The Solitude Development Team (a.k.a Devo Team) is a season-long program for kids ages 6-13. The program gives kids the chance to build and refine their skills in a fun and competitive environment. The Devo Team’s goal is to create well-rouded athletes who are always conscious of safety, sportsmanship, mountain etiquette and teamwork.

Head Instructor, Jeff Handwerk, a level III certified instructor and level II coach, takes a hands-on approach to instruction and gives detailed lessons to the 30 participants chosen for the team. Team members will participate from late November to early April.

Areas of emphasis include: skiing fundamentals, moguls, snow blade skiing, all-mountain free skiing, mountain awareness and safety and race training. Members must be able to link turns on intermediate runs and be capable of completing turns in a parallel stance.
