A program for ages 5-10 designed to help young riders develop skills, teamwork, & passion for snowboarding.

The Mighty Riders Snowboard program (for ages 5 -10) is designed to help young riders develop strong fundamental skills, learn to be part of a team, and gain joy and passion for snowboarding that will carry over to the older age groups. Coaches focus on progressive skill acquisition/development, aerial skills, knowledge of the snowboarder’s responsibility code and safe riding, respect for the mountain and having fun. Each participant will gain a solid snowboarding foundation that will enable him or her to continue with one of our competitive snowboard programs and will have confidence in variable and challenging terrain to help instill a life-long love of riding.

Team fees DO NOT include a season pass. Purchase of the Ikon Pass is required.
