Intro to Free Ride Skiing
Our Introduction to Free Riding Skiing program made its debut last season and was very a big hit! This program focuses on developing freestyle alpine fundamentals with emphasis on safety. It is an 8-week program for children ages 6-16 who enjoy the Terrain Park and wish to learn the art of freestyle skiing. The program meets for 3 hours on Saturday mornings in January & February.
Young athletes must be at ease in the Terrain Park and be able to load, ride and unload the chairlift independently. Each week the class gathers at the Alpine Training Center and then heads over to the Terrain Park with their coaches. This program focuses on developing freestyle alpine skills and is perfect for children who are thinking about joining our Free Ride Team but cannot make the full commitment or are not sure if they are ready.
At the end of the program, the coaches will provide the students with an assessment of readiness to transition to the Mount Southington Free Ride Team. Parents will also be given the opportunity to meet with coaches and parents of the team to ask questions and get feedback on any concerns they may have.
