Snowboarding

PCSS Snowboard offers the following summer programs.

Skateboard Programs

Snowboarding has been inspired by skateboarding since its inception. Our summer skate program is designed with that in mind. With guidance from our staff, athletes of all abilities have a place in this program.  This year we will have two options for skate camp: First Drops, and Sk8 Camp. First Drops is a beginner only session while Sk8 camp is designed for those already familiar with skating.

First Drops is a 4-day weekly program that focuses on skill development in a familiar setting where riders are able to show up everyday and know exactly what features are present. This program provides great opportunities to perfect the basics and build from one day to the next. First Drops is built for new and beginner skaters.
