4 days & School Holidays - For Ski

Minimum age 8 years

Riding 4 days a week under the guidance of our head coach, this is the best North Island training available and a great stepping stone to full time training. You will call Mt Ruapehu home base but also travel for competition. Ohakune should be home base for flexibility to ride hard when it's good & focus on school & fitness when it's not. We aim for 4 days/week on snow until mid Oct. Indoor facilities will complement on snow training. Riders should have previous competitive and coaching programme experience. We will push for podiums, focusing on the SSNZ slopestyle series, NZ JR Freeride & Jr Nationals.

Weekends & School Holidays

Minimum age 8 years

This is the perfect programme for a skilled rider who wants to step things up, get themselves into competitions and start making their time on the mountain much more progressive. On snow we introduce the riders to different aspects of the sport, Freeride and Freestyle, to help each athlete find their groove. Off snow we start to introduce healthy dryland training habits and use the trampoline and foam pit to help further skiers ability when they get back on the mountain.
