Skiers and boarders looking to step it up into the Freestyle world can enroll in a brand new program that will teach the foundation freestyle skills with an emphasis on good technical skiing/riding in the following areas: free skiing/riding, the terrain park, moguls for skiers and all mountain freestyle for boarders. The Freestyle Program is a 10-class course on Sunday’s beginning January 8, 2012, for only $185 per person.
