Aerial Skiing

The VIS Aerial Skiing program is a talent transfer program, recruiting athletes from an acrobatic background and teaching them to ski and jump on snow.

The program is run in partnership with the Olympic Winter Institute and Ski & Snowboard Australia, with the program identifying and recruiting athletes who have an acrobatic background, with the long term aim of developing them into World Cup and Olympic level aerial skiers. The Aerial Skiing program now has access to a year round world class training facility at the Sleeman Sports Complex in Brisbane. The program is in a great position as we head towards the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing.
