Freeski Park & Pipe Part-Time Program

FREESKI PARK & PIPE WEEKEND TEAM  (Ages 13-18)

Overall this team is designed for athletes that love the terrain park environment. These athletes want to specifically focus on park, rails, halfpipe and competitions.  A successful participant in this program comes with strong ski skills and a passion for park and pipe or is moving up from our Rookie Team. This athlete is able to ski the hardest trails, can already hit features in the terrain park and has had a taste of competing. Having the ability to jump in the terrain park is a plus, but we can coach you in this area to improve. This skier has an aggressive athletic mindset and is looking forward to competing. The athletes on this team will often ski and train with the athletes on our other park & pipe teams, such as our full-time age appropriate teams.

Freeski Park & Pipe Full-Time Programs

FREESKI PARK & PIPE FULL-TIME HIGH SCHOOL (Grades 9-12 & PG)

This program is for high school and PG athletes that are ready to commit and want to achieve their highest potential in skiing. This group will have more specialized training geared toward the skill based needed in the terrain park. However, programming for this team will be age appropriate and have a broad focus encompassing everything from carving turns, all mountain skiing, ski cross and of course park and pipe skills. More specifically, we will work early season to enhance this athlete’s general freeskiing abilities: focused freeskiing, practice drills, fundamentals, general all mountain terrain skiing and carving drills. There is also off-snow training where we use trampolines and dryland conditioning. We will focus on air awareness skills and basic acrobatics in relation to the competitive sport of freeskiing. As always, fun will be involved and team camaraderie and sportsmanship will be incorporated daily. The athlete will be held to a high standard of character, courage and commitment.

Participation Criteria:  strong skiing ability, comfortable performing tricks on medium terrain features and able to hit large terrain park features; some competition experience needed

FREESKI FULL-TIME  |  MIDDLE SCHOOL (Grades 5-8)

This full-time program is designed for freeskiers in 5th through 8th grade who already have a solid foundation of competition experience to help them to be the best they can be. Top-end coaches utilize the most progressive techniques to achieve results at the next level in park, pipe and big mountain. We believe in building a solid foundation of fundamental freeskiing and using that foundation to help athletes challenge themselves every day. We do this by establishing positive relationships, providing individual support and creating a safe and fun environment to push boundaries. On weekdays, athletes will do a combination of park, pipe and big mountain. On weekends, they can choose whether they would prefer to train and compete in park, pipe and/or big mountain. This unique form of cross-training will assist in their overall athletic progression before they specialize in either park and pipe or big mountain when they enter high school.

Participation Criteria:  strong skiing ability, comfortable performing tricks on medium terrain features and able to hit medium terrain park features; some competition experience needed

FREESKI FULL-TIME 4 Day (Grades 2-6)

This freeski full-time 4 day program is designed for athletes in 2nd through 6th grade who want to advance in their sport and have fun doing it with exposure to park and pipe along with big mountain. We pride ourselves on providing industry-leading coaching, sharing our love of the sport with our athletes and seeing them develop into not only the best skier they can be, but more importantly, the best people they can be.

Participation Criteria:  comfortable on ungroomed terrain and able to hit small – medium terrain park features; no competition experience needed
