Big Mountain Programs

Team Breckenridge Sports Club’s Big Mountain and Freeride Programs offer competitive level coaching for athletes who want to develop and refine their style in big mountain and terrain park riding.  Our coaches will mentor and coach athletes at practice, and in regional and national IFSA competitions.  Competition is not mandatory to join our Program, we have multiple program offerings to support your level of commitment.

We promote strong work ethic, all-mountain etiquette, sound decision-making skills, sportsmanship, creativity, and confidence.  Your athlete will learn advanced skiing skills, reading terrain to optimize line choice, air awareness and skiing smoothly in and out of difficult situations. Technical proficiencies and skill assessments will be a component of our weekly training.  We strive to create community for all athletes and hope that our programming can serve as a vehicle for life long learning.
