Big Mountain Freeski

Big Mountain Freeski (BMF) & Comp Team

McCall Winter Sports Club's Big Mountain Freeski Team opens up the world of Backcountry, Big Mountain and Slopestyle skiing to athletes. Focus is on the fundamentals of skiing steeps, cliffs, chutes, jumps and rails.  Athletes will be exposed to avalanche education, backcountry travel, route-finding, winter survival, and outdoor leadership. Athletes will travel with the team to other ski areas and backcountry terrain dependent on weather and snow conditions. 

Based on coaches recommendation and athlete interest, a "COMP" team will travel to local and regional USASA & IFSA competitions. Discipline, creativity, drive and judgement are key elements of the program each and every day - and everywhere on the  mountain. Athletes will mature these characters for success with technical development of line choice, style, balance, air and fluidity.
