Team Afton Freestyle – Snowboard or Twin Tip

The Afton Alps Snowboard or Twin Tip Team’s mission is to give young snowboarders and twin tippers an opportunity to develop and enhance their skills through participation in a high quality program that emphasizes safety, fun, and learning. We are dedicated to helping athletes achieve their goals and reach or exceed their expectations.
