Mountain Sports Team

Crested Butte Mountain Resort is pleased to offer its eighth season of comprehensive mountain sports programs that are available to a wide variety of athletes, from kids learning to ski and ride to driven student athletes. Crested Butte Mountain Sports Team (CBMST) offers various levels of participation beginning with weekend development programs to full-time, competitive based programming. Mountain Sports Team Registration

CBMST Development Programs focus on bringing kids exhibiting strong fundamentals by taking their personal skills to a higher level in alpine racing, snowboarding, freeride, and telemark skiing. Development Programs will introduce athletes to tactical and technical approaches while taking advantage of all the terrain the mountain has to offer. 

The primary goal for our athletes is to set them up for success. With this in mind, we have created a developmental pipeline for our participants. This approach aids in creating an environment that allows coaches to focus on athletes’ developmental and skill level in a similar age range. They move through a system that teaches fundamental skills in technical skiing and progresses them towards tactical skills within their specific discipline. 

The following is an outline of the development pipeline for athletes and the disciplines offered for each team:

Junior Development Team “Jr. Devo's”

The Junior Development Team is designed to introduce kids to the Mountain Sports Team. Many participants graduate to this program through the local Cruisers program offered at the Ski and Ride School. Cruisers is offered for kids ages 4-14, however the “Jr. Devo” Team is designed to increase the commitment of young athletes. Participation introduces these kids to the concepts of tactics and technical skiing in the discipline they are interested in. This allows the athletes to begin narrowing their focus on the hill in Alpine Skiing and Snowboarding.
