Rookie Academy Freestyle Courses 2012

This course is for skiers & riders at an intermediate level and feel comfortable riding most of the mountain. Enjoy 5 hours of coaching each day, both on and off snow. Snowpark offers an exceptional learning facility to give you the confidence to improve and ski & ride to your potential.

Every session is built around park etiquette, safety and of course fun. Your coach will work with you through a variety of progressions that will help you master tricks from something basic like an ollie, to spinning onto rails and over kickers.

Improve your balance, spatial awareness and co-ordination while participating in trampoline sessions. These are designed to complement the skills worked on while on snow. Watch yourself on video and compare footage to how the pros do it.

Take away evidence of your season’s park antics in the form of a DVD and certificate at the course completion. At the end of the day, if you like riding with a fun crew and want to progress your skills to new levels we can set you up in a fun learning environment.
