Squaw Snowboard Team

This program is designed for our younger athletes starting at age 7.  With the addition of the Mighty Riders our Snowboard program is designed to help young riders develop strong fundamental skills, learn to be part of a team, and gain a joy and passion for snowboarding. Coaches focus on progressive skill acquisition, knowledge of the code of conduct and safe riding, respect for the mountain, and having fun. Each participant will gain a solid foundation that will enable him or her to continue in one of Alpine's competitive snowboard programs, and will also have confidence and a life-long love of riding. Training includes park, big mountain, boarder cross, and half pipe. The Snowboard team is available to riders ages 7-18 as of December 31, 2014 and is offered on weekends and holidays.  Meeting locations at both Squaw and Alpine could change on a daily basis taking conditions and optimal training into account.  Riders should expect to train at both mountains.
