Team Description

ALPINE DEVELOPMENT TEAM AKA "DEVO'S"

The Devo team is the youngest age class ski education program in the SBSEF. The Devo team is an introduction to Alpine Ski Racing and all mountain skiing. The purpose of the program is to provide an enjoyable learning opportunity for young skiers interested in improving their skiing skills and meeting other young skiers. Devos will develop a love for skiing while learning to ski all mountain terrain and snow conditions. Using Snowbird's great terrain, jumps, and racing gates will provide the young skier a well-rounded experience.

Devo team athletes are 7 to 11 years old. For the 2018/2019 season your child’s birthday needs to be no younger than 1/1/20011 and no older than 1/1 2007. Your racer must be 7 by December 31st to join our program. Devo team members are motivated young skiers. We ask that prospective members are able to ski expert (groomed black diamond) runs at Snowbird. It is our goal, that by the end of the season our Devos are skiing almost the entire mountain and have learned the fundamentals of ski racing. The Devo Team offers several enrollment options. We have a full season program beginning in December and a half season option starting in early January. The program ends in late March. Our full season program includes Christmas Camp, which is 5 days of training 12/27 to 12/31. Devos train on weekends and you can choose to sign up for Saturday or Sunday - or both days. The Devo’s have an opportunity to train extra days with the Devo Transitional Team for an additional $600.00 You must have permission to add this program. These sessions focus more specifically on ski racing skills and helping athletes make a smooth transition to the next level of racing.

Our athletes are required to have a Snowbird season pass that includes Tram access. In addition, Devos must be licensed as a youth competitor with the United States Ski and Snowboard Association and the Intermountain Division. The Devos compete in the Youth Ski League (YSL) races. The YSL race series consists of 4 races per season. The environment at these races provides a great entrance to the sport of ski racing. All of the races are local and they’re 1-day events, except for the YSL Finals in March, which is a 2-day event. Before our first YSL race we will have a Devo practice race on our own race hill.  This race gives the Devos a comfortable atmosphere to practice their first race event.

The Devo team is a great way to get your child excited about skiing. As an organization, we strive to create a life long passion for skiing and sport. If you have more question please contact the Devo Team Head Coach, contact information is on the Devo Team Page. We look forward to you joining our program. See you on the hill!
