Team Description

2020-2021 Freeride AltaBird Devo Team:

The AltaBird Freeride Devo Team Program provides an opportunity for young athletes who have gained the necessary fundamental skills while on our Snowbird Alpine Devo Team, to receive access to train at Alta and Snowbird and ski with a group of other athletes that have strong skills and goals. Athletes on this team have goals to compete in Freeride Big Mountain competitions, to excel their current abilities as a big mountain skier, and to want to explore both Alta and Snowbird through hiking and skiing more challenging lines. This team will have more focus on off-pieced skills, competition, and air awareness. AltaBird Freeride Devos will develop a love for skiing while learning to ski all-mountain terrain and snow conditions.

Coaching focus will include:

  • Proper body movement, balance & edge control
  • Fundamental progression of skills 
  • How to ski safely in all types of terrain from moguls, trees, groomers, and steeps
  • How to ski all types of terrain confidently
  • Having so much FUN! 

Athlete Age: 11-13

Athlete Experience: The minimum skill level is to be able to ski confidently and fluidly on "black" off-trail terrain at both Alta and Snowbird. 

  • Skiing confidently and with endurance
  • Ski top to bottom, off-piste and groomed
  • Skiing with the parallel skis 
  • Understand safety rules and mountain etiquette

*All new athletes must take part in the try out day to determine if this program is the best fit for your athlete. Tryouts will take place at the end of November. Athletes that don’t possess the proper skill level may be moved to a different group and/or program within SBSEF.  If a different group is unavailable, we will do our best to help find you another program that will be a fit. 

Competition and Events: The AltaBird Freeride Devo athletes have the opportunity to compete in Snowbird Competitions, as well as other competitions in the surrounding area. This competition schedule will be made through a meeting with the athlete, parents, and coach to ensure that the athlete is attending the correct competitions for their goals and skill level.

Program includes:

  • On snow training Saturday and/or Sunday, December - March
