Snowcross Academy

{tag_name_nolink}

New to Ski School this year is the Snowcross Academy. Boardercross/Ski Cross is fast becoming one of the largest disciplines in the sport. Combining elements from Freestyle and Super G racing, Snowcross has become a favorite with competitors and spectators alike and even introduced into the Olympics in 2006. The Snowcross Academy covers a wide variety of skills and techniques such as gate training, properly taking jumps and landing, and maintaining control and speed on varied terrain as well as some freestyle. This program is perfect for anyone who wants to get into Snowcross or just wants to become a better all around skier/snowboarder. Starting January 5th, the Snowcross Academy will run along side our Learn to Ride program.

The Snowcross Academy is open to both Skiers and Snowboarders age 7+, however participants must be advanced riders (level 6 or higher) to participate. Students in the Learn To Ride program may graduate into the Snowcross Academy without any additional cost.
