Freestyle and Free-ride is true to the essence of skiing and snowboarding - riding around with your mates having a good time in the mountains! Everyone from complete beginners to seasoned veterans are welcome to come push their ability and progress; whether it’s learning to ride kickers, or nailing that next rotation/cork.

With this in mind on both the Christmas trip and Easter trip the Freestyle Captain will be running free sessions in the park and in the powder, for anyone wanting to come along and get some friendly advice, trick tips and pointers to help progress both off-piste and in the park!

As well as trips abroad, we provide lots of opportunities to get involved in and around Newcastle. We run regular trips to Castleford Snow-dome,  and dry slopes, at our home turf in Sunderland and weekend Kings events dotted around the North. Finally, trips to the local trampoline centre in Benfield can help refine your tricks and flips!

Ladies only nights are being pushed to help get everyone involved in this side of the sport so look out for them throughout the year!

This year there are competitions in: Big Air, Slopestyle, Rail Jam, And a Freeride comp, so whatever your preference come on down and join in!

Be sure to check out the NUSSC Facebook and Instagram to keep up to date with all that’s going on! For any more information and questions, don’t hesitate to contact our Competition Secretary Pippa Smeeton at or our Captain's Callie Rendell and Georgia Richardson at
