We are pleased to offer a comprehensive Freeride Sports Program that is accessible to a wide variety of athletes, from kids looking to develop freeriding skills to driven competitors.
Mission: Crystal Mountain Freeride utilizes our huge mountain playground to help teach core principles of excellent riding technique, mountain safety, good decision-making, competition freeriding, and mountain skills.
With this in mind, we have created a developmental pipeline for our participants. This approach aids in creating an environment that allows coaches to focus on athletes’ development and skills. They move through a system that teaches fundamentals in technical skiing and riding in appropriately challenging terrain.
