Mindful Riding

BLUE Mountain: Mar 10

Mindfulness is all the rage these days. But, did you know it can have positive impacts on your riding?

To be mindful generally means paying attention to whatever is occurring, as it happens in the present moment, without judgment. By letting go of what’s already happened and the need for a specific future outcome, performance can improve.

This half-day session will combine both mindfulness concepts and snowboarding techniques to help you enhance your riding. Designed for intermediate riders.
