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 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.
All our alpine programs follow the LTAD program set out by Alpine Canada Alpin (ACA) and CSCF (Canada Ski coaches federation)
