About Freestyle Ski

We see thee rise. And rise. And rise.

Featuring events such as moguls, aerials, and the always exciting big air, the sport of freestyle skiing has quickly become synonymous with Canadian success. Freestyle skiing began as an exhibition event in 1988, before joining the Olympic program in 1992 and remaining on it ever since. Half-pipe and slopestyle first appeared in 2014. Canada has won 25 Olympic medals, 12 of which are gold.

Freestyle skiing made its Canada Winter Games debut in 1995, and has always featured female and male events. Notable alumni include Olympic medalists Chloe Dufour-Lapointe, Jennifer Heil, and Cassie Sharpe.

Located in the neighbouring province of New Brunswick, Crabbe Mountain is home to the largest vertical descent in the Maritimes and offers some of the best terrain in Atlantic Canada. Crabbe Mountain was first skied in the spring of 1959 when three explorers cut the first trail on the mountain, Tippy Canoe. The early trails known as Tippy Canoe, Little Brave and War Dance recognized First Nations people.
