Program


The Sundance Snowboard Team is a developmental program working in conjunction with the statewide team of “Team Utah”. The Sundance team is designed to teach young athletes the fundamentals of freeriding and freestyle at a competition level. A portion of training time will be in the Sundance Terrain Park, the other training time will be spent riding different sections of the mountain. Athletes will ride and train on moderate and advanced terrain to learn the essentials and build confidence. More challenging terrain and features will be used strategically to help the athletes boost their skill level and develop their comfort zones.



Skill Level


As a minimum, riders must be aggressive and confident on most terrain. Riders should be comfortable on “blue” terrain and wanting to start riding “black” terrain. Participants should also have a desire to ride small to medium terrain features.


Requirements

  • Athletes must currently be 10 years or older, or pass a skills test.
  • Athletes must be a Team Utah Member (for insurance coverage). Membership dues are included in team fee.
