2020/21 On-Snow Coached Programs

Welcome to the 2020/21 snowboard season. It’s going to be a year like no other! In consideration of COVID, on-snow session will now run 3 hours without a lunch break. The focus will be on staying active and healthy outside with shorter, more intensive skill development sessions. We have also added additional coached days to make up for the shorter sessions. Specific COVID protocols will be communicated before on-snow training begins and must be read, understood, followed and signed off by athletes/parents/guardians.

Check out the on-snow programming for Shredders and Comp Team below.

If you would like to discuss your snowboard training plans, please feel free to contact the Technical Director, mary@snowboardyukon.com.

On-Snow Program Fees Pandemic Refund Policy

For the 2020/21 season Snowboard Yukon (SY) will be offering a program fees refund if a program has been suspended due to COVID-19. If this occurs SY will provide a fees refund based on the remaining percentage of the program in progress to the participant. This refund will not cover interruptions to SY programs based on weather, or other non-COVID-19 related issues. The refund does not include membership fees.
