Ski Freestyle Grom Development - 7/8

Our Grom Development Freestyle ski program introduces and develops skiers beyond the basics of competitive freestyle skiing. Our coaches will progress the athletes into riding larger features and trying more advanced tricks while training for clubs level events.

Athletes will require a strong base of fundamental skiing skills on groomed and varied terrain to compliment their freestyle development.

Stronger development of athleticism and mental preparedness at this level will prepare athletes to move forward in their skiing career.
Athletes are in the “Learn to Train” phase of their long-term athletic development.
