Ski club conducive to all levels

Come out and see what freestyle skiing is all about.

The Mount 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 B.C.’s best all-around ski programs available for all levels of freestyle skiing.

The club offers competitive, development and beginning freestyle programs. It provides a fun, safe skiing experience for competent skiers six and up. Certified training in all freestyle disciplines will give skiers a well-rounded set of skills.

The aim of programs is to provide each skier with the necessary skills — physical, mental and technical — to achieve their goals and dreams. The club provides opportunities for skiers to experience various levels of competition, and to enjoy being able to go out and rip all over the mountain.

The club has a fantastic team of coaches who share a love for skiing in a fun, positive, safe and relaxed environment.

Registration Day for new and returning skiers is Saturday, Nov. 3 at a new freestyle club cabin (the old sushi hut), at the entrance of the Hawk Chair parking lot at Mount Washington, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

For out-of-town people, registration at mwfreestyle.com

Early bird pricing ends Nov. 3.
