Snowboard Programs

AVSC offers a wide range of Snowboard Programs. We offer coaching support in multiple disciplines such as Halfpipe, Slope Style, Big Air, Slalom, Giant Slalom, Big Mountain and Snowboard Cross. Our younger athletes are encouraged to explore all disciplines while focusing on having fun and loving the sport. We encourage them to be well-rounded riders while building foundational skill sets. Our older athletes have the ability and freedom to choose their favorite discipline(s) and become a master of their craft. Whether your goal is an X Games podium and going to the Olympics, like AVSC alumni Chris Corning and Jake Canter, or you want to progress and learn new tricks in the safest ways possible, we have the program to fit your needs. Our staff is very knowledgeable and bring a variety of skills to the program.
