Team Description

2020-2021 Freeride AltaBird Regional Team

The AltaBird Regional Team Program is geared towards fundamental skill development for athletes skiing at a high level on all-terrain at Alta and Snowbird, as well as in Regional IFSA Sanctioned Competitions. This program serves as a pipeline to the Alta/Bird National program and is perfect for athletes who have a desire to improve their big mountain skiing, get more experience skiing challenging terrain, want more air awareness, and who wish to improve their ability in competitions. The Regional Team has flexibility for athletes to compete a lot, or compete for a little, depending on the athlete’s goals; but as a whole, the team is competition centered.  This is a program that will challenge and inspire athletes to improve their skiing, and love spending time in the mountains.  

The coaching focus will include:

  • goal-oriented training
  • responsible decision making with regard to ability
  • comfort in all-mountain terrain
  • composure in a variety of conditions
  • finding/ creating an individual style 
  • competition strategy

Athlete age: 12-18

Athlete Experience: All athletes on this team must be able to ski athletically and confidently on all “black” terrain on all types of snow and variables. 

  • Ski all terrain at Alta and Snowbird
  • Be able to regularly ski 15,000+ vertical feet per day. 
  • Ski with parallel skis down the fall line in all-terrain including moguls, steeps, trees, and icy slopes.
  • Must want to compete in at least several competitions during the year

Athletes new to the program must participate in a try out day in late November to be placed in the correct group. 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. SBSEF holds the right to deny program access based on skill level.

Competition and Events:  IFSA sanctioned events

Program includes:

  • Dryland 2x weekly Sept - Nov
  • Holiday Camp
  • On-snow training 1-5 days, Opening - March

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.
