    Registration for next season is open, review our registration Q&A here.

    Riders ½ Day  is a super fun program for snowboard riders who have accomplished blue runs.  This is a ten-week half-day program on either Saturdays or Sundays.  There are AM or PM options each day.    

    This program follows Canada Snowboard’s “Riders Program ” pathway. Riders are placed into blue and black level groups before heading out.  The snowboarders in this program ride with trained Canada Snowboard coaches and focus on the basic skills needed for safety in slopestyle, jumps, boxes and rail features in the Terrain Park, freeriding, and SBX (Boarder Cross). Athletes will learn about the core skills of snowboarding and will be introduced to competition and how to warm up, cool down, and have fun.  

    Minimum skill level: riders must be able to load a chairlift unassisted AND must be able to confidently do toe and heel-edge turns on blue runs.

Participants, aged 8+ years of age, must be strong intermediate snowboarders and must be able to complete S turns using both heels and toe edge on a blue run, able to load and unload the chair lift independently and take care of their own equipment. 

    It focuses on all freestyle disciplines – slopestyle, jumps, rail features, freeriding, and SBX (Boarder Cross) and has been designed to offer young girls who already love to snowboard, the opportunity to participate and progress through the sport of freestyle in a fun, safe, and encouraging team environment.

Athletes in this program generally get an opportunity to compete in local and BC Snowboard provincial events.  This program will prepare athletes for a smooth transition to the Senior Dev team and beyond.
