Freeski

Freeski at MSA emphasizes free skiing. Our freeskiers compete in both USASA and USSA Eastern Division Events. These are precursors to the USASA Nationals, the USSA Revolution tour, and the Junior Nationals. Our program trains at Mount Snow’s Carinthia Mountain face, the only one of its kind in the East.

We aim to create skiers who tackle the park and the pipe with the wisdom of fierce competitors and the joy of athletes out to have a great time. Mount Snow’s Carinthia is a major draw for Freeskiers and Snowboarders. Carinthia is Vermont’s only all freeride mountain face. Skiers and riders can choose from approximately 125 freeski features scattered around 12 full terrain parks. A tree-skiing area, a superpipe with 18-foot walls, a mini-pipe with 8-foot walls, an all-natural park without manmade material, and a big air site are featured. The parks and pipes manager is a nationally recognized and respected freeski terrain designer. Carinthia was rated by Snowboarding Magazine as one of the top five parks in the East.
