Is Alpental Freeride The Right Fit?

Alpental Freeride is for athletes that aren't quite ready for the very high level Freeride Team focused on competition, but are skiing or riding at a level well beyond our other programs like Mighties or Central6. Athletes should be able to confidently ski or ride off-piste black diamond terrain in all conditions and all lifts at The Summit/Alpental. They should already know how to carve, ride bumps, steeps, and maintain dynamic balance in all challenging terrain. We find that most Mighties students are not ready for this program and will be shifting some of our high level ARC instructors to Mighties to help prepare skiers and riders for the next level.

Alpental Freeride is coached by the best locally grown athletes. They are all highly involved with the freeride scene and are not only extremely talented riders, but also great coaches. Look to them for knowledge, experience, and inspiration.

REPLACEMENT FOR ALPENTAL ARC: This is the program for former Alpental ARC athletes who meet the age and ability criteria, and want to continue to develop all mountain skills. We are amalgamating the two programs into one. Alpental ARC Athletes who wish to continue to pursue Alpine Racing should consider West ARC or TAS.
