Focus: Standing sideways and having all the Fun. Our amazing coach's goal is to provide a safe environment to learn new tricks and skills either in the park, on jumps and rails, around the mountain smashing POW or sending it deep on the landing bag. Riders looking to join this crew MUST be able to confidently ride BLUE runs on both edges in all conditions. This program is intended to develop and refine skills in a structured and safe manner, and it is not aimed at preparing for competitions - but rather learning new things and riding with friends! Creating friends and snowboarders for life is our goal! Competition opportunities could be available to riders looking for that opportunity.
Riders will acquire more advanced riding and jumping skills and learn a variety of tricks and maneuvers, safely and efficiently. Coaches are trained and certified through the Freestyle Canada Coaching courses to develop skills around the mountain and in the Slopestyle/Terrain Park.
*Note that as applicable there will be additional costs for athletes such as competition registrations, competition coaching, extra camps, and dryland training.

Focus: Performance based program to develop and support competitive snowboarders through a dedicated program aimed at optimizing technical and athletic development, with targeted goals and events.
This program is designed to support the needs of a dedicated freestyle/slopestyle athlete who wants to learn, grow, compete and advance in any of the sport's disciplines (Slopestyle, Boardercross, banked slalom). Typically, the program will run every Saturday and Sunday,(optional Fridays in January) throughout the winter and ideally will be integrated with off-season technical training into a yearly plan to optimize technical development.
This program will include some physical training as part of every daily training session. Additional training may be organized during the year to optimize participation in certain competitions and/or camps.
Increased training volume is needed at this stage to optimize each athlete’s long-term potential and to safely acquire the competency to perform more difficult technical skills.
This is the highest level snowboard program offered by Apex Freestyle, designed for motivated young snowboarders ages 12 and up, that want to take their skills to the next level. Skiers enrolled in this program will be encouraged to participate in BC Snowbord series events as well as community events like the Neil Edgeworth Banked Slalom and the Rattlecat Cup.
For athletes not participating in any given competition, alternate training plans will be made.
All athletes will have access to the Apex Freestyle Terrain Area AFTA which is a development initiative between Apex Mountain Resort and the Apex Freestyle Club. It exists to provide training and competition opportunities for the sport of freestyle and all of its athletes.
These facilities are possible because of the dedication and generosity of Apex Mountain Resort along with the countless volunteer hours and funding initiatives of the Apex Freestyle Club and include:
