Cisco Riders and Bombers Riders
Our Beginner ‘Rider’ (Snowboard) Programs coincide with our Cisco Kids and Boreal Bomber Alpine Skiing Programs. ASC Training Center offers specific skills and training for Snowboarders although the schedule and pricing structure is the same as our Alpine programs. ASC Training Center just requires that your athletes have had a few days on their snowboard and are comfortable getting on and off a chairlift.
These two entry level programs provide a wonderful introductory experience to winter sports for the whole family. Skiers and snowboarders as young as age 6 and up to age 13 are welcome. The team focus is on quickly building skills, learning a little about racing and learning to enjoy the mountain playground. Our young athletes are divided by age and skill level into small groups with a coach and parent helpers. If there is one word to describe what these kids do on the mountain it’s ski-ski-ski and ride-ride-ride. The teams are always on the move around the mountain and always having a blast.
The program is not a learn to ski/snowboard program. Cisco Kids/Cisco Riders must have already skied or snowboarded a few times and have ridden a chair lift. Boreal Bombers and Bombers Riders must be able to link stem turns the length of a slope. Teaching young kids to ski and snowboard is a “gift” and the fundamental goal of this program. Graduates from these teams progress into the All-Mt. Devo or Snowboard teams.
Training days are weekends (mostly Saturday’s) on a pre-set schedule spread over the season from December through March. Boreal Bombers and Bombers Riders will ski/ride at Sugar Bowl a few selected days with discounted tickets. Auburn Ski Club Associates family membership is included in team dues. Families with 2 or more team members receive a $60 discount off second+ child team dues.
