Overview:  The SVSEF Freestyle Progression Team is a continuation of Mini-X. Our primary goal is to create safe, fun filled training environments while creating the best all mountain skiers. Athletes work on developing their skills while skiing the back bowls, groomers, trees and moguls. They also spend some time in the park, and have the option to train on our world-class mogul & jump venue on Roundhouse. The on-snow breakdown is 20% course/venue, 50% all-mountain and 30% freeski. Athletes are also welcome to participate in our summer training camps and early season on-snow camps. 

 

Our Air Barn training sessions focus on building athlete’s air awareness in our state of the art Air Barn. Athletes have the opportunity to work on developing their tumbling and trampoline skills with the possibility of hitting the dry slope jump into the air bag. 

Athletes on the Freestyle Progression team must be solid independent skiers with an interest or experience in freestyle skiing. 

Competition: Athletes on the Freestyle Progression team participate in our intra- club competitions and have the opportunity to compete at USSA Regional Development level events (additional cost to cover coaches fees).
