Mount Snow Academy is the only on-hill ski academy in the Northeast. The Academy building is located steps from the lift in the main base area of Mount Snow. Mount Snow Academy is equally dedicated to the development of racers, freeskiers, and snowboarders. MSA has produced Olympians, National Team members and successful collegiate athletes.
Hallmarks of Mount Snow Academy are our small size and our customized training programs for each athlete. We maintain an athlete to coach ratio of less than 5:1. Our coaching staff is highly experienced and dedicated to the success of their athletes, including an individualized dry land regimen. During training, coaches routinely take video of the athletes which is used for review and analysis of technique.

Alpine skiers at MSA train for competition in Slalom, Giant Slalom, and Super G. Unlike the situation at many ski academies, MSA athletes are not limited to a particular trail or type of terrain for training. We have access to a variety of trails, which allows us to customize our daily training according to the competition schedule and weather conditions. The Peak Resorts at Mount Snow supports high-level Alpine competitions.
