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 program offers training for skiers 10+ years old, including a wide variety of programs to suit all schedules. Our skill development focus will leave your athlete prepared to safely have fun in Park City’s world-class parks as well as skiing all over the mountain. We offer training at world-class venues like Park City Mountain, Utah Olympic Park, and Woodward Park City to prepare athletes for local competitions all the way up to world cup events in Slopestyle, Big Air, and Halfpipe.

Hometown: Highland, Michigan ... but I have lived in Park City for as long as I lived in Michigan, so both count as my hometowns now. Years Coaching: 35 years. 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. My first 'real' lesson was at 10-years-old at Alpine Valley, Michigan and right after the lesson there definitely was a jump involved.
