The Mammoth Mountain Freeski Team offers programs for skier’s 9yrs and up. The Freeski Team focuses on developing the skills needed to ski Mammoth’s parks and pipes while exploring the whole mountain. There are a wide variety of programs to suite all levels and ages. Whether you’re looking for a part-time program to develop your freestyle skills or have aspirations to join a US or National Team Mammoth Mountain Freeski Team has everything you will need to reach your goals.

The Freeski Team has a history of producing some of the best up and coming skiers in the world.  Since the Freeski Team originated, Team members have moved on to the U.S. and International Teams and competed at top-level international events. 

Producing top level athletes is important but what is equally important to us is developing good people and people skills. We teach and promote our athletes the life skills required to participate in society. Education, courage, discipline, accountability, integrity and teamwork are all blended into the freeski team experience. Success on and off the hill will be measured by achievements not just results.

Our coaching staff is certified through USSA and USASA; they have the knowledge and experience to help any young skier set and reach their goals. The coaches ask our athletes to work hard towards their goals but there is always time for fun. We want our athletes to enjoy what they are doing so that they want to return tomorrow, next week, and next year. We strive to develop a lifelong passion for skiing and the mountains.
