Clayton is a former Freestyler who is excited to get into his second season of Coaching for Castle Freestyle. Clayton did a wonderful job last year with the youngest of our athletes and is often found walking through the lodge with at least two or three of them hanging off of him, having the time of their lives. Claytons focus is to ensure fun and proper ski form for all our little athletes. 

Attention ALL Freestylers!! Are you retiring, moving on from Competitive Skiing or just want to gain some valuable life experience? 

Castle Freestyle Ski Club is looking for some awesome individuals to coach our team programs for the 2016/2017 season. As coaches progress in certifications we require new fresh coaches to help with our Jumps & Bumps program. 

Great pay with hill pass and more! We will provide training and certification through AFSA and will help you grow your skills as a mentor and Coach. 

​If you are good with kids and have a passion for Freestyle, consider Castle Freestyle Coaching!! Contact Darren Taylor,, 403-862-0421for more information. 

Xavier david

​Competitve Team Coach

Xavier is a former Southern Alberta Freestyle athlete. In his final year of mogul
competition, turned down a spot on the Alberta Mogul Team to study
Kinesiology at the University of Lethbridge. ­­­

Xavier has been coaching for Castle Mountain Freestyle the past 4 seasons with jumps and bumps athletes. He has seen many of them improve tremendously over the past few years. When he is not on the ski hill you can find him trying different foods like chicken feet,
escargot, dinuguan and cow tongue.

I am looking forward to be working with young skiers and developing confidence in their abilities on the snow in the upcoming season.
