I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the sunshine. Just a quick email to update and inform everyone what is happening in the Yukon Freestyle world.

Congrats to all of our Dev team athletes. Great job at Canada Winter Games!!!! We are very proud of you all.

Fundamentals athletes: Awesome job skiing this season. You have all learned so much and are on the road to be amazing skiers. You should have gotten your report card on March 5th, the last day of training. We hope you had a blast with our coaches and we will see you at Yukon champs and back next season.

Jr. and Sr. Freestylers, you still have one more training weekend on-snow (April 1 & 2) with Steven Harlow (I will have this confirmed by Saturday March 18). You will receive your report cards on your last day of on-snow training. Trampoline is scheduled to continue March 27th through to April 27th, with March 29th being cancelled. Please see the calendar on the website or the photo below. We hope to see you all out at Yukon champs to showcase your new and improved ski skills and tricks.

Yukon Champs registration is now open to our current athletes. We have a slopestyle day (pokey park & lower park) and a big air day (1st medium of upper park). Yukon champs is meant for all levels (Fundamentals through to the dev team), so please sign your athlete up and come out and volunteer or watch. It's a fun weekend filled with great tricks.

NOTE: The younger athletes that don't want to hit the 1st medium for the big air are able to use the knuckle of the medium instead of the jump.

Registration is open to our current athletes from March 14th to March 24th. On March 20th, registration opens to the public. There are limited registration spots available for Yukon champs, due to the coach:athlete ratio, so please register your athlete soon. Yukon champs will have a club category for our season athletes and an open category for the public. There are lots of medals/trophies and prizes to be won!!!

Please see the attached Yukon champs poster, schedule and bio form below. Register online via the YFSA website.

Good Day parents, camper and coaches,

You have signed your athlete up for Week 1 of Spring Break camp with Yukon Freestyle. Thank you and I hope your athlete is excited to start shredding. The two main coaches are Lyndsey, Chris and Luke (on Monday) with two of our developmental athletes assisting the coaches, Dash and Jacob. Camp starts at 10 am and runs until 4 pm. You can drop your athlete off at 930 am, but not earlier. Please make sure your athlete arrives at least 15 minutes prior to 10AM so they are ready to be on the snow by 10AM. If your athlete will be late or will not be at camp, please make sure to text your athletes coach to let them know. Should your athlete arrive late, please have them wait at the bottom of the hill for their coach. The camp finishes at 4 PM, but often the athletes are still making their way down the slopes, but please make sure you or whoever is picking up your athlete are there on time, as the coaches are not expected to stay after 4 PM. Freestyle ski camp runs from Monday, Mar 13th to Thursday, Mar 16th. Yukon Freestyle has a lunch room at Mt. Sima for our athletes to use during the camp days. The athletes are able to put their bags in the trailer, eat and warm up in the trailer. There is a microwave as well, so the athletes can heat up their lunches. There is no running water and no bathroom in the trailer, so athletes will need to use the lodge for this. Athletes are encouraged to bring lunch to camp, as the lunch line is normally busy and coaches will not be waiting for athletes that are buying lunches. Mt Sima has also asked that our athletes not use the lodge to eat in, as there is a limited capacity within the lodge on spring break. Please remind your athlete to clean up after themselves when in the lunchroom. The Freestyle lunchroom located next to the staff lodge at Mt. Sima. You can’t miss it, it’s an ATCO trailer that looks like it's in the parking lot. When dropping your athlete off, please park at the back of the trailer, and not by the entrance, as this is sima staff parking and you may be towed. What to bring to freestyle ski camp:

  • Ski’s (twin tip)

  • Poles

  • Helmet

  • Ski Boots

  • Warm outside gear

  • Extra Mittens

  • Hand and feet warmers

  • Lunch, snacks and water

  • Lift pass

Coaches contacts (Please be mindful and respectful that the coaches are busy people and are coaching on a part-time bases for YFSA) Chris - (867) 687-3267 Lyndsey - (867) 689-8441 Jacob - (867) 333-2090 Dash - (867) 332-7915 Thanks so much and I hope your athlete is super excited.
