Connecting talented young athletes with the opportunity to achieve their dreams or at the very least, ski sick lines and throw cool tricks. We are not a ski school. We are not racers. We are simply freeskiers with professional portfolios, industry connections, and a passion to see our sport progress through the development of the next generation of riders.
We work with youth who have the mental and physical abilities to tackle the next level of riding. These are athletes who feel unchallenged by the typical ski school format, who may want to train competitively, who dream of sponsorships and photo ops, or who simply want to push themselves.

Northwest Freeride Programs (NWF) focuses on Alpental in the winter while also supporting athletes who are involved in the IFSA competitive curcuit through the US and Canada. Alpental Freeride runs using the same model and the same vision. Alpental has some of the most challenging backcountry in Washington State as well as some of the steepest inbounds skiing. This venue is ideal for exposing riders to the backcountry experience. Alpental Freeriders also have opportunities to train at the best park in the state at Summit Central.
Riders are coached and mentored by professional athletes on some of the best terrain and stand out park features. Click here to get your jib on and to check out what Alpental Freeride has to offer. It is never too late to join us for a drop-in day throughout the season, even if you're not from Washington.
We're not just looking for the next pro. We welcome all rippers who share our passion and want to grow as riders.
