Freestyle/Freeride Programs

AVSC Freestyle/Freeride has outstanding programs where older athletes can choose their focus in Moguls (Freestyle), Big Mountain (Freeride), Pipe & Park (Freeskiing), or a combination of disciplines. Younger athletes participate in well-rounded programs, helping them develop into strong all mountain skiers while building foundational skills for all freestyle disciplines. Whether your goal is an X Games podium and going to the Olympics, like AVSC alumni Alex Ferriera and Torin Yater-Wallace, or you want to learn new tricks in the safest ways possible, we have the program to fit your needs. 

For more information contact Freestyle/Freeride Program Director Eric Knight at 205-5130 or eknight@teamavsc.org.

DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS

Our development programs are designed for athletes who are focused on progressing in their sport, getting outside, and having fun. They are enthusiastic skiers who want to develop freestyle and all-mountain skills while enjoying the camaraderie of a team. While they’re passionate skiers, they want to enjoy summers and holiday breaks free of training (dryland and holiday camps are not included in program fees for Development programs). While they may be interested in competing at a local level, they’re not looking to travel far afield or pursue high-level competition. Looking for a program with a higher level of commitment? Check out our competitive programs on the previous page.

Note: Any development athletes that qualify and compete at USASA Nationals will be charged $500 for extended training leading up to and at Nationals (this includes coaches expense charge at Nationals).
