The Powder Ridge Freestyle Ski and Snowboard Team will introduce and improve competitor’s abilities in Terrain Parks, Slopestyle, Halfpipe, Boarder and Skier Cross and compete in the Northeast. We will coach participants on the fundamental skills required to perform many of the maneuvers exhibited by the top skiers and riders as seen in the X-Games and Olympics.
As an elite program for kids 8-years-old and up, team candidates undergo an assessment of proficiency, attitude and commitment. The program requires significant time and resources for the participant and parents. Mandatory weekend practices, and strongly encouraged weekday practices. Training begins in December and extends into March competitions for top northeast athletes.
Candidates should have previous terrain park experience and/or be able to maintain open stance parallel or dynamic parallel turns down any Intermediate or Expert Terrain.
