Freeski & Snowboard - Progression

Freeski & Snowboard Progression 

The Progression Team is designed for snowboarders and freeskiers who are looking for advanced training in a recreational and fun environment.  Progression Team athletes must exhibit a medium to high level of dedication to their personal riding.  Training will focus on the fundamentals in all-mountain freeride, halfpipe and slopestyle skills.

USASA and IFSA certified Freeride Program coaches will mentor and coach Progression Team athletes during weekend training and local competitions. The Progression Team has a multi-tiered focus:  Athletes will be refining on fundamentals in order to ski and snowboard the entire mountain, safely hit natural jumps, small cliff drops, and man-made features in varied conditions.  Technical proficiencies and skill assessments will be a regular component of the training.  Additionally, we do mid and end of season athlete evaluations based of the USSA's Developmental Matrix.
