Mountain boarding is just one of many activities campers enjoy at Shaffer's High Sierra Summer Camps.
What is Mountain Boarding?
Mountain boarding is a sport that has grown considerably. You'll use a mountain board, which is sort of a cross between a snow board and a skateboard. It is about three and a half feet long (1 meter) with 9" rubber tires. It's made to ride over terrain much too rough for a skateboard. Though you turn similar to a skateboard, the feel of carving turns is more like a snow board.
You'll start out with a clinic on how to ride, turn, and brake. You'll first learn the basics around the Camp on gently sloping roads and trails. Once you get the hang of it, you'll be able to conquer more challenging trails and perhaps get some air!
