Freeride Program

Support the Freeride Program

The Jackson Hole Ski & Snowboard Club’s Freeride Program offers competitive level coaching for both snowboard and freeski athletes who want to develop and refine their style in big mountain, terrain park, and halfpipe riding.  The JHSC Freeride Program is Jackson's only competitive freeski and snowboard program that offers elite level coaching and travel opportunities.  Our USASA and IFSA certified Freeride Program Coaches will mentor and coach athletes at practice, and in regional, national, and international competitions.  Competition is not mandatory to join the Freeride Program, and we have multiple program offerings to support your level of commitment. 

Technical proficiencies and skill assessments will be a component of our weekly training.  We do mid and end of season athlete evaluations based of the USSA's Developmental Matrix.  We promote strong work ethic, all-mountain etiquette, sound decision-making skills, sportsmanship, creativity, and confidence.  We strive to create community for all athletes within the Freeride Program and hope that our programming can serve as a vehicle for life long learning.   All of the Freeride Program coaches get yearly background checks, they are certified by the USASA and/or IFSA, and have a strong passion for coaching. 

Please see our different program offerings for a program that is best for you (Shredder, Progression, Progression +, & Competition).  There is notable scholarship funding for JHSC Freeride Program Athletes, please click here for more information.  Please contact Program Director Andy Lex for assistance in finding a program that is best for you.
