The freestyle sessions at Kendal are a great way to take your skiing or snowboarding to the next level. There is an excellent vibe during our freestyle /open sessions and there is no pressure to perform, just a chilled encouraging environment in which you can progress.
When Kendal’s slope was rebuilt using Snowflex, the club was quick to use the opportunity to incorporate purpose-built features for freestyle into the slope. We have a bowl up in the top corner which ends in a mini quarter pipe, next to that is the main kicker, recently re-shaped and matched to a new, steeper landing area which provides softer landings no matter how big you go! A mini kicker is alongside for those of you who want to ease in to jumping. Further down the slope a set of doubles provide an opportunity to get two lots of air in one run, and a full mogul set runs down the other side for those of that persuasion. Across on the new extension we have various sculpted terrain which is a superb aid to riding the undulations similar to a real piste (or more chances to get air on freestyle sessions)! We also have a range of mobile boxes and rail features that are put out during freestyle open sessions.
Session Times: Thursday 6-8pm, Saturday 1-3pm and Sundays 6-9pm.
Check our Prices page for current fees.
New to freestyle ? Want to give it ago but not sure where to start ? On Thursday nights 6-7pm we have our Freestyle Snowboard coaches on the slope to give you a helping hand. You don't have to be an advanced rider as long as you have mastered the fundamentals all are welcome.
