The Welch Village Freestyle Ski & Snowboard program is a 6 week progressive program designed for youth who are looking to develop their freestyle ski or snowboard skills in the terrain park. If you’re interested in learning to grind rails or catch big air in the terrain park, this program is for you! We have a dedicated staff of highly experienced freestyle skiers and snowboarders who can teach you anything from the basics to the more difficult advanced level tricks as you progress in ability. We strive to deliver a fun, safe, learning environment for all participants to unlock their full potential. In addition to skiing and snowboarding in the terrain park, this lesson program will also include time spent on other natural terrain featured runs at Welch Village like 'Ski Bob' to further advance participants all around skiing/riding skills.
Participants must be between the ages of 8-17. Age is determined by birth date on the date of registration. All participants must be strong intermediate skiers/riders and must be able to ride the rope tow and chairlift without the assistance of an adult. All participants are required to wear helmets at all times.
The Welch Freestyle Team is a 6 week program. All practice sessions will be held in the Welch Village Terrain Park, and a lift ticket will be required for each participant (not included in the coaching fee; must be purchased separately). The Welch Village Freestyle Ski & Snowboard program does not participate in any away competitions/events. The team will practice on 6 non-consecutive Sundays from 12:30PM-3:30PM. Participants are encouraged to eat lunch before practice. Rarely does Welch Village close for weather reasons. If for some reason the ski area is closed due to a weather event, the make-up session will be used. Make up sessions are also not available due to sickness or any other conflict.
