Goals of the FUNdamentals (Jumps and Bumps) program:
The goal of the Jumps and Bumps program is for the young athlete to learn all the basic freestyle skiing skills. The athlete will learn jumping skills and simple tricks like grabs, twisters, spreads, 180s, 360s, etc. They will work in the terrain park to learn terrain park etiquette, how to navigate and make route selection in the park according to personal abilities, and how to approach a box and a rail. In the moguls, the athletes will learn how to pick a good line, how to effectively absorb the bumps and how to control their speed. When an athlete graduates from this program, they will be ready to enroll in the Freestylerz program, the next stage in the freestyle progression for more advanced/older athletes (9-12). Building strength and stamina by being active in other sports is encouraged; activities such as gymnastics and trampoline compliment the athletics required in freestyle skiing.
One day per week program: $565. Two days per week program: $1030
