Alpine & Freestyle PreDevo


2018-2019 PROGRAMS:

PRE-DEVO (age 6-9; must be in 1st grade or higher)
This program is a bridge between our recreational program, Aspen Supports Kids, and our Alpine or Freestyle programs. Pre-Devo is not required before entering into Alpine or Freestyle U-10 two or three-day programs. Pre-Devo is a one-day program. It teaches mountain safety, lots of all-mountain and basic freestyle fundamentals, and introduces racing – a well-rounded experience for young skiers. Skiers are encouraged to enter 2-3 fun-focused local competitions at no additional cost. Athletes should be a level 6 or higher.

  • On-snow training dates: Sundays December 2nd – March 17th plus two Saturdays (December 1st skill evaluation - returning athletes are encouraged to attend but not required; March 16th Triple Crown)
  • Program Fee: $1,385 until September 12th; $1,540 on or after September 13th; Additional Parent Work Deposit of $120

*1st year Pre-Devo athletes will have a skill evaluation day before the first day.


PreDevo Leadership

Jonathan Gold is leading the PreDevo program this year! Jonathan is psyched to be back for his 4th year with AVSC. He enjoys working with AVSC athletes because he loves seeing the kids start to realize how fun skiing can really be. In his words, "Some kids are timid and lack confidence to ski steep runs and moguls at the beginning of the year, and by mid to late season they are excited to ski all of the hard runs and are flying down them. I love seeing the transition where they realize they can do it. I also love seeing the kids start to practice and refine technique to ski these runs." Jonathan recognizes the role that skiing plays in the culture of the Roaring Fork Valley, and he takes a lot of pride in helping kids learn to ski well and enjoy all aspects of what it has to offer. When he's not with the kids, you can find him skiing, climbing, biking, backpacking, skateboarding, making art, surfing, or traveling.
