Competitive Free Ride-Style-Ski
2022 - 2023
Head Coach: John Kimble
Whether it is to compete for the first time or to make regular trips to the podium around the country, the Gould Academy Competition Program for Freestyle, Freeskiing and Freeride has the dedicated coaches and training facilities to help student-athletes achieve their athletic and academic goals.
Our freestyle mogul skiers compete as US Ski and Snowboard members in regional and national competitions. Freeskiing competitors follow the USASA, Futures, and Revolution tours series, and any other event/rail jam we can find.
When it comes to Gould freeride skiers, it is all about finding turns in the woods, having some fun in the park, getting after powder days, and then putting all on those pieces together for the IFSA freeride tour events.

, student-athletes benefit from a dedicated mogul course, airbag venue, and terrain parks, as well as Gould’s own on-mountain headquarters – the Kailey Competition Center.
Year-round training is tailored to each student-athlete and includes his or her off-season sport of choice including soccer, field hockey, mountain biking, lacrosse – even road cycling – supplemented with physical conditioning work in the Farnsworth Field House weight room and trampoline room.
Bumps and rails in the morning, labs and laptops in the afternoon. Student-athletes are strongly supported off the snow with dedicated teachers, faculty, and college counseling back on campus.
