  • Freestyle Ski & Snowboard Teams

     

    BWF

    If you are interested in competitions please check out the Big White Freestyle Club.

    Big White Ski and Board School is pleased to announce the next major step for Freestyle Team participants at Big White Ski Resort.

    Big White Ski and Board School, with the parent’s dedication, has taken the Freestyle Team from its creation, to that of being a major competitor against all the other Freestyle programs in Western Canada.

    During discussions that have occurred over several seasons and began in earnest last fall, it was acknowledged by Big White and members of the Freestyle parent group that the next step in The Freestyle Team’s program evolution would be to mirror their competitors. Namely, to create a non-profit club so they can manage their direction and develop their athlete’s abilities to get them to the next level. All this takes a collection of dedicated people managing and directing the club to gain access to government funding for their athletes. Transforming the freestyle program into a non-profit club is part of the process.

    Therefore, Big White Freestyle is now an active club and is live online www.bigwhitefreestyle.com For program offerings and registration of athletes, please go to their website. Big White Ski Resort and Ski and Board School support this next step and wish the best for the athletes.
