Stratton Mountain School focuses on five winter sports: Alpine Skiing, Freeskiing, Freestyle Skiing, Nordic Skiing and Snowboarding. Through these five disciplines, athletes are able to compete at the highest levels and maximize their own athletic potential. On-snow training takes place at Stratton Mountain Resort as well as other local mountains.
In 1999, the new Stratton Mountain School campus was built to provide the highest quality athletic and academic opportunities. In 2005, the main part of the Burtscher Field House was added, and in 2014, the Air Awareness Center was constructed to round out the athletic facilities.
SMS provides a successful strength and conditioning program that is based on physical testing performed in the state-of-the-art training facilities. This program develops the complete athlete by combining the most important fitness components: aerobic, anaerobic, agility, coordination, strength and power. SMS’s goal is to understand and maximize each athlete’s potential.
Stratton Mountain School offers competitive fall and spring sports teams. SMS teams participate in the Vermont Principals Association high school league and compete throughout New England and eastern New York.
