Smithers Ski Club

Snowboard Programs

WHAT PROGRAMS ARE AVAILABLE FOR RIDERS?

Smithers Ski and Snowboard Club has grown into a club with over 50 snowboard members! We welcome all ages 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 or her self.

With strong support from Hudson Bay Mountain through reduced pass rates, this entry level program is the ideal way to be introduced to a great sport. In our Little Riders snowboard program, 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 fun, safety and TEAM-work.  
Confidence, self-discipline, and pride grow through the camaraderie, friendly competition and the family environment in the club. It is an opportunity to build skills and 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.

Included in your club memberships is also the Canada Snowboard Federation Liability Insurance, that will cover the athletes during all scheduled training and events, including dryland.
Note that Program fees do NOT include HBM season pass.
