What is the Rocky Competitive Series (COMP)?
Rocky Mountain Freestyle/Freeskiing offers a Competition Series (COMP Series) for age-appropriate Freestyle/Freeskiing athletes. The COMP Series program offers full USSA sanctioned competitions in moguls, dual moguls, aerials, slopestyle and halfpipe. This program requires a USSA Competitor membership and full Rocky Mountain Division membership. Competitors receive points on the USSA national points list.
The Rocky Mountain Freestyle/Freeskiing Competition Committee (RMFCC) has established the following essential principles for the freestyle and freeskiing program in order of importance:
- Safety of all competitors.
- A fun and rewarding competitive experience.
- The development of competitive freestyle and freeskiing athletes.
Competitions are organized throughout the winter season according to a pre-determined schedule that takes into consideration both Regional, National and International events, in conjunction with the USSA Points list, as outlined in the USSA Freestyle/Freeskiing Competition Guide published each season. The RMFFCC Board approves the upcoming season schedule at its annually scheduled fall meeting. Registration for the scheduled events are opened at the discretion of the RMFFCC.
Competitions are held at various ski resorts in Colorado and are published on the season schedule. Competitors are reminded that they are guests of each mountain during freestyle and freeskiing competitions. Competitor conduct is very important to the image that we project to both the skiing public and the host mountain management. All resort rules must be followed and line cutting is not allowed. The Competition Jury can disqualify any competitor from an event for violating resort rules
The Freeskiing Subcommittee is responsible for developing aerials, halfpipe and slopestyle freestyle skiing for Rocky Mountain Freestyle competitors. They establish rules suitable for these athletes, working with the ski areas to produce a schedule, set the entry fees and inform the RMFCC of the progress of the Freeskiing program.
