Our new season ushered in some new faces…
as well as the smiling faces of our returning students and
a new love – snowshoes.
Its our largest group to date, with a mix of both girls and boys, ages 7 -18. The group’s snowboarding skills range from beginner to park. And we were able to finally catch up with our advanced riders – Brandon, Khaliq, Edward, and new to Shred Love, Jaden. As soon as we hit the mountain, these guys usually take off with their volunteer for the day and don’t return unless their starving or its time go.
Brandon stepped up on our last trip and took a group of riders to Windham’s Whiteway Triple ( length – 2,000′ and vertical 354′) for the first time. I’m proud of them for conquering new ground and Brandon for leading the way. Not only do we have riders in our group, we have leaders, tomorrow’s leaders. Join us in building tomorrow’s leaders.
January is Learn to Ski/Snowboard Month, the perfect start to our Learn to Ride 2012 program! Once again, Windham Mountain will host our 3rd annual Learn to Ride program. Windham Mountain has graciously donated lift tickets, lessons from professional instructors, and rental equipment for our group on Sundays, 1/22, 1/29, 2/5, and 2/26. The program is open to youth ages 7-18 years old. All participants must commit to attend all four days to get the full value of the program. Lunch is $7 per day and includes 2 slices of pizza and a soft drink.
We depart W33rd St (b/w Broadway and Ave C) Bayonne, NJ at 6am sharp and return at 7pm. Parents will receive a text message once we are approximately 30 minutes away from Bayonne. On our last day, 2/26, we will have a party and award each participant with a certificate and trophy. Parents/guardians are welcomed to attend our last day, however please note, food and transportation will not be provided for adults. Don’t worry if you can’t make it, we will post a ton of pictures here and on our Facebook page.
