Castle Mountain Freestyle Club
Castle Mountain Freestyle
on-hill ski club is the club for kids who love to ski & want to improve.
Our club promotes a safe, positive and fun environment for skill development
and it encourages young athletes to go as far as they want both in the sport
and in life.
Mtn Freestyle (formerly Wild West Freestyle) offers the best club venue for a
mountain freestyle club in Alberta. We have both a designated air and
mogul site that's closed to the general public. These venues provide us with an
excellent training site for our kids so they can safely progress their jumps
and skiing style.
