Youth Development

Boardriderz, ages 6-11

This program is designed to allow snowboarders to improve their overall snowboarding techniques and develop a solid foundation of skills. Boardriderz are broken into groups based on age and ability. Some groups will gradually work toward more difficult terrain while more experienced groups will explore powder, bumps, trees, steeps and freestyle. The importance of warming up, stretching, code of conduct and having fun are emphasized. Snowboarders are encouraged to participate in Community Jams.

  • Minimum riding requirement: Able to ride both edges comfortably on green terrain and working towards linking turns. Desire to have fun and learn new snowboard skills
  • Equipment requirements: Participants need snowboard equipment, and a helmet
  • Season pass information: Lift pass to Steamboat Ski Resort and Howelsen Hill
