I had an awesome snowboarding experience a few days ago – riding along with Team Utah Sundance! Team Utah Snowboarding has chapters all over the state, but the Sundance chapter is extra special since it’s my home mountain.
 
 
Sundance Mountain Resort works in tandem with Team Utah to provide a developmental program for youth age 10 to 18. Although small, this group is committed to learning new skills and progressing in the sport. These riders are already hitting jumps, riding boxes and working on spins, even though two are first year team members.
While riding with Coach Jordan Rehrer and his group I learned a wealth of information – how to ollie and nollie, on hill 180s and 270s, practicing boxes and jumps. It was challenging and tiring but so worth it.
Coach Jordan Rehrer trains with riders every Saturday and select Wednesdays throughout the season. He started snowboarding at Sundance Resort fifteen years ago, moving to coaching at age nineteen. His philosophy involves emphasis on form and fundamentals while riding according to conditions, whether that’s park tricks, powder lines or tree skiing.
 
 
These riders are learning new skills while preparing for the Team Utah banked slalom race in March, hosted by Sundance Mountain Resort. My day with the team inspired me – just in time for the X games and Olympics.
 
Go Team Sundance!
