Freeski Big Mountain Header Image

AGES 12+

The Winter Park Big Mountain program is geared towards focused Big Mountain skiers/athletes who have the love for the mountains, Big Mtn terrain, environment and those who are interested in competitions on a high level. Athletes in this program travel to regional, national and potentially international competitions. Athletes are introduced to ski mountaineering concepts such as snow safety, avalanche awareness and line selections, in addition to goal setting, video analysis and sports psychology. There is an emphasis on skill development: developing general freeski ability, focused freeskiing, practice drills. There will be some off snow training available where we use trampolines to focus on air awareness skills and basic acrobatics in relation to freeskiing. As always we have fun, practice good sportsmanship and team unity will be incorporated. This team showcases fantastic energy and a special camaraderie between athletes not found on any other team in the region.
