Freeski & Snowboard - Shredders

Freeski & Snowboard Shredders

The Shredders Team is intended for our youngest athletes who want to develop a strong foundation in freeski and snowboard skills.  Fun, safety, and interpersonal communication are priorities for the Shredder Team athletes.  Training will focus on fundamentals in all-mountain freeriding and terrain park skills.  The Shredders training schedule is designed for athletes with at least two seasons of experience.  

USASA and IFSA certified Freeride Program Coaches will guide athletes through steeps, bumps, trees, powder, and terrain park features with an emphasis on safety, etiquette, and FUN!  Additionally, we do mid and end of season athlete evaluations based of the USSA's Developmental Matrix. **This is not a learn to ski / snowboard program.**
