Freestyle Skiing is an amazing fast paced sport, with the goal to ski down the mogul field as fast as possible while maintaining control. Performing aerials, skiers flip and twist off jumps.

Although trampolining is not the focus of their sport, it can help to improve their skills in training. It gives more time to work on technique and concentrate on perfecting that nice rotation.

More airtime also helps to increase acrobatic awareness, while also increasing the ability for repetitions with the soft landing.

So, if you’ve got a facility for snowsports and want to give your athletes the best chance to work on their take off or twisting mechanics, then why not add a trampoline to your facility?  

How To Choose The Best Trampoline For Freestyle Skiers…

There are a few things you need to know about, but we’re here to help guide you through the process.

Choosing the right trampoline can be daunting if your knowledge on trampoline equipment is limited. We are trampoline specialist and we’re here to help explain the differences and help you make the right choice for your facility.

Think About Your Location…

There are many models of trampolines. The first thing to think about is the location. Will you be using it inside or outside?

If you are using it outside we would recommend to buy a trampoline that has been made for this purpose. PVC coating on the trampoline jumping beds and hot dip galvanised frames, help to make them last longer when kept outside.

Think About The Age And Ability Of The Users…

Trampoline models vary in height and surface area. If your users are teenager or above, then  they will need a larger surface area to train on.

The trampoline jumping beds vary in performance depending on the version you choose. The measurements given for the jumping beds refers to the thickness of the webbing. The thinner the webbing, the more powerful rebound the trampoline gives.
