Teton Gravity Research World Premieres

A big thanks to the crew at Teton Gravity Research and all of the volunteers who helped us run raffles at all three showing of Rogue Elements.  The Freeride Program is honored to be a part of this tradition.  The Teton Gravity Research films highlight the adventures and terrain that we dream about.  Our presence at the world premiere allows the local athletes the chance to connect with the best skiers and riders in the world while participating in a fundraiser that will help to offset Program expenses.  We are extremely grateful for our long-standing partnership with TGR and look forward to many more years of working together.

Utah Olympic Park Camp #2

We brought a crew of dedicated athletes to Park City for our second camp at the Utah Olympic Park and US Skiing and Snowboarding's Center of Excellence.  The two day camps gave participants ample time to work on new tricks onto the airbag and on the 10' x 24' super tramp.  Although the weather was cold and wet, it didn't stop the team from having lots of fun.   

Fall Strength & Conditioning

The Competition Team started strong with their Fall Physical Assessment Test.  The Progression and Progression Plus Teams will begin their eight-week Fall Strength & Conditioning on October 10.
