The focus of Fernie Freestyle Club is to build a foundation for a lifetime of enjoyment for skiing/snowboarding and pursuit of the outdoors in a fun and safe environment. Our programs are centered on athletes ages 6 to 17 who want to improve their Slopestyle, Mogul, Park and Big Mountain skiing/snowboarding in a positive, safe and supervised environment.
Our home mountain is Fernie Alpine Resort and our coaches focus on developing athletes’ skills to meet their goals of fun recreational skiing and competing at the Club and Provincial levels.
Fernie Freestyle offers programs for recreational freestylers and competitive skiers/riders. Members of our Club compete in events in BC and Alberta that are organized by BC Freestyle, IFSA (International Freeskiers) & BC Snowboarders. Our goal is to have between 6:1 to 8:1 athlete to coach ratio. Groups are divided based on ability, age and athlete focus.
We offer programs throughout the year: skiing/snowboarding at Fernie Alpine Resort, mid-week training at WinSport in Calgary, trampoline training in Fernie & Calgary, Air Bag & Water Ramping in BC & Alberta plus camps in Whistler Glacier and Maximise Quebec. Our training programs run year-round.
Our Competitive athletes have been selected to Canadian Junior National Freestyle Championships, BC/Alberta Freestyle Championships, Provincial & National Freestyle Ski Teams.
Our mission is to develop athletes in a safe, fun and ethical manner in all disciplines of Freestyle Skiing/Snowboarding with qualified Freestyle Canada Coaches.
