Fernie Freestyle offers programs to support developing and competing Freestyle athletes throughout the year. Our primary Program is in the winter at Fernie Alpine Resort where we ski the natural terrain at Fernie along with our mogul course, air site and RCR terrain park. For Calgary based athletes, we offer mid week skiing at Canada Olympic Park which provides an additional opportunity for our skiers to practice their slopestyle skills using the jumps, boxes and rail in the terrain park.
To help athletes become more "air aware", we have trampoline programs at various times throughout the year in Fernie and Calgary. Trampoline training is a fundamental aspect of Freestyle skiing because it allows athletes to become more comfortable with spins and inverts in a safe, coached environment. Athletes must qualify tricks off snow before being permitted to try them on snow. Safety is a key aspect of our athlete training.
Other programs that we organize are Air Bag training to further develop new skills and summer ski training at Whistler - Blackcomb Glacier.
