What is included? Each participant will receive a Silver Star Club Jersey to advertise our valued sponsors. The program includes coaching by a trained Canada Snowboard Coach.
What does a Rider need to have? Riders MUST have their own ski pass, snowboard, snowboard boots, helmet, goggles, gloves and be dressed for the weather conditions.
Do you ever cancel sessions? We try our best to run classes every week as scheduled. In the event the temperature is -20 (or colder) with windchill we may cancel a session. In these cases the SS Freestyle will strive to make up missed sessions later in the season. This may not be possible in all cases. In the case of an "extraordinary" circumstance classes may be cancelled as well.
What if we are late? Usually a coach is available at the drop off area 15 minutes after the program starts to help your child join their group. You can also txt 250-550-5322 if you have connection issues.
