Snowboard Team

Emphasis will be on fundamentals such as exploration, all-mountain riding, etiquette and sportsmanship. Coaches will provide an all mountain experience including hike-to areas and terrain park. The goal is for athletes to gain experience and build confidence in a fun, motivating environment that incorporates play, fun, basic agility, balance, coordination and development of endurance.. At least 90% of the time will be spent freeriding. Dryland gymnastic training is recommended.

Coach: Josh Johnson
