Central Freestyle

Freestyle & freeride program for youth and teens ages 7+

Might as well call it what it is: Central Freestyle was previously Central FreeRide. This 8 week program is not your typical ski or snowboard lesson, it boasts high quality coaching from some of the best freestyle coaches in the business.

Groups have fun in both natural terrain and our terrain parks, and discover if you might be a future action sports star. If you want to spend time in Central Park and Greenhorn Acres expanding your bag of tricks, this is the right program for you! We recommend renting or buying a pair of freestyle skis or snowboard and grab a helmet as you rush to Central for the best eight weeks ever!

Central Freestyle Assistant Coach - Saturdays

Freestyle Assistant Coaches must be enrolled in the Central Freestyle U18 program as well. This program is an add-on to the Central Freestyle program designed to continue development and open the doors to coaching as an adult. The connections, skills, coaching, and experience gained in this program are not only inspirational and fun, but will look good on your resume and college essays, and will lead towards professional certifications in USSA and or IFSA Freeride.  Plus, you will have a distinct advantage in your job interview when you want to come and work for us (or any other mountain). This program is designed to take elite athletes who are trying to become professionals and develop the insight and tool kit needed to make it happen. The best of the best in the most dynamic, cutting edge program in the Northwest!

Snowboarding slots are limited.  Priority will be given to second year Central Coaches Assistant, West Coaches Assistant, and Alpental Leadership Program Graduates and select athletes out of the Central Freestyle U16 program. Includes Big S Unlimited Season Pass, program attendance required to maintain pass privileges.
