Silver Run added the free ride team as a program option in 2011, and it has been a hit since then. If you want to rip the trees, chutes, moguls, steeps, and terrain park on skis, this is your program! Join other strong skiers aged 7-18 to learn skills for off-piste skiing and tricks on the jumps. The training season starts in October with dry land conditioning, and continues throughout the season. We train every Saturday. The goal is to send athletes to competitions, but just weekly training is OK too. Options for several field trips to nearby areas with a coach are available. The cost for the season is $625 (or $615 if paid before Nov. 1), and includes preseason conditioning and a camp at Christmas.
