program description

Welcome to the starting line of your skiing journey at Bousquet! Our Development Team, or “Devo” as we affectionately call it, is a thrilling ride for young snow lovers aged 6-12. It’s all about embracing mountain skiing, with a sprinkle of racing instruction for those ready to level up their skills.

In the Devo program, we prioritize the power of fun. Our carefully crafted approach blends the joy of free skiing with skill-enhancing drills. Here’s what you can expect:

 

  • Thrilling skiing adventures: Our young skiers embark on exciting explorations of different terrains, from moguls to jumps, keeping every day on the mountain full of new challenges and excitement.
  • Skill-focused training: Through a mix of balance, agility, edging, and rotary drills, we help our skiers develop a solid foundation of skills that builds confidence and enables progress on the slopes.
  • Embracing the race experience: As the season unfolds, we introduce the exhilaration of racing gates, allowing our skiers to test their abilities, enhance their speed, and feel the rush of friendly competition.
  • Individual growth paths: Whether our skiers choose to continue their racing journey in our Interclub or Tri-State programs or find joy in the Devo experience itself, we celebrate and support their unique paths, ensuring they become well-rounded skiers.
