This block is designed to teach children to use the features in our weekly snow parks under the watchful eye of our specialist Freestyle instructors.

Snow Factor will host a children’s Freestyle Assessment Day on Saturday 1st October.  During this assessment the successful candidates will be grouped together based on ability.

Please note that children who have not attended the assessment day will not be able to join the block.   There will be no charge for the October 1st session if the child is not of the required standard yet.

Book your child’s place at our Assessment Day, call our Customer Care Team on 0871 222 5672.  You can also email CustomerCare@snowfactor.com for further details.

Minimum Ability

Snowboard:  Riders must be able to confidently link turns from the top of the main slope. Riders may have attempted a small box or jump previously.

Ski:  Skiers must be able to confidently ski parallel with speed from the top of the main slope.  Skiers may have attempted a small box or Jump previously.

Class Size

There will be a maximum ratio of 7 children to 1 coach for both Ski and Snowboard.

Slope Features

There will be at least 2 freestyle features out on the slope each week for the class to use.  These features will be small in size and dictated by the park plan each week. The features may differ from week to week although they will always be of a similar level to Small Kicker (Jump) + Flat box or Roller + Flat-Down Box

Coaching

The coaching team consists of 8 fully qualified freestyle coaches. There will be one coach per group each week, The coaches will not always be working with the same group every week.  Please note that classes may not always be working on the features as some times it is more beneficial to work on the slope.

Feedback

Coaching is different to instructing. The Snow Factor coaches will seek to encourage more student input than on lessons and will focus on working together with each student to achieve agreed individual goals for the block. There may be weeks where individual students receive less feedback from the coach because there is seen to be more benefit from personal practise. The coaches will be filling in report cards to detail what is being worked on over the 9 weeks.
