Snowboarding

Gone are the days where snowboarders just carve the hill like a skier.  Freestyle snowboarding, where snowboarders ride through terrain parks like a skateboarder at a skate park, is the next generation of snowboarding.  Not sure what this looks like?  Check out this Youtube video of some local snowboarders at the Ranch, Brandon's newest and closest snowboard terrain park.

 

 

So You are Interested in Freestyle Snowboarding...Here's Where You Can Do it!

 

Brandon Snowboard Club's "The Ranch"  :

 

Located 4km west of Brandon on Grand Valley road, the Ranch is super close to the Wheat City.

I had an opportunity to chat with Jordan Ross, member of the Brandon Snowboard Club.  He provided me with some pictures of some of the members along with details about the club.

There are three programs to gain access to the Ranch: the Shredders Program, the Learn to Ride Program and Regular Membership.  Geared to experienced 10 to 15 year-olds, the Shredders program is either offered twice per week for three weeks (for a total of six nights) or once per week for six weeks.  See details below.
