Freestyle Progression

The SVSEF Freestyle Progression Team is a continuation of Mini-X. Our primary goal is to create safe, fun filled training environments while creating the best all mountain skiers. Athletes work on developing their skills while skiing the back bowls, groomers, trees and moguls. They also spend some time in the park, and have the option to train on our world-class mogul & jump venue on Roundhouse. The on-snow breakdown is 20% course/venue, 50% all-mountain and 30% freeski. Athletes are also welcome to participate in our summer training camps and early season on-snow camps.

Our Air Barn training sessions focus on building athlete’s air awareness in our state of the art Air Barn. Athletes have the opportunity to work on developing their tumbling and trampoline skills with the possibility of hitting the dry slope jump into the air bag.

Athletes on the Freestyle Progression team must be solid independent skiers with an interest or experience in freestyle skiing.

Baldy Devo

SVSEF’s Baldy Devo program is the developmental ski and snowboard program for SVSEF Baldy-based teams. Devo is for “Baldy-proof” kids, meaning athletes who can ski/ride top to bottom, off-piste & groomed, and who understand safety rules and mountain etiquette.

We practice all-mountain basic skiing and riding, jump and park skills, bump skills and racing techniques with a strong FUNdamental emphasis. SVSEF’s Baldy Devo program is designed to introduce and refine skills required to advance within SVSEF’s alpine, snowboard, freestyle and freeski programs. The SVSEF Baldy Devo program is staffed with experienced, professional coaches who teach age-appropriate skill progressions utilizing U.S. Ski & Snowboard program, in tandem with a host of internal SVSEF skill- and team-building philosophies.
