Snowboarding Development (ages 8-12)

The Snowboard Development athletes ride all day (9:00 am - 2:30 pm) with a coach. Snowboard Development will be held for 10 consecutive Saturdays starting, January 3, 2015. The program will provide an all mountain experience. The program will focus on developing all around snowboard skills on the mountain, in our terrain parks and on the NASTAR race course. The athletes will have the opportunity to compete in events in the terrain parks. All athletes are required to have intermediate skills as a minimum requirement. Mount Sunapee and USSA require that all athletes wear helmets with hard earflaps.

The Development Challenge- December 27, 2014

Again this year, we will host the Development Challenge. The Challenge is required for all athletes in all of the Development Programs. The Challenge is to ensure that everyone has the skills and ability to flourish in the programs. The Challenge will be held on Saturday, December 27, 2014 at 9:30 am - 12:00 pm. Please meet at our Alpine Competition building for an informational meeting.

No volunteer commitment is required for the Development Programs, but volunteer help is always encouraged. There is no requirement for a USSA or NHARA membership because racing will be limited to NASTAR.

The Program Coordinator reserves the right to refund the fee if the athlete’s skills are not strong enough.
