About

The focus of Fernie Freestyle Ski Club is to build a foundation for a lifetime of enjoyment for skiing 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 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. Members of our Club compete in events in Alberta and BC that are organized by BC Freestyle and IFSA (International Freeskiers & Snowboarders Association). Our goal is to have an 8:1 athlete to coach ratio. Groups are divided based on ability and age.

We offer programs throughout the year: skiing at Fernie Alpine Resort, mid-week training at WinSport in Calgary, trampoline training in Fernie & Calgary, Air Bag & Water Ramping in Alberta & BC and summer camps at Whistler Glacier.

Our Competitive athletes have been selected to Canadian Junior National Freestyle Championships, 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.
