Introduction to Ski Racing

Introduction to Ski Racing | Start Date: December 26, 2022. End Date March 11, 2023

This program is designed for young kids who have an interest in developing their fundamental skiing skills and want to have a blast ripping around the mountain with other like-minded skiers. Kids are grouped together based upon a combination of age (social maturity/compatibility) and skill level considerations. Kids in the Devo Program will concentrate, first and foremost, on focused free skiing and drills designed to address balance, agility, edging, and rotary skills. Some Devo kids will eventually progress further through the Race Program pipeline, graduating to Interclub racing, and eventually Tri-State, while others will simply enjoy the Devo experience itself and use it to become better, all-round skiers.


The Devo program takes place exclusively on Saturdays. It begins with Holiday Race Camp for 5 consecutive days, and continues every Saturday after that through March 12. (The week between Christmas and New Year’s, we offer the Holiday Race Camp, which is included in the Devo program, and  is a great way for everyone to get their ski legs!)  

During the first session, all kids are evaluated and grouped according to age, skill assessment, free skiing, coach-ability, and attitude. For the most part, kids should expect to remain with the same group and the same coach for the duration of the program. Each day, activity begins at 9:00 am and ends at 2:30 pm, with an unsupervised break for lunch at 11 am till noon.

Parents Association

Devo parent membership in the Parents Association is required. The Parents Association mission is to support the events and activities of the Catamount Ski Team in ways agreed upon with the director of the racing program. Joining this association is a wonderful way to plug into our racing community, learn some of the ins and outs of the sport from veteran families and experienced ski racing parents, and help support some of the great events we host here at Catamount.

This product is subject to change based on the season. It is dependent upon when the season begins and ends and dates may change. The cost of the program will not be pro-rated and no refunds will be given.

If your child comes to the program and is not able to meet the skiing or riding ability level requirement, the option will be given to take a few Mountain Cats lessons (at an extra charge) to hold space in this program and gain the necessary skills to move back into the group. If the child does not gain the skills necessary to meet the minimum ability level of the group, the cost of only the program will be used to book lessons through Mountain Cats for the child.
