Athlete Mindset

“Freeriding is 80% mental and 20% physical” Reine Barkered, Freeride World Tour Champion.

Our camps go beyond hucking cliffs and skiing steeps.  Our experienced athletes and founder, Rachel Findler, will teach you the athlete mindset that will help you manage stress and fear, especially for competition day.  We want you to be the best and achieve your full potential.  Our Freeride camps teach mindset tools; visualisation techniques, relaxation techniques, breathing exercises, mindfulness and meditations.  All these techniques are used by our FWT athletes to achieve their podium positions.

During our camp in Chile we started our mornings with a meditation session helping the juniors set their mindset for the day and learn different techniques that work for them.  In the evenings we had Athlete Mindset sessions where our FWT Champions shared their insights into being professional athletes and competing on the Freeride World Tour.  Sharing stories of being resilient & adaptable, longevity as a pro athlete, how they achieved their goals, competition & backcountry safety and lots more.

What else do I need to know?

Where will we stay?  We stay in amazing locally owned lodges. We all stay together so you can hang out with FWT athletes off the hill too.  Swap ski stories over dinner while you enjoy the delicious meal our private chefs prepare for us.  Our chefs serve us breakfast to fuel you for a full day of skiing, packed lunches for the hill and 3 course dinners. (We will enjoy 1-2 dinners in the local town).

Who are the coaches? FTW Athletes & Champions.  Check each camp to see who will be coaching you.  We also work with local guides and our founder Rachel Findler will make sure all logistics run smoothly.

How many spots are there?  There are up to 20 spots, and we have junior athletes signed up from all over the world.  It’s such a great opportunity to make lifelong friends from all ski areas of the world.  We offer limited spots for IFSA register coaches so please enquire to reserve your spot!

What age and level do I need to be?  18 and under for our junior camps.  We welcome all Feeride levels. There is varied terrain and a line down for everyone.  Our camps are a great opportunity to ski off-piste/backcountry for the first time.  Or try ski touring for the first time.  Our campers this year in Chile ski toured the volcano and said it was the best day of their lives!!!

What else do I need to know?  This is going to be one of the best weeks of your life!!  Everything is taken care of as soon as you land.  We will greet you at the airport and transport you to the ski resort.  Accommodation, food, ski passes and coaching is all included for €4,900pp for France. $4,900pp for Chile.  Flights and insurance not included. For further questions please contact Rachel for an information pack on the particular trip you are interested in.

Parents! Do you have FOMO?

Why should the kids have all the fun?  We are offering a trip for parents which will run alongside our junior camp.  Check out who the athlete is on our parents trips.  TGR film star and Freeride legend, Ian McIntosh, is our pro skier in Chile 2024.  He will show you around and help you with your ski technique so you can keep up with your kids!  Stay in a beautiful lodge with a private chef, wine tasting, enjoy the resort and local culture.  Everything is taken care of so you can relax.
