COACHING

High Cascade is Known for World-Class Coaching

Under the Direction of Head Coach, Will Rivera, our world-class coaches of the likes of Seth Hill, Max Warbington, Colin Spencer, JD Dennis, and many others, focus on your specific needs to make you the best rider you can be. When you combine our world-class coaching with our pristine private parks in flawless summer weather, progression is inevitable at HCSC…. Come dial in your riding skills, and take home a bag of tricks large enough to make even the best of pros jealous.

Whether You are a Beginner, Intermediate, OR Advanced…

(or anything in between), we’ll have the right coach just for YOU! Campers are divided into coaching groups according to ability first, age second, and placed with the most suitable male or female coach. Our coaches are trained in freestyle snowboarding, and have the ability to coach at any ability level.

The Perfect Balance™

Unlike instruction you may get at a resort, HCSC’s coaching program is designed to go hand-in-hand (or mitten-in-mitten) with our world-renowned snowboard parks (we’ve been building snowboard parks since the summer of 1990).  That means there is a specific progression for all our features and all of your riding; from the smallest Mini Features to the biggest Superpipe, our coaches will guide you through this terrain at your own pace to hot-step your progression and promote fun while doing so. We call the marriage of the people and our parks The Perfect Balance™ as it is designed specially to lead progression.

To really boil it down, in order to achieve The Perfect Balance™ High Cascade employs trained and Authorized Awesome™ coaches (people pt. 1) to help show our amazing campers (people pt. 2) how to use our Private Snowboard Parks (parks) how to advance their riding at a specific and comfortable pace (progression).

Mathematically speaking, it looks like this, for those “numbers” people.
High Cascade x (People + Parks + Progression) = The Perfect Balance™

Coaching Focus:

  • Technique

  • Balance

How Long Are Your With Your Coach?

Campers are with their coach and group until 1:30*, and then finish the day by choosing any of the offered daily afternoon clinics… Everyday we offer optional freeride, Lap Park, jump, rail and halfpipe clinics for all abilities. Each session there will be optional Signature Clinics offered by Signature Session™ pros. How about a rail clinic with Spencer Schubert, a one-foot clinic with Scott Stevens or a jump clinic with Hailey Langland?!

New To Snowboarding?

YES! We love new snowboarders. Learn about our Soft Start™ program for first timers here. This program utilizes natural terrain to help making learning to snowboard easy and fun!

Private Coaching

Looking for one-on-one coaching for your entire stay at High Cascade Snowboard Camp? Getting undivided attention from a coach all session is a sure-fire way to improve your riding. This option has limited availability (meaning it sells out).
