FUNdamentalz introduces freestyle terrain and skills in fun and safe progressions for entry level skiers. Sunday afternoons are spent discovering new abilities on the slopes of Canyon Ski Resort in a program that is all about fun. FUNdamentalz is a Freestyle Canada grassroots developmental program, which focuses on allowing athletes to develop their basic freestyle ski skills. It also provides kids with the opportunities to learn and develop their all around ski skills, which are necessary for navigating runs on their own.

Our coaches are trained and passionate about developing well-rounded, confident skiers. Our goal is to show kids their potential and kindle a passion for the sport of freestyle skiing. Along with developing freestyle ski skills, athletes also learn to respect the terrain on which they train and the etiquette required when skiing. And yes, the rumours are true – there is definitely candy on the slopes.

Program Objectives:

  • To provide young skiers with a FUN and challenging introduction to the FUNdamentalz skills of skiing and each of the disciplines of Freestyle;
