Freeskiing started as a movement away from traditional ‘Freestyle’ and ‘Alpine’ skiing such as Moguls, Aerials, and all types of Alpine Racing. Today the realm of ‘Freeski’ disciplines include Park & Pipe (Slopestyle, Halfpipe, Big Air, Rail Jam), Big Mountain, and SkiCross.
Our Park & Pipe programs focus on terrain parks and across the mountain skiing a combination of rails, jumps, halfpipe, and other transition features. Athletes will ski the mountain to ensure they are proficient skiers and we’ll be leaving the parks for pow when it snows! We offer training at at world class venues like Park City Mountain, Utah Olympic Park and Woodward Park City. We compete at Local and Regional levels all the way up to National and International levels. We attend competitions across the disciplines of Slopestyle, Big Air, Halfpipe, Rail Jam, and SkiCross.
Our purpose is to do good corks and ski good too. To instill the fundamentals, work ethic, and passion for personal excellence and lifelong skiing.
We achieve these goals by building confidence through respect for one’s self and environment, through personal and shared experiences and ownership and accountability of each individual’s goals.

I earned my Level 100 Freestyle Coaching license in 1984 while coaching in Telluride. First Tracks: In the back yard down to a lake when I was eight. It isn't surprising that a jump was involved.
