Freestyle

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 athletes often train as a group and/or are divided up into groups based on age and ability. We encourage all athletes to compete in all disciplines. There will be a strong emphasis in the B Division to develop and master basic skiing skills, such as stance and balance. 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 schedule for meets. The coaching staff will support all scheduled away meets. Before the meets, training will be available at Mount Sunapee when possible. Also, when possible, we will offer skiing with a coach from 2:45-3:45pm on Saturdays.
