Team Description

2022-2023 Freeride AltaBird 15-18 Program 

The National Freeride Program is our most elite program geared towards the top-level skiers who have a desire to be the top athletes in the Junior IFSA Big Mountain Competition environment. The athletes on this team will travel to and compete at 4-6 IFSA qualifying events to earn points towards making it to the North American Championships, as well as World Junior Events.  

The coaching focus will include:

  • Skiing steep, technical terrain fluidly and confidently
  • Decision-making during highly competitive & very technical situations.
  • Proper line choice and competitive strategy
  • Air awareness
  • Focus on personal style and consistency
  • Create a long-term competitive game plan and marketable personal image

Athlete Age: 15-18

Athlete Experience: Athletes can ski all types of terrain in all variability, aggressively and proficiently.  

Athletes new to the program must participate in a tryout day at the end of November to be placed in the correct group. Athletes that don’t possess the proper skill level may be moved to a different group and/or program within SBSEF.  If a different group is unavailable, we will do our best to help find you another program that will be a fit. SBSEF holds the right to deny program access based on skill level.

Competition and Events:  IFSA sanctioned events

Program includes:

  • Dryland 2x weekly Sept - Nov
  • Holiday Camp
  • On-snow training 1-5 days, late Nov - mid-April
