Mount Southington Free Ski & Ride Team
Our Free Ski & Ride Team consists of both skiers and snowboarders ages 7-18 who wish to learn the art of freestyle and improve their techniques, while having fun on the slopes! This is your chance to train and compete your way!
Skiers, click here to learn more about freestyle skiing. Snowboarders, do you know how to link turns (check it out here) and ride the entire mountain? If the answer is yes, then this is the program for you! Note: Skiers and riders must be able to ride the entire mountain and riders must be able to link turns.
Our goal oriented, progressive learning program provides skiers and riders with the opportunity to enhance their skills and abilities with emphasis on safety. This program is designed to be fun while helping young people develop physically, psychologically and socially. Our finest certified coaches will teach skiers and riders various freestyle fundamentals to utilize both in the program and on their own! This learning experience also gives athletes the chance to interact with others and share their passion. Dryland training begins November 23rd and continues on December 7th from 10am-12pm. Once the area opens, the team hits the slopes and terrain park every Thursday from 6:30pm-9:00pm, and Saturday and Sunday from 8:30am-1:30pm.
The Free Ski & Ride Team will compete in competitions throughout Connecticut and Southern New England. Dates will be posted as soon as they are confirmed. Mount Southington will be host to a competition or two as well.
