The Freeride All Mountain training program invites skiers ages 9-16 to experience the exciting world of freestyle skiing. Team members will receive instruction on using correct technique over all terrain types, with the focus on switch (backwards) skiing and terrain parks features.

Athletes will learn basic grabs and rotations (no inverts) over park jumps and sliding hard features including rails and boxes. Progressions start at entry level on each feature and encourage safety. Like all Falcons programs, Falcons Freeride All Mountain is based upon camaraderie, respect, on mountain etiquette and an overall love for the sport.

Even though this is a training program and not a competition team, athletes may compete in local events such as the Tahoe Junior Freeride Series (TJFS) and local rail jams. Events will be posted on our calendar as they are announced. Any competition fees are to be paid by the individual.
