The Winter Park Freestyle Team is arguably the strongest team in the country. Last season, one of our premier athletes, Bruce Perry was named to the US Freestyle Ski Team and participated in his first two World Cups. We qualified three athletes for Junior World Championships. Bruce Perry and Casey Andringa unfortunately suffered injuries, and were unable to attend. Joel Hedrick, Junior National Mogul Champion is currently the number one junior in the country, did attend, capturing 4th and 6th places. Our Nor-Am team is the largest in the country and continues to place athletes on the podium on this demanding tour. If you are a committed athlete looking to excel in the sport of freestyle moguls, Winter Park is the place to train, boasting a full-length, FIS specification mogul course right at the base December - April, 2 permanent aerial sites, and 3 additional mogul courses on the mountain.
The full-time Freestyle Team is an intensive year-round training program for the freestyle competitor with a total commitment toward reaching their highest goals in competitive freestyle skiing. Skiers train six days a week during the ski season. During the off-season, athletes participate in several summer camps and projects while following a physical training program designed to prepare them for success during the ski season. A highly experienced coaching staff teaches the most current techniques of mogul skiing and aerials using the latest in video technology to help the athletes improve. Off-snow sessions include indoor trampoline sessions, mental skills training, and physical conditioning led by our Sports Performance specialist Freddy Mooney and Psycologist Stephanie Zavilla.

Winter training takes place in the afternoons on Tuesday through Thursday, and all day Friday through Sunday. (East Grand Middle School students train the aforementioned days except for Wednesdays.) Middle school and high school athletes enroll in the East Grand School District where schedules are arranged for core classes to take place in the morning, and student/athletes are transported to the ski area at lunch time for afternoon training. East Grand is on a 4-day school week, so skiers have a full day of training on Friday - it doesn't get any better!
