Mt. Washington freestyle club looking for new skiers

The Mt. Washington Freestyle Ski Club is Vancouver Island’s only ski program focusing on moguls, slopestyle, and big mountain skills

Here’s your chance to see what freestyle skiing is all about.

The Mt. Washington Freestyle Ski Club is Vancouver Island’s only ski program focusing on moguls, slopestyle, and big mountain skills.  In a team environment kids will learn; turn carving, jumping, rails and mogul skiing in one of the province’s best all round ski programs available for all levels of freestyle skiing.

The club has a competitive team program coached by former national team skier Jamie Tanner.

This team is for athletes looking to travel across B.C. and test their skills against the best freestyle skiers in the province.

The comp team competes in moguls, dual moguls, big air and slopestyle.

A new team will be offered this season, a freeride and slopestyle team coached by Ben Murphy a former X-games athlete.

This squad is for those who want to “stay in the park” train and compete exclusively in big air and slopestyle.

Or for those looking to improve their skills, the team offers a development program in which kids will learn to ski all the terrain the mountain has to offer, at their own pace.  Also a Jumps & Bumps program is offered for age 6 and up working on skill development.

This club has propelled athletes Max Heard, Peter Stubbs and Donnie “feelers” Ottosen to B.C.’s provincial team. They now compete against Canada’s and the world’s finest freestyle skiers in contests around the globe.  Could you be next? Becoming a team member means becoming a part of this exciting and adrenaline filled world.

The Mt. Washington Freestyle Club provides a fun, safe skiing experience for competent skiers 6 years old and up.

Certified training in all freestyle disciplines will give skiers a well rounded set of skills.

The aim of their programs is to provide each skier with the necessary skills, (physical, mental and technical) to achieve their goals and dreams.

We provide opportunities for skiers to experience various levels of competition as well as to enjoy being able to go out and rip all over the mountain.

Mt Washington Freestyle Club Registration Day for new and returning members is Nov. 19, 2011 at the Comox Valley Sports Centre, 3001 Vanier Drive, Courtenay from 1-4 p.m.
