Mount Southington Free Ride Team

Mount Southington Free Ride Team


Attention Freestyle Skiers!! We are heading into another fun filled season with our Free Ride Team!  This team focuses on skiers ages 7 – 18 who wish to learn the art of Freestyle Skiing while having fun on the slopes!  This is your chance to train and compete your way.  Click here to learn more about freestyle skiing.

The Free Ride Team is part of the Mount Southington Race Team.  This program is designed to be fun while helping young people develop physically, psychologically and socially.  Staffed by our finest certified instructors, this program is held at our distinguished Jerry Donovan Alpine Training Center (JDATC).  Dryland training begins November 17th and continues on December 1st 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 Ride Team is a goal oriented, progressive learning program, with emphasis on safety and freestyle/alpine fundamentals. While they begin each training session running drills with the alpine race team on Thunderbolt trail, they branch off to concentrate on their own form and style in the terrain park and other areas on the Mountain. 

The Free 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 hosting the following competitions:
