|After the success of last year’s Roxy Ride Program, Eve Northmore is back again for year two of the ALL girls ride program!
Since 2006, when Eve founded the Women’s Snowboarding Federation (WSF) with friends, Lindsay Deruyter and Amanda Boddington, it has become Eve’s full time job working to provide private clinics, various events through partnership organizations such as Rugged Riders, Billabong,
The Association of Ontario Snowboarder and The National Women in Snowboarding Program. Roxy Ride and Roxy Core Programs both run underneath WSF.
Last year Roxy partnered with the Women’s Snowboard Federation and the Canadian Snowboard - Women In Snowboarding Program, to create the inaugural, and now annual, all girls freestyle snowboard school in Ontario. Approaching full capacity last year, the program demonstrated the dire need for a strictly all girls snowboard coaching program in the province of Ontario. Stopping province wide at Blue Mountain, Lakeridge, Glen Eden, Horseshoe and Beaver Valley, Roxy’s first season was a huge success!
This season, learn to ride, jump, spin, and jib with Roxy at a resort near you! For more information about the program, visit the Roxy site or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. Check out pics from last year’s group here.
