Canada Snowboard – National Team Update

can snow

(ISN) – Given the start of the North American winter on the horizon, we thought it would be appropriate to provide you with a brief update on the current status of our National Teams.

Alpine: The women’s Alpine Team is currently gearing up for its first on-snow camp at Copper Mountain in Colorado. Women’s Alpine Coach Rob Roy will lead the ladies through their return to snow.

Slopestyle: The Slopestyle Team is currently taking part in its fall dryland camp in Whistler. They are capitalizing on the CSIP (Canadian Sport Institute Pacific) campus as well as the elite trampoline facilities in order to continue to build on the momentum gained from the AST (Australian Slopestyle Tour) stops.

Para-snowboard: The Para-snowboard Team just recently finished its first dryland training camp. With all the athletes now back at home, they are all working on progressing the strength and conditioning component of their training. Their first on-snow camp will take place later this fall under the supervision of Canada Snowboard High Performance Development Coach Mark Fawcett.

Snowboardcross: The Snowboardcross team was in Argentina for its first on-snow training camp of the season, which turned out to be a great success. They have now transitioned into dryland training for a good part of the month of October, after which they will head off to their second on-snow camp in mid November. Their first World Cup of the season will be in Montafon.
