The Freeriderz Experience

As an intermediate to advanced skill ski club, athletes come to us ready to take on the next challenge and the next step in their freestyle development. Our job is to get them ready for that - safely, successfully, while having fun. Our program is focused on developing athletes in three freestyle disciplines – slopestyle, big mountain and halfpipe.

We believe in promoting athleticism as well as injury prevention. This is accomplished not only on the snow, but also through dryland, trampoline and airbag training. Athletes are blended into smaller, individualized training groups.

Our Mission

To grow the passion for freestyle skiing in the lives of our athletes.

Our Approach

We have fun. We work hard. We get results. 

  • We focus on developing our athletes to achieve the best of themselves and expect our athletes to commit equally to training and to developing the strength, agility and technique required to perfect their next trick or big mountain line. 
  • We believe that passion is found not only in fun, of which we have tons, but also through accomplishment. 
  • We expect commitment to personal goals, to fellow athletes as part of a team, and to the Calgary Freeriderz Freestyle Club as a performance athlete member. Attendance at all training sessions is required.

Community is important to us. 

  • Parent involvement is encouraged and volunteers are required for many jobs. 
  • Our coaches, athletes and parents are ambassadors not only for the Calgary Freeriderz but for the sport of freestyle skiing and youth sports at large.

Our History

The Calgary Freeriderz Freestyle Ski Club was formed in the summer of 2008 by a small group of five families who were unable to find a program that was the right fit for their quickly developing young athletes. With the right combination of planning and coaching, this group of parents designed a program to meet the growing need for high performance training. Our athletes have graduated to provincial and national level teams, many return to coach with the Freeriderz inspiring the next generation of athletes, while others continue to ride the mountain and enjoy the fun of skiing.

We are members of the Canadian and Alberta Freestyle Ski Associations
