Mountain Masters
 

Willard Mountain Freestyle is focused on teaching skiers fun maneuvers in moguls and aerials in a safe environment with quality coaching.  Dan Petteys is head coach, and is USSA Certified Mogul Coach.  While the training is derived from the competition programs in the US Ski Team development track, there is no requirement to attend competitions or contests.  Any skier on the team can participate as much or as little as they wish and is welcome to all open training sessions.

In order to ensure safety and compatibility, skiers must first enter the All-Mountain program before being eligible to train with the Freestyle Team.  Freestyle lessons include training for moguls and aerials with experienced Freestyle coaches. 

If a skier is interested in competing, the competition circuit is Eastern Freestyle; a division of the United Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA).  www.easternfreestyle.org

Coaches will be available according to the schedule for at-home training and travel competitions.  At-home training will consist of utilizing the terrain at Willard to improve skills that promote advanced mogul skiing and aerial maneuvers.  Competition coaching will include assistance in becoming comfortable with everything involved in competing.  Competitions generally occur in Southern Vermont.

The purpose of the team is to offer young skiers a sport where they can:
 - Strive to succeed at something they love
 - Learn teamwork and a good training ethic
 - Have fun while making friends and enjoying the sport
