Vancouver Island Riders Snowboard club is busy preparing for another amazing year on Mt. Washington.  With a number of former VI athletes now competing provincially and nationally, the riders are looking to fill the development and competitive squads and keep the club moving in a positive direction.

“We  have some incredibly gifted athletes on this Island and the VI club and coaches are excited to watch our alumni and competitive athletes move on to new challenges and higher level competition,” said a release from VI.

The club has recently developed a strong female development/competitive program which is setting a new standard for emerging female freestyle snowboarding athletes on our mountain.

“With the recent announcement by the International Olympic Committee to include the immensely popular spectator sport of Freestyle Snowboarding in the 2014 Olympics, there has been quite a buzz in the air.

“This is the domain our athletes have been training in for the past five years and this is very exciting news for the snowboard community,” said the release.

VI Riders is a non-profit, fully sanctioned, freestyle oriented snowboard club whose primary goal is to encourage progression in a fun and focused environment.
