Freestyle and freeride are all about self-expression, and the exceptional coaches of the Diamond Dogs have created a nationally competitive team focussed on developing the skills needed to succeed in professionally judged competitions and beyond. Founded in 1993, the Diamond Dogs is Sugarbush's freestyle program, competing in moguls, slopestyle, and big mountain events.
The goal of the Diamond Dogs is to improve freestyle skills and prepare for a future in competition. The philosophy of the team is 'Great Skiers and Riders Make Great Freestylers.' As such, a great deal of training is dedicated to utilizing all the terrain Sugarbush has to offer, rounding out its members' skills by spending time in the trees, steeps, groomers, and anywhere else with the conditions and terrain to match their goals.
All Diamond Dogs should be advanced to expert all-mountain skiers or riders comfortable with being coached in bumps, rails, and airs. Diamond Dogs must have a Sugarbush All Mountain Pass. Diamond Dogs receive a 20% cafeteria food discount for use on program weekends. Team meets from 8:45-3pm, and trains out of it's clubhouse at Mt Ellen (except the first 2 weekends of December).
