Freestyle Team

Information

The Freestyle Team utilizes the Fishbowl Terrain Parks, the Jump Hill aka Knox Landing and all of the freeride terrain our mountain has to offer. We won’t miss a powder day! The Program includes a few options: Saturday training includes Big Mountain Freestyle (also known as big mountain free skiing/freeriding), Terrain Park and competition training. Friday nights are focused on Terrain Park and competition training and Sunday afternoons are focused on big mountain freestyle training. All days will incorporate a focus on mountain safety.

New freestylers will focus on jumping and jibbing basics while more experienced team members focus on refining techniques and competition strategies. A progressive curriculum is employed at all levels, starting small & simple and moving to bigger and more complex. Coaches are high-end Freestylers, with coaching and competition experience.

Participation in competitions is encouraged. Whitefish Mountain Resort hosts Freestyle events each season. Training schedules and competition details will be posted as well as part of the emailed newsletter. The Holiday Camp and coaching during at-home events are both included in the program fees. Additional training days and travel event coaching are arranged on an individual basis and are not included in the program fees.

All athletes interested in Freestyle Team should be able to ski and ride every Whitefish Mountain Resort groomed run at an Advanced Level to be eligible.

Athletes must be at least 8yrs old to participate in our Saturday program and at least 10yrs old to participate in our Friday and Sunday programs.

“Whitefish Freestyle” is a non-profit support organization separate from the WMR Freestyle Ski and Snowboard Team. It is made up of current and past parents, coaches and supporters from the community. Through fundraising efforts, there is a fund available that pays for team activities, and subsidizes team travel expenses, coaches education and scholarships for Freestyle Team program fees. To contribute to this fund or for confidential scholarship application information, please contact Steve Knox at whitefishfreestyle@yahoo.com
