Freestyle Team or WMRFT at its simplest, is a group of young skiers and snowboarders ages 8-18. The team consists mostly of ‘local’ youth from all over our Flathead Valley. Some kids have graduated from our Ski & Ride School’s ‘Development Program,’ as well as athletes from our local Alpine Race Team, some who even dual train. We even have kids from other US States and Canada.
Our primary emphasis is safety on the mountain; we teach kids how to make appropriate choices when choosing terrain and snow quality. Kids learn about tree well safety and avalanche awareness. Basically, we are an all mountain team with a freestyle progression base. Meaning, if athletes want to learn how to do tricks (180’s, 360’s, grabs etc) or want to participate in freestyle competitions, we will help them learn and master the skills needed to be successful. If an athletes’ interests are not focused on learning tricks, our coaches will center their teaching around other advanced freeride skills.
We do spend a lot of time skiing and riding every part of the mountain as long as the snow is safe and appropriate for what we are doing. We, like most youth programs, give the kids time to free ski/free ride to practice and hone their skills.
Freestyle Team has a very broad spectrum of curriculum, from all mountain skiing/riding to competition preparation AND everything in between!
Our coaching is structured around the interests of each group of athletes. Our coaching staff is passionate, experienced, trained and are all positive mentors to their athletes.
