QUICKRIDE

Quickride is simply the fastest and easiest way to get you going on a snowboard. You'll learn at your own pace by building your own progression to radness, with the help of a qualified instructor.

WHAT'S QUICKRIDE?

Quickride is a comprehensive way to introduce you to the sport of snowboarding by breaking it down in logical phases of learning with an array of fun little tricks to help you get there safely and comfortably. CASI instructors are trained to use the 5-step QuickRide System, and cater the learning experience to you.

Tips & Tricks For New Riders...

EAT!

Snowboarding is a sport and you need the energy. Today is the perfect day to have your favorite: chocolate chip pancakes smothered in maple syrup. YUM!


 

CHECK THE WEATHER

Be prepared to spend a few hours in anything from sub-zero temperatures to nice and sunny. Dressing in layers is key. Cotton is for summer; not for snowboarding.


 

GET OUT THERE!

You're never too old (or young) to become a snowboarder. Most rental shops stock equipment for kids as young as 4, and QuickRide resorts can provide lessons for this age as well. If the kids want to shred, let 'em shred!


 

GET THE RIGHT GEAR

The right equipment makes learning way easier. Resorts rent boards built to learn on. Ask for boots, boards and bindings specifically for beginners that include base bevel, topsheet traction and soft flex.


 

WHICH FOOT FORWARD?

Snowboarding is a sideways sport - almost everyone has a natural front foot. To determine whether you're "goofy" (right forward) or "regular" (left forward), envision yourself sliding across a slippery floor.


 

RELAX!?

Come with an open mind. It might be a little different than what you were told by your brother, that cool aunt of yours, or that computer game. It's nothing like the game...it's better!
