Vancouver Island’s first freestyle snowboard club is getting ready to embrace another amazing season at the Mt. Washington training venue.
VI Riders is a non- profit society that supports emerging snowboard athletes in the elements of freestyle snowboarding. “Our athletes travel to Mt. Washington from across the Island on a weekly basis to train with certified coaches in a safe and fun environment,” a club spokesperson said. “We have experienced a growing number of female athletes joining the club in the last few years and we have become a much more diverse group with a range of ability from competent development riders to competitive riders.
“VI Riders has provided many keen snowboard athletes an opportunity to take their skills to the next level and as a result, our Island athletes are making quite an impression provincially and nationally,” the spokesperson said.
VI Riders will be offering an earlybird registration discount up to Nov. 15. For more information and registration details check out the website www.viriders.org or call Dave and Kelsa Donald at 250-923-0523.
