Best Kids Snowboards – Winter 2018

Best Kids Snowboards – Winter 2018

While adult snowboards are divided into specialized categories (all-mountain, freestyle, powder) allowing for much more variety and choice, kids snowboards are generally fairly standard and simple in design. Nonetheless, knowing the difference between a good or bad quality board for your child can be challenging. In order to help make things a tad easier, we have compiled our selections of the best kids’ snowboards based on value, brand, and technology. We would confidently recommend these boards to any of our own campers. It’s time to say goodbye to dated hand-me-downs and hello to shredding in style with these child-sized versions of the latest and greatest in snowboarding technology!

 

Burton Custom Smalls Kids Snowboards

The Channel® mounting system means the easiest, most adjustable setup possible with compatibility that works with any binding from most major brands. The Custom Smalls is a step up in performance over the Burton Process Smalls and is designed for kids who shred it all from park to pow and everything in between. This season ushers in a brand new shape that feels good underfoot, while high-performance features like the Super Fly® core and overall light weight keep kids satisfied as their skills progress.

Ski and Snowboard Clips to Get You AMPED for CAMP

The first weekend of camp hype is building up here at the Evolve Camps headquarters! We’re busy finalizing arrangements in order to make this season the best one yet.

In a few sleeps our campers will be waking up early, getting on the coach bus and heading on their way to Mount St Louis Moonstone. They’ll hit the slopes and improve their ski or snowboard skills from the help of our awesome instructors. We can’t wait for our campers to test out our new promo ski’s and boards from our buds at Lib Tech and Armada.

To get you pumped for the first day of camp we’ve posted a few short clips, check em’ out below!

Evolve Snow Camp Tips for First Timers

Evolve Snow Camp Tips for First Timers

First time hitting the slopes with Evolve this winter? We’re super stoked to have you join the family! Heres some tricks of the trade to make your time at camp as smooth as possible.

Check Weather Conditions to Determine How to Dress

On cold days you’ll definitely want to bundle up. Although keep in mind that exercising in the snow means your body will get warmer as your session goes on, so don’t wear too many clothes underneath your gear. If you’re unsure, take an extra layer and keep it in your bag incase you need it.

Eat Breakfast

Doing physical activity without food in your system is never a good idea and for skiing and snowboarding its no exception. Make sure to either eat at home before heading to the bus drop off or pack something to eat for the bus ride up.

eat breakfast before camp

Bring Bus Entertainment

Pack some dvd’s (we also like to bring ski/snowboard movies to hype up the bus), a book, mp3, playing cards, or anything that would keep you occupied for the bus ride up to camp. Pro tip: making friends on your bus is a great way to stay entertained, don’t be shy to talk to someone new!

Bring Snacks

At Evolve we promote healthy living, which means packing healthy snacks and healthy lunches. Pack snacks to refuel throughout the day or for the bus ride home. Energy-boosting snacks like granola or protein bars are are great to bring. Just as you should be eating periodically throughout the day, you should also be drinking often as well so pack some drinks like water or gatorade.

Ask Questions!

Our instructors are there to help you build skills. Take advantage of their expertise and ask any questions you have. If you’re not understanding a certain technique, just ask your instructor for some extra advice on how to get it right. They will also be watching you and providing feedback on their own.

Make New Friends

Although its a skiing and snowboarding is solo sport, campers are put in groups by their age and skill level. On the first day of camp our staff ensure that all campers get to know each other. There are plenty of opportunities to meet new people from the moment you step on the bus to the time you get home. Friends make camp much more fun!
