The Welch Village Freestyle Ski & Snowboard Team is a freestyle twin-tip and snowboard development program administered under the Midwest Sports Development League (MSDL), which provides a team and competitive venue to develop the freestyle skills of each athlete. If you’re interested in learning to grind rails or catch big air in the terrain park, with the chance to showcase your skills in a competitive environment, 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 athletes to unlock their full potential regardless of age, gender or ability. Our team is growing, and we’d love to have you be a part of it! Come out and join us and build a lifetime of friendships and confidence!
