Eldora Mountain Ski & Snowboard Freestyle & Freeride Team (EMSC Free Team)
Build Confidence. Have Respect. Enjoy FUNdamentals
The EMSC Free Snowboard Team offers diverse programming that covers all disciplines of freeriding: slopestyle, big air, boarder cross, carve, and big mountain. This is an entry level program into the world of competitive freeriding, but all athletes joining should be competent all-mountain riders. Our team of proficient coaches help athletes expand their skills through on snow and dry land training.
Through experience and professional coaching, athletes learn to hit rails, drop cliffs, send jumps, and become a safe and experienced all-mountain rider. The EMSC Free Snowboard Team will provide the knowledge and expertise to help athletes gain the skills and confidence necessary to nail tricks with technique and style.
The team offers a variety of opportunities for aspiring freestyle and freeride athletes to learn more about the sport, advance their abilities, make new friends, and be a part of a positive team atmosphere.
Carving is one of the most important things to learn and master on a snowboard. We are introducing CARVE to the EMSC Free Snowboard Team and will have designated training times for athletes to learn and execute the proper technique to make solid carved turns on their snowboards. We will have lane space with gates and professional coaches to assist in skill progression. Carve allows more speed to be carried through the turn, helps athletes slice through bad patches without fear, and ride smoother, with finesse, rather than wrestling with the board. Carving helps athletes become better, more controlled all mountain riders no matter what discipline they decide to focus on.
Team participation gives athletes the opportunity to develop their personal riding style, learn about competing in a variety of disciplines, and identify where their true passion lies. Our certified coaches work with each athlete to help them meet season goals and prepare them to compete. More experienced athletes may already have a favorite style and spend more time training and developing their skills necessary to compete within their chosen discipline. It is highly recommended that all athletes compete in at least one competition.
