THE VI RIDERS are ready for another high-flying season of thrills in the hills.

VI Riders ready to roll

Freestyle snowboard club looking forward to new season of thrills on hills

VI Riders is Vancouver Island’s only non-profit freestyle snowboard club for kids ages 10 to 18. We meet every Saturday for a full day of riding from January through March at Mount Washington Alpine Resort. Joining the club is a great way to meet other riders, learn new tricks and gain confidence in the terrain parks.

Although it’s not mandatory, our members are encouraged to take part in local competitions. The focus is on having fun and building self-confidence through personal success. Several snowboard competitions are scheduled to take place at Mount Washington this winter:

BC Snowboard Provincial Series Slopestyle: Jan. 10-12. The event will begin on the evening of Jan. 10 with a Canada Snowboard Officials/Judging Course (open to everyone ages 16 and up), followed by a slopestyle competition on Jan. 11-12.

• C-S Riders: Feb. 16. A Canada Snowboard event designed to introduce participants to competitive snowboarding through a fun, athlete-centred competition.

• Dakine Slopestyle Competition: March 15.

• Spring Rail Jam: March 29-30.
