Ages 10-17

Advanced Intermediate

The Core Snowboard Team emphasizes having fun through a safe progression of fundamental skills and tricks. This program is open to children from ages 10 to 17. Athletes must be advanced intermediate riders who want to learn to shred.  Riders should be able to comfortably ride the entire mountain, including black diamond trails. Riders do not need to know how to jump, although they should have a desire to learn.

The Snowboard Team works on developing skills on the snow (carving, riding powder, riding in glades), in the air, , and on park features . We use the whole mountain as our playground and will actively take advantage of a powder day when we are blessed to have one.  We use our on-site trampoline to safely learn new tricks before taking them to snow and have built in video analysis time to help athletes learn. It is NOT necessary to compete to be a part of this program, but coaches will work with riders who want to compete and help them set and achieve performance goals . It is our belief that through competition we learn more about ourselves and often are motivated to excel.

Coaches and riders who choose to compete will be encouraged to participate in 3 USASA events. A USASA membership will be required to participate.
