The Freeride training program invites skiers to experience the exciting world of freeride skiing. Team members will receive instruction on using correct technique over all terrain types  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.  Like all Ski Team programs, the Freeride Ski Program is based upon camaraderie, respect, on mountain etiquette and an overall love for the sport.

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. Separate fees apply for those choosing to compete.
