SLOPESTYLE COACHING PROGRAM: The camp consists of 2 training rotations of 4 days each separated by a rest day. The Freeski coaching program occurs on Momentum’s extensive park venue. The Slopestyle curriculum includes jump training on a variety of jump features, rail sessions, switch skiing, competition run development, and snow-to-airbag jumps.
MOGUL COACHING PROGRAM: 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.
