Junior Ability Snowboard

Junior Ability Snowboarding (ages 14 and younger)

This program is intended for riders who are looking for advanced snowboard training in a fun, recreational environment.  Participants will learn advanced freeride skills as well as riding techniques for giant slalom, slalom, halfpipe, slopestyle and snowboardcross. Junior riders are encouraged to participate in Steamboat Cup Series and/or limited USASA regional series. Competition is not required. Riders competing outside of the Steamboat Cup will need permission from their coaches. Dryland training is offered prior to getting on-snow. These sessions are optional, as we support children competing in other sports during the fall. Dryland sessions are focused on physical literacy, improving fitness, camaraderie and fun.
