Safe at the slopes
Levi Snow Sport Academy’s FreeRide study programme is aimed for second-degree students who are interested in freestyle and freeride and developing their skills in these. Up to 8 students can participate in the study programme at once.
You can participate in the FreeRide programme despite whether you use skis, a snowboard or telemark equipment. The coaching includes familiarising in other sports too.
The aim of the FreeRide study programme is for students to be able to versatilely practice skills required in freestyle and freeride alongside their 3-4 years of second-degree studies.
The students participating in the FreeRide study programme will participate in Suomen Hiihdonopettajat ry’s Ski Instructor Course (ski or snowboard) as well as complete workplace training (at least 25h) at Levi Ski School (paid) alongside their studies (3 years). Employment in ski instructor duties is possible alongside studies or thereafter is possible.
The main emphasis of the study programme is on safe operations in various conditions.
Training is carried out with safety at the forefront in all FreeRide entities, such as
Basics of Alpine skiing, snowboarding and telemarking
Freestyle (slopestyle, bigair, half-pipe)
Freeride (downhill / terrain)
Moving and living in nature
Climbing and rope operations
