Kick Start Snowboard X Academy: Ages 7-16

This 10-week program works on building and developing riders technical skills in a fun, safe, and recreational way!

Meant for those who are at the intermediate level who are riding the t-bar lift independently and looking to start getting confidence with speed and small/beginner jumps.

The program focuses on technical skiing and race discipline at a grassroots level. Using brush-gate training, increasing participants’ comfort with speed, contoured grooming (banked turns, rollers, wu-tangs), and small jumps (with minimal airtime), participants improve their adaptability on snow in a fun, team environment.

Canyon’s Snowboard X Academy ends its season with a fun Ski/Snowboard X Race hosted at Canyon for the program participants!

All registrants must be at an intermediate level or higher and must be able to ride the T-Bar and Chair Lift independently.
