Our competition schedule is selected from the Ski The East Freeride Tour (www.skitheeast.net/freeridetour) and selected IFSA North American Junior Tour events (www.freeskiers.org). All Freeski athletes are encouraged to attend competitions with the team, and coaching resources are prioritized toward supporting competition. We provide coaching support at local and away competitions from January through to April. The training curriculum is planned to prepare team members for each competition event on the schedule. Our 2017 competition schedule will be provided by the Head Coach prior to the start of the ski season.
We provide opportunities for pre-season fitness training and skill development on the trampoline as well as water and airbag aerials facilities. Team members are taught ski tuning and maintenance.
Coaches are always available for equipment advice, and we prefer that you ask before you buy. Below are general guidelines.
Freeski team members should have all mountain Freeride skis and bindings in good condition, tuned, and sized properly. Optional equipment includes powder skis, climbing skins, and alpine touring bindings. The list goes on.
Helmets are mandatory at all times. Back protectors are highly recommended for training and competition.
This year SNSC Freeski Team sponsor SKIRACK Burlington is offering pro discounts on skis, boots, bindings, and helmets to all Freeski team athletes and coaches. Additionally, the team receives a 15% discount on all ski shop products and shop services including binding mounting, ski tuning, and repair.
