This team is for skiers and snowboarders who want to test out a structured coaching program. The purpose is to progress skills in all aspects of skiing/snowboarding while having fun and exploring the mountain. Members will train two set weekends per month and one week during the winter break. They will tackle all the terrain Bear has to offer, progressing toward parks and pipes. The coaches will set goals, whether to improve all-mountain riding or learn tricks in terrain parks and pipes, and work with the athletes all season long to achieve them. Competition is optional.
Riders should be able to link turns on green and easy blue terrain and want to progress their snowboarding. All riders must meet the minimum riding ability of the Team and display independence, such as being able to buckle their own bindings and meet at spots on runs designated by their coach. All new Team members must pass a skiing/snowboarding ability assessment with a coach prior to receiving their uniform and joining the group.
