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
  • Holiday Camp

June 23, 2020 -- SBSEF 2020-2021 Freeride & Alpine Registration is OPEN

Good Afternoon SBSEF families!

Our 2020-21 Season Programs are online and ready for your registration. Please see the attached letter, and read through this email, for important updates and key information to make registration easy.

We continue to have a cap on our team numbers, so register early. We will not be advertising that our registration is open on social media until July -- so you get first chance to sign up.

Our program website pages have been updated with this season's information. Of course, some things are still undecided due to the events of the world, such as athlete shuttles and devo lunches, but as we have answers, we will update everyone.

Be sure to take the time to update your family and athlete profile in your SBSEF account. A large red box will hinder your ability to see some functions on the registration website until you update this information, it will go away when you update. Part of the update includes important medical information the staff should know about your athlete. Please include allergies, important medications, and diagnoses that you feel we should know about. If there is a special medical concern, please contact the head coach directly via email.

Renew your USS&S membership. See the attached letter for details.

New this year: Freeride National Team - you need a code to register for this level of Program, and Siri has that code. Contact Siri BEFORE you start registering, or you will get all the way through and not be able to complete your registration without the code, we don't want you frustrated. (siri@sbsef.com)

Devo Transition team - the same thing, we have a code set up so just those that are recommended for this program register. If you need a code, email Jason (jason@sbsef.com).

Tuition prices have not increased for this season. Work deposits have been re-evaluated and adjusted to match the training days of the athlete, so a few have gone down by $100. More WRA/WD opportunities are being developed, and if you have a suggestion, let us know! A $500 deposit is required with your program registration, or you have the option to pay in full. Credit Card fees will be applied to payments at check out. To avoid this 3% processing fee, please check out and pay with eCheck. It is simple and saves you and the team money. If you would like to use your credit card to pay for tuition in full, we will credit back the processing fee to your athlete account, to be used for camps/events/races/travel (credits only, no refunds). A $500 deposit is required with your program registration, or you have the option to pay in full. 

Have questions? Feel free to contact me! I can walk you through the registration process and help you decide between programs or get you in touch with the head coaches with your questions. All team pages have links to email the head coaches, feel free to reach out to them with program-specific questions.  Forgot your password to your SBSEF account? You can reset it yourself from the login screen, look to the left, and click the "password reset" button.
