Snowboarding is a lifelong sport; there is always more to learn. Basic technique is always evolving, and the concepts and skills we discuss and demonstrate with the athletes are a constant work in progress. Our athletes strive for lofty goals in a team atmosphere, building on the momentum, enthusiasm and support of each other.
