Far West Freestyle is the western division of the United States Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA).
We sanction, organize, finance and host amateur level freestyle ski events in, and around, the Lake Tahoe area.
Our events are held at Ski areas such as Heavenly Valley, Squaw Valley, Boreal, Sugar Bowl and Sierra at Tahoe. Athletes compete in age ranges from as young as 7 years of age up through their early 20s. We also have adults competing at a Master's level in Far West events.
Our competitive events are in Moguls, Dual Moguls, Slopestyle and Half-pipe, and Big Air.
Our events are organized by a board made up of parent volunteers from various freestyle teams. This group works with competitor teams and the USSA to schedule and organize our events.
We rely solely on the support of parent volunteers to assist with the numerous jobs required to put on a good event, which is why all parents of competitors are encouraged to volunteer.
