Summer Snow training is essential for serious competitors who want to advance their skiing to the next level. The Freestyle America Whistler Camp maximizes the opportunity of summer glacier skiing through coaching focused on each athletes own personal goals and imparting a curriculum of technical skiing elements, aerial skill progression, and plenty of mileage training and practice time. Additionally, 2 afternoons of trampoline training at the Whistler Gymnastics will help athletes refine their mogul, slope, and half-pipe airs.
Athletes may choose the Mogul program, or the Freesking program, or both.
MOGUL COACHING PROGRAM: Camp consists of 2 training rotations of 4 days, each separated by a rest day. The training program includes the technical fundamentals of mogul skiing. A second training focus is aerial skill work, including rotations, off-axis tricks, and qualified inverted jumps. A third training component is competitive tactics, speed, aerial entries and exits. A fourth task is mileage and top to bottom competition quality skiing. Mogul skiers all share the goal of achieving 100 mogul runs throughout the camp and scoring 2 points over their best score during the competition days.
FREESKIING COACHING PROGRAM: The Freeskiing coaching program includes training on the Momentum venue adjacent to our mogul lane, the big air table top below the mogul lane, and the Momentum half-pipe. The Slopestyle curriculum includes off-axis air training (including a Bag Jump facility), grabs, switch skiing, and competition run development and practice. The half-pipe training program includes practicing specific hits (pipe airbag available), pipe specific skiing skills including switch take-offs and landings, grabs, and pipe competition run practice. And yes, if you’d like to add a little mogul training in with your camp, you may do so.
