About

Yukon Champs

Well, it’s time for the 2022 YUKON CHAMPS…

One of our favourite snowboard events of the year! This TWO DAY event is open to our Shredders, Free Ride and Comp teams, friends, families and the general snowboarding public! We see riders of all ages and abilities come out for fun competition and riding!

HEY!! Have you heard about our FAM JAM Trophy?! It’s awarded at the end of the weekend to the family with the most points. Points are given for each competing family member each time they enter an event and then more points are added for medals earned throughout the weekend!
