The Lake Louise All Mountain Ski Club is for aspiring big mountain skiers ages 10 – 18. The club was started in 2012. Since then, our athletes have consistently been on the podium in the Canadian Junior Freeride circuit, with a North American Champion from our club in 2016.
Our primary goal is to instil a passion for the sport of skiing and to create great all mountain skiers—technically strong, versatile, confident, and safe. Elements of freeride and slopestyle are underpinned by a strong technical ski foundation. We know many of the big mountain skiing stars come from ski racing backgrounds. Our all mountain program looks to leverage some of this technical knowledge while keeping the vibe as fun as possible.
We also aim to create a strong team culture: athletes who are supportive of each other and conscientious toward the public, ski area staff, athletes from other big mountain teams, and big mountain judges.
Ski groups are created with 3 different options for days spent on snow, and relative to ability, age, and interest in competitions. There are 4 tiers:
- Rippers 20 Day (includes optional Lake Louise Competition)
- Freeride 30 Day (includes optional Lake Louise Competition)
- Freeride Comp 30 Day (includes Lake Louise Comp + 2 other competitions)
- Big Mountain Comp 45+ (includes Lake Louise Comp + 4-5 other competitions)
