Higher Freeride offers an international extension to existing Australian and New Zealand freeride/slopestyle programs.

Welcome to HIGHER freeride.

Founded by Australian coaches Coen Bennie-Faull (Arc’teryx Athlete, APSI level 4) Jake Woods (APSI level 4 examiner/trainer) and Nicholas Higginson (APSI level 3 & qualified Secondary school teacher).

Our aim is to create the pathway to help young athletes transition from local junior freeride competitions onto the international stage. Our programs focus on the physical and psychological skills to succeed in competition and aim to cultivate training environments that build leadership skills and self-reliance in young athletes.

Kicking off in 2024 our programs will be based in Mayrhofen, Austria.

4 Week Program: January 4th – 31st
