Mountain Sports Mountain Bike Team
Over the past few years the Mountain Adventures Program has been offering a great program for local mountain bikers through the Mountain Shredders Team. As we move into this summer we will be taking the successes we have seen with Mountain Shredders and rolling it into our new Mountain Sports Mountain Bike Team. We are building a gravity based downhill team and an X-country/enduro team. We are looking forward to reshaping this summer program and continue to build a “pipeline” for athletes very similar to what the Mountain Sports Team has formed for our winter programs. The beginner and intermediate mt bike programs in mt adventures will complete the pipeline. This will provide the opportunity for any level cyclist to have a program to begin their biking pathway in.
The MST will be offering two 6 week sessions throughout the summer. Each program will be offered twice a week with options to ride an additional half day with the teams on Wednesday. Also, each session includes an overnight capstone trip, allowing the team to explore a few more trails in and around the valley. For more details on the weekly schedule check out the website.
In the meantime mark your calendar as the MST Mountain Bike Program will be kicking off the first session June 8th with a 4-day summer ramp up camp to evaluate and place athletes.

Crested Butte Mountain Resort is pleased to offer its sixth season of comprehensive mountain sports programs that are accessible to a wide variety of athletes, from kids learning to ski and ride to driven student athletes. 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, free-ride, and tele-mark skiing. The 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 all of 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:
