Freeride U12 Team


2023-2024 U12 Freeride Team:

The AltaBird U12 Freeride 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 in their current abilities as big mountain skiers, and to want to explore both Alta and Snowbird through hiking and skiing more challenging lines. This team will have more focus on off-piste skills, competition, and air awareness. AltaBird Freeride Intro athletes 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: 10-11 (2013-2012 birth years)

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 in May. SBSEF holds the right to deny program access based on skill level.

Competition and Events: The AltaBird Intro to Freeride athletes have the opportunity to compete in Snowbird Competitions, as well as other competitions in the surrounding area.
