The 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 from the sport rider to the competitive rider . Coaches focus on progressive skill acquisition/development, knowledge of the snowboarder’s responsibility code 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 with one of our competitive snowboard programs and will also have confidence and a life-long love of riding. Training includes: Big Mountain, Boarder Cross, and Park & Pipe. Riders should expect to train at both Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows. Our competitive team along with our coaches will travel to local and national events to represent our team. Team fees DO NOT include a season pass. Purchase of the Ikon Pass is required.
