wheeled' skis and snowboards.

Send your kids to camp woodward next summer.  Get them out of the house.  They will kick and scream all the way home.

Ski Ward in Shrewsbury MA has a Big Air Bag opening the 18th of Sep.  That's the closest thing to a foam pit that i know of around  here.  They also have summer rails/boxes.

Windham in NY has a Big Air Bag setup.  I think its only open in the winter though.  Looks pretty cool.

I've seen ads for clinics up at Lake Placid through PSIA.  I know they have a water pool setup, not sure if they also have a foam pit.

 

Not aware of anything right around Boston, but I also haven't looked specifically for it.

 

You might also look for a trampoline gym.  Not going to be as skiing-specific, but if you want to work on flips/spins/body sense, there's probably a lot of skill crossover.

There's a large Air Bag at the base of a big carpeted jump at Snows Mountain - Waterville Valley NH. Operated by the BBTS freestyle folks. It's in use daily by future Olympians.
