Our instructors are trained to help beginners experience a great first day – a satisfying experience that will leave you wanting more. And if you’ve already got your snow legs, our instructors can guide you to the steepest black diamonds for the free-ride of your life.
Our freestyle program will teach you how to spin, ollie, ride boxes and all of the other fun things you can do in the park. Our teaching style takes you step-by-step through the skills you need to have fun on the mountain in a safe way. We create groups of students with similar skill levels, believing that learning is more exciting as a group. Plus it’s fun to share experiences on the way down the mountain at the end of the day.
The Freedom Riders teaching process and program is highly individualized. Each rider’s skills are tracked in their own personalized Riders’ Report, which helps instructors understand and track the rider’s progress, challenges and competencies. This way, the transition between instructors and levels is seamless and riders advance to the level they aspire to, with the help, knowledge, and experience of Gilad Lewandovski – Program Director & Level 3 snowboard instructor.
Gilad has been snowboarding since 1994, and has been an instructor since 1996. He graduated from one of the first snowboarding-instructor courses in Madonna di Campglio – in the Italian Dolomites. Gilad has been sponsored by Burton snowboards and is dedicated to the snow sport industry. Although he rides both mountains and waves, Gilad finds the greatest and most rewarding challenge is working and mentoring young riders, inspiring them with his passion for action sports and living a true and healthy life.
