The BC Snowboard Association (BCSA) is a non-profit sport organization, which is the governing body of snowboarding within the Province. The BCSA is an organization that brings youth into a fun and supported environment while competing in a sport they love.

Snowboarding first appeared at the Olympics in Nagano, Japan at the 1998 Winter Olympic Games. The two events were the giant slalom, similar to the ski event, and halfpipe or freestyle event.
