No doubt snowboarding is a dope high-impact sport attracting cool adventurous types from all over.
And yes, there are a lot of ways to learn to ride… Some self teach, learn from friends, or surf the web to pick up tips. These riders often learn to get down the slope and can develop a cool style. However, they can also pick up bad habits that cause extra injuries or prolong mastery of advanced skills & tricks. The best way to learn to ride is from a certified professional. With our Black Diamond Season Training Pass you’ll gain access to all three course levels: L1 RAW, L2 RIDER, & L3 RIPPER. All levels are taught by our AASI Level 3 Certified, Freestyle Accredited, and ACE 2 Certified (Accredited Children’s Educator.) instructor with 17 years of experience. Our courses build on each other and this all access pass ensures you’ll get the best training by cross-referencing each level with no gaps in your learning.
So get ready to study up riders!
