Pennsylvania Freestyle Ski Association (PFSA), also known as PA Freestyle, is a non-profit youth sports organization (501c Public Charity) dedicated to the coaching and training of freestyle & freeride athletes. Our vision is to provide the best possible training environments and atmosphere where athletes can strive to achieve their goals, from elite competitors to recreational enthusiasts.  Regardless of the individual’s goals PA Freestyle is devoted to the improvement of each individual athlete, to foster personal and team pride, to strengthen each athlete’s moral character and to build lasting friendships and the love of outdoor activities.  EIN 45-5595138

PA Freestyle training sessions are held every weekend on Saturday and Sunday starting shortly after the opening of the ski resort and concluding in March, conditions permitting.  Morning session is from 9AM - 11AMAfternoon session is from 12noon - 2pm.  Head coaches and the director can make changes to the times depending on good or bad weather.  The PA Freestyle group meeting area is in front of the ski lodge at 9AM sharp, and also after lunch at noon. 

Each competitor will be required to specify which category of freestyle they will attend most often, moguls, slopestyle, snowboarding or development team. This insures that we will have the required amount of coaches, however athletes will be able to switch day-to-day if there is room in that training group, at the description of the head coaches and director. 

Holiday Camp is included with membership.  Full and half day sessions are arranged around the holiday schedule for athletes that will be on the mountain during the time off.

We take great pride in developing strong well rounded skiers and boarders in the safest possible training environments. Our athletes will train everywhere on the mountain, from the mogul course, to the terrain park, to groomers. 

Moguls training will typically be set up in a mogul field or course and will usually include an inline jump site. Slopestyle and Snowboard training will typically be held in one of the parks or pipes.

All training is subject to change based on weather, conditions and resort management.  PA Freestyle has set up a notification text to all those who sign up for it.  This allows coaches to send out a notification text as to any venue changes to parents and athletes real-time.
We train athletes between 8-18, with younger ages accepted upon an on-snow tryout and invitation.

All athletes are required to be USSA members and must wear a USSA approved snow sports helmet. For athlete’s personal safety, each skier or rider, must be able to demonstrate to coaching staff that they can traverse the entire mountain, including all slopes, trails, terrain parks and lifts, comfortably and safely and without assistance, regardless of snow or weather conditions. 

Registration begins in the fall, however athletes may sign up at any time during the season. For information on joining the program mid-season, or scheduling a tryout, please contact the Team Director.
