This program includes weekly on-snow video sessions. Athletes will often be arranged in groups of 5-7 athletes per coach to facilitate a productive learning environment, groups are dynamic but are generally based on skill, speed, and social needs.

WE WANT YOU!

The Snowbasin Sport Education Foundation  is committed to a culture of family participation, team building, social gatherings while supporting our youth through winter sport development.

There will be many opportunities for parents to be involved with events and competitions (especially to work off your work deposit obligation).  We need help with races, freeride competitions, club fundraisers and individual team  activities such as coordination of team tents at races etc.

On the Calendar, our Ski & Snowboard Swap will be held October 28-30 and will be the first big event for the team! Sign ups to help are coming soon!

Following the Swap, the “Winter Welcome” will make it’s way back on the calendar after a year of COVID, and if you want to have a ton of fun, this event is for you!

We look forward to meeting all of you and hope you will join our Club!
