Working on your method? Trying a hardway? If you understand these terms you are a million miles ahead of me! For someone who started skiing at the ripe old age of 40, I’m not entirely sure snowboarding is in my future. But I’m happy being a stick-in-the-mud, old-school, fuddy-duddy. I’ll leave the snowboarding to the cool kids. If your kids are begging to hit the terrain parks and nose press a rail, sign them up for a snowboarding lesson. Mt Seymour offers snowboard lessons for all skill levels. Whether it’s your first time on a board, or if you think you’ve got gnarly skills, the instructors will guide you to further greatness.

Mountain Riders (multi-day camps) – These fully supervised morning and afternoon camps give your child (aged 7 – 15 years) a chance to safely explore the mountain in a fun and social environment while learning to snowboard. Participants will ride the lifts without an adult. For skiers and snowboarders of all ability levels.
Day Riders (day camp) – These fully supervised full day camps offer the opportunity for your child (aged 8 – 15 years) to safely get to know the mountain, build solid skills and have a great time with a group of peers.

Park Riders (multi-day camps) – A fun, social introduction to free riding and the terrain park with a focus on safety and rider improvement.
