FreeRide Club Expands Kids Prorgramme for Coming Season
On average SnowKidz Organisers see significant results from their events within three seasons. This prompts many Organisers to expand their activities. However, every now and then these expansions take place faster.
Headed by Zoltán Székely and based in Hungary, FreeRide Club are local ski club dedicated to making snow sports fun for kids. The club joined SnowKidz in October 2016 and quickly registered their first events. That season saw three events all taking place at their local mountain, Síaréna Eplény. The events were deemed a success and the season after the club expanded from three to five events. This time however the events took place at three different locations, Síaréna Eplény (HUN), FreeRide Club Sipalya (HUN) and Turracher Höhe (AUT). Now, for the 2019/2020 season, the club has once again expanded and will host six events.
Club President Zoltán Székely commented “FreeRide Club was founded 10 years ago, in order to promote snow sports in Hungary. The club‘s founders are former ski racers and highly educated ski instructors who work together to build an ethusiastic community. Our motto is; adventure - experience - community”.
Each of the FreeRide Club events belong to a tour called the Hómenők Kupa. At each stop of the tour, events cater to both experienced and beginner skiers. For experienced skiers there is a fun race course with prizes and for beginners skiers there are free lessons. All activities are conducted under the watchful eye of trainers and best of all, all participants receive discounted lift passes, diploma and prizes.
FIS Bring Children to the Snow Coordinator Andrew Cholinski commented “seeing clubs expand because of successful events is one of the best bi-products of SnowKidz. Congratulations to FreeRide Club, their members and partners. We look forward to continuing to work with them.”
