Whistler Freeride Club

About Whistler Freeride Club

The Whistler Freeride Club (WFT) is shaping the freeskiing stars of tomorrow. The group of high-performance skiers, boarders and telemarkers promote winter sports, Whistler-Blackcomb, and mountain safety. Aside from competing in events related to their sports, members of the WFT participate in the Schools on Snow talks with the Whsitler-Blackcomb Ski Patrol, teaching students about mountain safety and self-respect.

The Freeride Club coaches are experienced big mountain and Park & Pipe skiers, many of whom have competed in these disciplines, and all of them have many years of coaching experience. The coaches get children stoked to ski each weekend, improve their skiing technique and develop their big mountain and park & pipe skills. No matter what their goal – to compete, to have fun or just become the best skier on the mountain – the Freeride Club can take them there.

Proud sponsor of Whistler Freeride Club Trying Stuff since 2002.
