Events introduced through C~S Rider Events
The three different disciplines of snowboarding are included in C~S Riders Events. Snowboardcross is a timed event over a course with a variety of “features”, such as turns, berms (or banked areas), jumps, and rollers. Alpine Racing is a series of turns through gates and is scored by time. Freestyle includes jumps and park features like rails and boxes. Features on the course are designed to help riders work on developing the “ABC” fundamental snowboard skills: Agility, Balance, and Coordination. C~S Riders serves as Stage 3 of the Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) Model and was developed to fill a gap in the availability of grassroots competitive snowboarding events.
