Required Equipment
  • Skis: Recommend a twin tip, park specific ski. Ranging between 80-95mm underfoot, depending on the age/size of the athlete. Having a ski that’s closer to 95mm underfoot will allow a more versatile approach and be more comfortable skiing a variety of terrain across the mountain as well as being able to enjoy the terrain park. Having a ski that’s closer to 80mm underfoot will still allow the athlete to enjoy the entire mountain and focus on Park & Pipe however they won’t have the same stability as a slightly wider ski in off piste/variable terrain.
  • Binding Mounting: Having skis mounted 'True Centre' is highly recommended. This will allow the athlete to have complete control when skiing backwards, sliding rails/boxes and spinning off jumps. Depending on manufacturer True Centre can be a little further forward than the SKI CENTER so be sure to communicate this when having your bindings mounted. Boot Centre is considered your traditional mounting position – this is NOT recommend this for skiing the Park & Pipe. 
  • Helmet: All athletes are required to be wearing an approved Snowsports helmet during training. 
    Helmets with the MIPS Technology are highly recommended
