Hailey resident Anton Holter takes his turn on the terrain course during a free-ski progression clinic at Dollar Mountain on a sunny Saturday, Dec. 14. Dollar opened for the season last Friday. The Freeski Team is focused on improving slopestyle, halfpipe and terrain park skiing, as well as being able to ski any snow conditions. Athletes learn how to use various mental skills intended to improve performance. “These skills double as tools for navigating life,” Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation coach Gui Brown said. “Freeskiing is all about pushing the boundaries while expressing oneself. Most importantly, it connects us to nature and begins a dialogue about gratitude. We had a great weekend of training.”
