Winter Academy for Alpine, Freeskiing and Snowboarding


The mission of the Mount Snow Academy snowboard program is to develop the students’ mental strength and abilities in order to create well-rounded athletes. We prepare our athletes for all levels of snowboard competition including the USASA Nationals, Revolution Tour, Grand Prix, X-Games, World Cup, and even the Olympics.

Rigorous on-hill preparation, supported by extensive dry land training, allows our athletes to reach their full potential in their snowboard careers. Mount Snow offers renowned facilities with their world class Super-Pipe and multiple terrain parks.
