We continuously strive to be the most affordable alpine ski program in Whistler. With this in mind, we will be offering parents the option to pay program fees via INTERAC e-transfer to save on credit card processing fees.
Parents have the option to send either the full program fee amount or monthly instalment via e-transfer offline or online via the SnowReg payment system. For offline payments, parents will receive an invoice from our Quickbooks account when payment is due. The system online will automatically charge the card on file on the original transaction date then the following 5 instalments will occur on the first of each month.
At any point during the registration process, if you are stuck or something isn’t working properly, please email Chris, our Executive Director, for help!
Please read this registration guide in full. Payment options are available at the bottom of the page.
***You can cancel your registration at any time before November 15th and receive a full program refund minus $25 administration fee. If you cancel between Nov 15th and December 3rd, you will receive a full program refund minus a $250 administration fee.***

- A $100 volunteer levy for the Winter 22/23 season will be applied to your registration fee for all season-long programs with the ability to earn it back through volunteering for 5 hours this season. Club has been incurring extra costs each season for jobs/duties that volunteers could easily be doing. This levy is meant to encourage volunteerism.

Fundraising and helping out with competitions and events will also earn you hours. Ask us how you can volunteer to help and get your levy back. Our volunteer opportunities will be on our website in November.
Sea to Sky Pass:
Whistler Blackcomb offers Freestyle Whistler Club Members the option to purchase the Sea to Sky Student Pass. Parents who need this pass for their child are asked to check the box on registration. All athletes indicating that they require one will be added to the list submitted to WB. Parents are then asked to call WB Guest Services once an email has been sent out confirming that they are available for purchase. 21/22 price was $459 +GST. The 22/23 Pass price is still TBD, we will let our members know as soon as it is available.
We are currently waiting on Freestyle Canada and Freestyle BC for the winter 2022 competition details. Once they become available we will update this section as well as update members via email.
As a not-for-profit organization, fundraising is part of the Freestyle Whistler operational budget. We appreciate and encourage your support during the season with our operational fundraising efforts to continue to keep our program fees accessible and to support the long-term legacy of our club and the newly built Gemini Freestyle Centre.
We are actively looking for corporate partners. Donations over $10,000 will be credited with a tax receipt.
Inclement Weather Policy:
If training sessions must be canceled due to unforeseen circumstances such as weather, emergency, road, or facility closure. Freestyle Whistler reserves the right to choose make-up options; provide refunds or credit accounts to be used for programs within one year.
Athletes in the All Mountain and Big Mountain Freestyle programs require twin-tip skis, poles, helmets, goggles. A second pair of skis is not necessary but mogul skis (if you can find them) are recommended for mogul training.
We recommend that Development and Performance athletes have a second pair of skis (identical to the pair being used day to day) so that if a ski or binding breaks they can resume training. We have a locked area for athletes to store spare equipment.
Note: Athletes must have ski edges intact to be able to use the Airbag Facility. Broken edges rip the bag material rendering it not useable for training.
Our refund policy runs on a quarterly schedule. Participants will receive 75% by withdrawing before December 20th, 50% before February 6th, 25% before March 6th. No refunds will be given after the March 6th date.
