Team Overview

This is a group that is ready to take the skills developed through the Mini Shreds to the larger snowboarding stage.

The team will focus on all aspects of riding including park, pipe, rails, cross riding, and freeriding. The reason is simple, we aspire to create the best all-around riders while continuing to develop each rider’s unique style!

Our professional coaching staff will work with Shred Ready athletes to continue to develop their skills in preparation for competitions and events. This will start during fall dryland where athletes have access to our Air Barn facility and strength training. Air Barn sessions will continue through the winter along with Wednesday workshops to set the tone and goals for the week. On-snow training will utilize the different venues the Wood River Valley has to offer (Baldy/Dollar/Rotarun), as conditions dictate, to continue to develop well-rounded riders that are event and travel ready.

USASA, USSA, and Community and Industry supported snowboard event options are all on the table depending on the rider’s abilities and qualifications. On and off-snow training trips will be offered throughout the year. There are many paths in snowboarding and through this team riders will have the opportunities to explore these events!
