Freeski Teams

Skiing is a lifelong sport; there is always more to learn. Basic 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. Team or overcoming a fear of trying a new trick, our coaches will provide you with the opportunities to soar to success.
