We will be offering clinics for those just getting into split boarding all the way up to experienced riders looking to take it to the next level. From companion rescue and intro clinics to advanced splitting and a complimentary guided tour we are offering something for everyone in our community. 

In a way to show our appreciation to the split community we are offering these 3 hour clinics and a full day tour for free with a $50 refundable deposit. This deposit ensures enrollees participation and that spaces are available for those who really want the experience.
