Youth Freeski Academy is a certified by the Freeride World Tour Academy advanced freeride ski & snowboard training program for adolescents aged 14-18. It takes place in the Mt. Parnassoson five Sundays and is focused on learning and completing advanced off-piste freeride techniques and safety issues.

The Academy's priority is to provide proper education and information to promote ski education so that participants can 'dive deep' with knowledge and safety into the new but at the same time demanding activity of freeride.

The educational program is led by Yiannis Kotileas and Kostis Papadakakis, professionals and pioneers in the field, with long experience and strong scientific background.

Youth Freeski Academy is designed for adolescents aged 14-18.

The training content that the Academy covers is:

  • Completion of the descent technique of alpine skiing
  • Off-piste training techniques (fresh snow, tree-lined area, steep slopes, frozen terrain, bumps, crusts)
  • Practice freestyle jump techniques
  • Education on snow safety and avalanche safety
  • Orientation
  • Read map and weather observation
  • Analysis and familiarization with the equipment
  • Many freeride descents

Location:

Having years of experience in education, we have chosen the mountain range of Parnassos as the most suitable place for conducting the Academy. The variety of terrains as well as the choices on different slopes make it ideal to implement a comprehensive training program.

Our experience has shown us that in skiing, any desired goal is achieved through systematic occupation rather than occasional short-term lessons.

This knowledge led us to form many long-term and group lessons. It is a learning system that maximizes the  fraction of benefit / cost, since while it increases the teaching hours, it proportionally reduces the cost of each participant.

Youth Freeski Academy will take place on the mountain of Parnassos on the following dates:

19/01/2020
02/02/2020
16/02/2020
23/02/2020
01/03/2020
The program may be modified based on weather conditions.

  • Trainers' fees
