DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

Freestyle Skill Advancement and Competitive Intro

The CMFSC Development Program is designed for athletes who have a strong interest in progressing their freestyle skills, with an eye on future competitive endeavors, or just simply skiing the park and the rest of the mountain.   Athletes should already have strongly developed skiing fundamentals and an ambition to learn new progression.  This program aims to teach general freestyle skills such as slopestyle skiing, moguls, glade skiing but with a focus on more advance techniques.  Development Program athletes will have the opportunity to sign up with additional cost for dry-land/trampoline training, two on snow training camps, and summer water ramp training.  By no means mandatory, athletes will be encouraged to compete in local freestyle competitions.

Competition fees not included in cost.
