STEADY BROOK  Young girls with a flare for snowboarding will have a chance to rub shoulders with a two-time Olympic snowboarder Saturday at Marble Mountain.

Two-time Olympian Sarah Conrad, a 28-year-old Halifax native, will be the guest coach at the Marble Mountain Park Days camp being held at the Steady Brook ski resort from 12:30-4:30 p.m. in the terrain park at Marble Mountain.

The purpose of the event, which is open to female snowboarders 15 years and older, is to provide participants with an opportunity to learn a few tricks and gain confidence on their boards in a female-friendly atmosphere. The four-hour snowboard slope style and carving camp is an opportunity to ride and train with nationally-certified coaches like Conrad.

Conrad is a two-time Olympian who represented Canada in the halfpipe event at Turin 2006 and Vancouver 2010. She posted an 18th place finish in Vancouver after having been 15th in Turin.
