Freeride Programs

The SARS Freeride Program encompasses both snowboarding and skiing for athletes aged nine and older. Our staff is qualified to safely coach athletes in the skills of skiing and snowboarding in “Cross” races, Terrain Park Slopestyle event participation as well as All-Mountain freeride skills. The enthusiastic athlete that would like to compete within the region will be prepared and supported at arenas such as local USASA competitions, Regional Competitions, and USASA National Championship events. One day program athletes will typically compete closer to home at Schweitzer Slopestyle and Ski/Board Cross races.

Youngsters aged 5-8 interested in joining SARS may see our YSL Programs page. Here kids are exposed to entry level terrain park skiing as well as competitive ski racing. The majority of training time is spent honing racing as well as all-mountain skills while gaining a love and appreciation for the sport and competing in Home Series races as well as the Grom Stomp Games.
