Freestyle Team (ages 10-18)

FreestyleThe Freestyle Group will ski all day (9:00 am - 2:30 pm) with a coach. The Freestyle Program strives to develop multi-event freestyle skiers who can compete in Mogul, Half Pipe, “Big Air”, Free Ride, and Slopestyle competitions. The Freestyle program is divided into two groups A & B’s based on age and their current ability level development skills. To acquire the skills the athletes will train on a variety of terrain including flat slopes, moguls, groomed terrain and our terrain parks. Each athlete must be at least 10 years old to join the program and is required to be a member of USSA. Mount Sunapee and USSA require that all athletes wear helmets.

Michael Lovell, Head freestyle coach, will create the competitive schedule for both the A and B groups for meets. The coaching staff will support all scheduled away meets. Before these meets, training will be available at Mount Sunapee when possible. We will offer skiing with a coach from 2:30-3:30 pm on Saturdays. Airbag training will be included in the curriculum to develop aerial skills and work towards performing the jumps in competition.
