Family Orientation 2019 - Snowboard Presentations



Rules of the Sport

-Helmets must be worn whenever strapped in

-Follow the Colorado Skier Safety Act (know the code)


The rules are very open-ended in snowboarding and that’s what draws a lot of people to the sport.  On Team Summit we do have a structure to our training and programming to foster the creativity of the sport.  Creativity is what has lead snowboarders and snowboarding to be successful in all disciplines of snowboarding.
