freeride
 n.— «Welcome to skiing’s “new school.” All-mountain ability, terrain-park and half-pipe tricks and a dash of big mountain—formerly known as “extreme” skiing—mash together to create a new style of skiing chock-full of appeal to young, aggressive athletes. “Freeride,” as it’s called, opened skiing’s traditional roots of racing and leisure to a more independent, innovative style.» —“Young athletes take skiing ‘new school’” by Matthew Beaudin Daily Camera (Boulder, Colo.) Jan. 29, 2005.
