Snowboard Cross Programs

Snow Cross Programs

Boardercross is a snowboard competition in which a four to six snowboarders race down a course. Boardercross courses are typically quite narrow and include cambered turns, various types of jumps, berms, rollers, drops, steep and flat sections designed to challenge the riders’ ability to stay in control while maintaining maximum speed. It is not uncommon for racers to collide with each other mid-race

Snowboard racing is the way to take riding to the next level. Referred to as LEARN TO RACE, this program introduces snowboarders to the racing disciplines and develops turning and air skills with speed.

VOLUNTEERING

MHRC is a volunteer-driven not-for-profit organization. We rely on the participation of parents to run the events and races and our clubhouse. Volunteering at races is necessary to ensure a safe and successful event for the athletes. No experience is necessary and you don’t even need to ski. We will provide training during the season and mentorship for all those eager to learn.

For parents who are new to the team, volunteering is a great way to get involved in your child’s development in ski racing and to get to know other parents. Without volunteers we would not be able to run our club or host events.
