Please see the Club Calendar or Teamsnap for COP Fall Airbag training times.

Why we do it?


To progress athlete skill development in a safe environment. Airbag/Water Ramp training with Southern Alberta Freestyle Ski Club is an essential "off season" training tool, athlete commitment and regular attendance to sessions will be directly reflected in athletes' development on snow. Water Ramp and Airbag is a lot of fun for all ages and skill levels (see below minimum skill requirement for safety).

Athletes who would like to learn to do inverts on skis and in competition are required to first qualify their new tricks on either and airbag or water ramp facility. Only once they have successfully completed the skills on trampoline will the be ready to try out the airbag/water ramp. Athletes usually require around 15 days or 50+ well executed jumps to attempt to begin the qualification process. Below is a sample of a qualification scoreform, please contact your athlete's coach for more information.
