Snowboard Programs

RIDERS 2016!

Smithers Ski and Snowboard Club has grown into a club with 40 riders in 4 years!

For 2016, based on feedback from YOU, we'll offer two different programs within the U6 - 10 program; a "Casual group" and a "Competitive Group"

We welcome ages from 5-16+ and almost all levels of riding. The only requirement for the riders is that the athletes MUST be able to ride the T-bar by him/herself.

With strong support from Hudson Bay Mountain through reduced pass rates, our U6-10 entry level program is the ideal way to be introduced to a great sport.

Our club focus is on Canada Snowboards (CSF) Long Term Athletic Development LTAD. Riders will be introduced to basic riding techniques and skills, develop the ABCS (agility, balance, coordination, strength/speed) in as many different snow conditions and on as much varied terrain as possible, including free riding, gate training, Snowboard-X and Slopestyle.

The program philosophy is to encourage participation, interaction, and the development of riding skills in an environment that promotes health, fun, safety and TEAM-work.  
Confidence, self-discipline, and pride grow through the camaraderie, friendly competition and the family environment within the club. It is an opportunity to build skills and to develop relationships that will last a lifetime! 
As the athletes grow older, we'll increase the skills and also make them more involved in the club regarding equipment, fitness and even coaching courses for the ones that are interested.

Program fees do NOT include HBM season pass.
