“Creating a clear athlete path”
Fernie Freestyle Ski Club's goal is to create skiers for life through freestyle skiing programs that focus on skills in a fun, safe and challenging environment where athletes learn from experienced CFSA (Canadian Freestyle Ski Association) certified caches. Our program is based on the Long Term Athlete Development Plan, outlined by the CFSA and we offer programs that allow skiers to progress their freestyle skills with the Club.
