This just in- Jamie Goldman will be the head celebrity coach for Session 1 and 2. Goldman has a long history in freeride, competing in the biggest contests in the world! He brings his burly, powerful tricks and easygoing personality, making him one of the favorite coaches at Ayr Academy!

Aaron Chase is a name well associated with Highland Mountain and Ayr Academy! Chase makes the move from his home in New Jersey every summer to ride, train and coach at Highland. We caught up with AC last month to see what he’s been up to and check-out his off-season training routine. Ride with AC during Session 3 from July 28th – August 3rd. Keep up with Aaron on his Facebook page.
