To safely learn and compete at the highest level of Freeride (park and pipe) skiing; to perfect and polish forward, switch, off-axis, and inverted maneuvers; to compete in USSA as well as Pro and Open competitions; to compile an edited film segment by the season’s end; to move forward with a unique, individual, and personal skiing progression; and to have fun while being part of the team.
Skiers compete in USSA Eastern Championship Series A level Slopestyle and Halfpipe competitions throughout New England (Must hold USSA competitor’s license); depending on ability, skiers travel to CO for the US Freeskiing Open and the Aspen Freeskiing Open, as well as various East Coast Pro level events.
Plan on traveling to 8 competitions, all over New England, throughout the season. Often leaving on a Thursday and returning on a Sunday. Travel logistics/supervision handled and coordinated by Head Freeride Coach/Program Director.
Either a year in the B FREERIDE Program or a coach screening at the beginning of the season. Enrollment at Okemo Mountain School, for at least a 6 week Target Term, is highly recommended. Skiers should have a knowledge of and passion for the sport, translating to a clear vision and goals for what they wish to achieve.
