Mt. Washington Freestyle Club registration day for new and returning members is Nov. 19  at the Comox Valley Sports Centre, 3001 Vanier Drive, Courtenay from 1 to 4 p.m. “Come out and see what freestyle skiing is all about!” a club spokesperson said.

“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 spokesperson noted.

“Our 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, our own freeride and slopestyle team coached by for X-Games athlete Ben Murphy. This squad is for those who want to ‘stay in the park’ to train and compete exclusively in big air and slopestyle,” said the spokesperson.

“For those looking to improve their skills we offer 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 six 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, and 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 club spokesperson said.

The Mt. Washington Freestyle Club provides a fun, safe skiing experience for competent skiers six years old and up.  Certified training in all freestyle disciplines will give skiers a well-rounded set of skills.

“The aim of our 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,” said the spokesperson.

“We have a fantastic team of coaches who share a love for skiing in a fun, positive, safe and relaxed environment. Join now!”
