All Mountain Snowboard Team

All Mountain Snowboard Team

9 to 12-years-old

Program Overview

The Development (Devo) All Mountain Snowboard Program is tailored for intermediate snowboarders aged 9 to 12. This non-competitive, non-travel team is perfect for those who have previously taken snowboard lessons, as we do not provide beginner lessons.

Participants should be able to safely load and unload a chairlift with only their front foot strapped in, execute a J-turn stop to the right and left on green and blue runs, and link 'heel' and 'toe' side turns on intermediate terrain (blue runs off Lakeview Chair).

The program emphasizes a comprehensive, boundary-to-boundary snowboarding experience, focusing on refining All Mountain skills, fundamentals, and snowboarder etiquette. Key skills covered in the program include:

  • Safety
  • Navigating bumps
  • Riding switch
  • Beginner terrain park skills and etiquette
  • Carving
  • Off-piste and glade (tree) riding
  • Jumps
  • Powder riding
  • Speed control through turn shape and size

We foster a positive and supportive team atmosphere centered on adventure, safety, exploration, and respect. This environment encourages solid decision-making skills and provides numerous opportunities for skill development, aiming to prepare athletes for future advanced programs. All training sessions are held exclusively at Diamond Peak, ensuring no travel requirements.

The Devo All Mountain Snowboard Team operates as a 3-day program, spanning your choice of Wednesday or Thursday from 12:30 PM to 4 PM, along with full-day sessions on Saturday, Sunday, and designated holidays from 9 AM to 3 PM.
