Vancouver Island’s first freestyle snowboard club is ready to embrace another season at the Mt. Washington training venue

Vancouver Island’s first freestyle snowboard club is ready to embrace another season at the Mt. Washington training venue.

VI Riders is a non-profit society that supports emerging snowboard athletes in the elements of freestyle snowboarding.

The athletes travel to Mt. Washington from across the Island on a weekly basis to train with certified coaches in a safe and fun environment. The team has experienced a growing number of female athletes joining the club in the last few years and it has become a much more diverse group with a range of ability from competent development riders to competitive riders. VI Riders has provided many keen snowboard athletes an opportunity to take their skills to the next level and as a result, Island athletes are making quite an impression provincially and nationally.”

VI Riders will be offering an early bird registration discount up to Nov. 15. For more information and registration details check out the website www.viriders.org or call Dave and Kelsa Donald at 250-923-0523.
