It’s that time again to dig into your Dad’s closet and pull out those one piece powder suits, 210 skinny skis or your snurfer and steal your Grandma’s fanny pack! Retro Fools Day is back at Stevens Pass this year for another day of rowdy’ness and neon over-kill all to support the Service Board.
Last weekend we partnered with Stevens Pass Mountain Resort ski school to provide half of our Snowboard Instructor volunteers with teaching training. Despite being freezing cold, our Instructors came away with better tools to coach our youth this year: shared terminology, a learning progression, new games to teach skills, basic safety lessons and ways to give feedback. Plus we all became stronger riders.
Time to bust out those old straight skis, directional snowboards, one-piece snowsuits and radical attitude for the Retro Fools Day!
There will be a mega prize raffle and awards for best dressed, fastest time, best trick, and most radical. The older and more retro your gear the more style points you get in the stunt ditch and quicker time you post in the downhill slalom race.
