The snow is on its way and it is time to think about freestyle skiing.

There is a lot of behind-the-scenes work going on to make the upcoming season exciting and fun for everyone, a Mt. Washington Freestyle Ski Club spokesperson said.  This past season was awesome with a ton of snow and a very successful BC Champs on Mount Washington.

Remember all that snow? The course was obliterated by a massive dump of snow just before this major event and a ton of volunteers along with Mount Washington put it back together in record time. “That is what freestyle is all about and Mount Washington is the place to do it. Our mandate is to have fun and lots of it,” the MWFC spokesperson said.

The MWFC 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 offers programs such as Competitive, Development, Slopestyle and beginning Freestyle Bumps and Jumps.  The 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. Our programs provide each skier with the necessary skills, (physical, mental and technical) to achieve their goals and dreams. Want to challenge yourself to a competition or two? We provide opportunities for freestyle skiers to experience various levels of competition on Mount Washington and other mountains,” stated the spokesperson.

MWFC is putting on a Christmas camp for new and returning freestyle skiers on Dec. 27-28. It is an affordable and fun activity to get a good start to the season with the guidance of excellent and dedicated coaches.

Early registration/gear swap for new and returning skiers is set for Nov. 17 at the Comox Valley Sports Centre from 12 to 2 p.m.  Coffee, tea, doughnuts, and juice boxes provided.

 

Keep checking the calendar on the club website, www.mwfc.ca, to stay up to date with activities and events. For e-mail inquiries: mountwashingtonfreestyle@gmail.com.
