Nearly three decades after the installation of the first alpine slide in New England, a similar new attraction debuted. Users ride plastic sleds up the mountain (towed by a cable under the track), then descend on a tubular steel track. The design is considered safer than alpine slides and allows for the coaster to operate year round.

Jiminy Peak installed New England's first mountain coaster in 2006. Its success led to ski areas in Vermont and New Hampshire installing their own mountain coasters a few years later.
