Trails 2 Rails

Program Overview

Trails 2 Rails is a team-based snowboard coaching program and competition held yearly for LU students who have little to no experience on the slopes or in the terrain park. This 2-month shred program takes beginners and makes them winners. And, like all of our activities, it's FREE FOR STUDENTS!

T2R Details

Team Breakdown/Training Program: 4 Teams with 10 Students Each

Progressing in snowboarding is a lot more fun in a group setting! Just ask the members of the LU Ski and Snowboard Team when you see them up on our slopes practicing every day. We require each participant in the T2R Program to commit to just one 2 hour practice session per week with their team.

Team Tryouts: September 13th and 14th (Thursday and Friday) from 7PM - 9PM

Show up to meet our snowboard coaches and to tryout for the teams. Each of the two evenings we are planning on taking 20 students and placing them into teams with specific coaches. If you do not make the cut for one of the teams that is ok. Refer to Blessin's for more Lessons below...

Lesson Incentives: More Lessons, More Skills, More Prizes!

You can still win the same prize as the winning team in the rail jam competition. It's pretty simple... the individual who logs the most lessons with a coach by the end of the program will get the same prize pack as the winning team.

Ultimately, we do have some people drop out of the team battle for different reasons. When this happens we will send an email out to the individuals who continue doing private coaching to offer them a team spot based off of how many lessons they have been taking.

Team Rail Jam Competition: Saturday, September 10th during CFAW

The rail competition is an all-out team style jam where there will be big prizes on the line! For the competition, each team will be alloted a certain amount of time to "jam" on a specific rail setup on the main slope. The team that most impresses the judges will be crowned the winners. Furthermore, the standout snowboarder from the winning team will get a snowboard setup!
