Any trick, turn, or maneuver on a snowboard can be broken down and explained through fundamental skills, and the better we understand these skills the more efficiently we’ll ride. Through in-depth examination of the 6 snowboard fundamentals, on snow movement analysis, and detailed off snow video analysis, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of how subtle body movements relate to snowboarding outcomes in a big way. By the end of the session you’ll be better prepared to make thoughtful adjustments to your own riding, leading to less repeat injuries, more progression, and ultimately more FUN!

Coaches for this event will be:

Chris Hargrave – Former AASI National Team Member, Olympic Halfpipe Pipe Coach, and all around genius.
Stephanie Wilkerson – AASI National Team Member, AASI-W Ed Staff, and basically one of the best female riders on the planet
Joshua Thompson-Bourrie – Head Coach and Founder of Progression Sessions, AASI-W Head Trainer/Examiner, and the guy responsible for writing this overview.

We scheduled this event in May to take advantage of the Northwest’s best “Second Winter” destination. When most ski areas are pairing down or switching off, Timberline is actually expanding their operations hosting; 4+ terrain parks (including a halfpipe); 4,500 vertical ft. of lift driven sliding from the top of Palmer to our Lodge, wide open groomers, and plentiful backcountry opportunities above and beyond the lifts.

The adventure doesn’t stop when we leave the mountain, every evening we’ll host an optional activity; waterfall hike, movement analysis sessions, restorative stretching, etc. or if you prefer you can spend the afternoon relaxing in one of our on site hot tubs.

Day 1, Monday, Arrival Day

Arrive at PDX by 4pm, or Government Camp by 5:30pm. We’ll get moved in and have a leisurely dinner at our lodge where we’ll discuss the week ahead get to know one another and make any equipment modifications for the next days adventure.

Day 2, Tuesday, Fundamentals and Exploration

You’ll spend the day with your group, getting to know the lay of the land while gaining a fresh perspective on your personal technique. Through a variety of tasks we’ll explore the 6 fundamentals of snowboarding. We’ll then capture video of your riding and together we’ll use the 6 fundamentals to isolate essential skill development to align your snowboarding goals with a clear direction for progression. When the lifts stop turning we’ll head back to our lodge where you’ll have a chance to relax and wax up your equipment, before we’re off to dinner and drinks in town!

Day 3, Wednesday, Creative Carving

Wednesdays are usually empty on the mountain, that means wide open opportunities to take your carved turns to the next level, in this clinic we’ll explore a variety of techniques to lay down perfect lines, then we’ll take our newfound skills to less conventional applications. We’ll capture more video on snow so we can take an analytical look at your style back at our lodge.

Day 4, Thursday, Off-Piste

The mountain is prime with natural opportunities to apply your new found skills. In this clinic we’ll take a mindful approach to expanding you’re skill set off the groomed. Whether your new to variable conditions, or you only eat granola and ride in the trees this session will have something for you. For the adventurous you’ll have the option to forgo the car ride down the mountain and we’ll ride the 3 miles back to town instead, by way of the Alpine or Glade trails. After riding we’ll host an optional hike to Tamanawas Falls, followed by dinner and game night at our lodge.

Day 5, Friday, Make it your own

This day is all about you and your personal goals, wherever, and whatever you want to ride is the focus. This day coaches will make sure highlight essential drills and pathways for progression so next time you go snowboarding you’ll be able to start right where you left off and keep building. We’ll follow up our final day on the mountain with a celebration worthy of our efforts.

Day 6, Saturday, Departure Day

All good things must come to an end (at least a temporary one). Departing flights must be scheduled after 9am. Coaches will make sure you are at the Airport at least 90min minutes before your flight departs.
