Teaching youth how to snowboard and safely enjoy the mountains, while being part of mentored groups that are guided by positive role models in our volunteer Team Leaders. Youth are taught to draw parallels from this learning experience to real-life situations and acquire important life skills while in the process of learning to ride a snowboard!  The Learn to Shred program is geared towards young people that have limited or no previous snowboarding experience.  Under the guidance provided by one of Big White's awesome snowboard instructors and the help of our volunteers, participants receive individualized feedback to help them progress through the learning process to where they can ride with confidence.  In addition to learning how to ride, participants are also exposed to many of the different job/career opportunities that a life in the mountains can offer to expand their horizons.  

This program is offered to young people free of charge for Elevation Outdoors believes that no youth should be denied the potential to discover an outdoor pursuit that can keep them motivated, healthy, and stoked on life for the rest of their days!
