A unique indoor ski & snowboard experience
Since 2012, Shredder has grown into the premiere indoor snow sports experience for families of Colorado’s Front Range. Our programs allow a fun-loving clientele to develop their ski and snowboard skills in a comfortable, social, and safe environment. With aspirations to expand nationally, Shredder is pursuing the mission of making snow sports accessible to all.
Shredder is Colorado’s first year-round ski and snowboard business dedicated to teaching the fundamentals of snow sports.
Shredder is a Colorado-owned, independent company focused on community engagement and families. Our business is designed to help lower the barriers of entry for kids and adults to learn a new sport by addressing the common industry issues of time, distance, and money. Shredder’s innovative curriculum and unique “snow” experience increases the conversion and retention rates for ski and snowboard participation because it is accessible, affordable, and fun!
Built around PSIA-AASI principles, Shredder’s philosophy is to guide participants through skill progressions to build confidence, knowledge, and proficiency. Our facility accommodates various stations that emphasize ski/snowboard techniques while developing the strength, agility, and athleticism to enjoy the sport independently.
