The mission of the SVSEF mogul program is to further human development both physically and mentally through passion for and commitment to an athletic lifestyle.

The SVSEF Mogul Team focuses on learning to turn while exploring and perfecting aerial maneuvers. We strive to teach athletes basic skiing techniques and how those techniques are applicable to any type of terrain and any snow condition. Our freestyle training progression is used by all of our teams and will be covered at different depths and details depending on the team and the ages of the athletes.

Skiing is a lifelong sport – there is always more to learn. Basic skiing technique is always evolving, and the concepts and skills we discuss and demonstrate with the athletes are a constant work in progress. Our athletes strive for lofty goals in a team atmosphere, building on the momentum, enthusiasm and support of each other. Whether your sights are on making the U.S. Moguls Team or overcoming a fear of trying a new trick, our coaches will help you prepare and provide you with the opportunities to soar to success!
