Snowboard Team Update:
The snowboard team activity is starting to ramp up as we get closer to the season. Athlete meetings and goals followed by equipment needs, the early stages of travel planning and budgeting.
We are also very excited to welcome some new athletes to the team – many of whom will uproot their lives and move to Utah for the season. It’s a huge commitment and we are stoked to have them.
We are also actively recruiting for our Young Rider group and our Big Mountain Freeride programs. If you know anyone who might be a good fit please put us in contact.
Alpine Team Update:
Between the UOP weight room, Olympus Hills Park, and multiple trails around the Wasatch range, dryland season is in full swing for most age groups. The objectives for this Fall strength and conditioning period are:
- Develop flexibility, and stamina that will minimize the risk of injury.
- Develop functional mobility and strength that lead to success on the hill.
- Develop a positive team culture before the competition season.
If you have not yet had the opportunity to come to Dryland, all athletes are welcome anytime. Check with your head coach, and team snap to see specific details for each age group.
SBSEF Dryland Camp (Oct 20-22). This is an annual event and always a great opportunity to go on some amazing hikes through some of Utah’s most surreal canyons. Space is limited so make sure to register early.
SBSEF Tuning Clinics

Fall Skills Quest Fitness Test (Churchill Junior High – Nov 9) – General physical fitness is a necessary component for elite ski and snowboard athletes. This falls SkillsQuest-Fitness assessment can help to identify potential performance deficits, as well as track long-term performance trends. Stay tuned for specific times and more information.
Freeride Team Update:
Dryland training is in full swing as we wait for the snow to fall. We are seeing great numbers at our U12/12-14 and 15-18 sessions, so please come get involved if we haven’t seen you! We know athletes are busy with extracurriculars and other sports, but we do these ski-specific workouts to make sure our ski-specific muscles are firing and ready for on-snow training in less than a few short months; if you put in the work you will see results down the road!
For those who are planners, our Holiday Camp will be scheduled for Dec 26-30. All athletes are eligible for the Holiday Camp. There will be no training Dec 21-25 and Dec 31-Jan 2.
