Alpine Program

The Alpine Program at Stratton Mountain School is the premier program for ski racing in the nation.
Our Alpine Program is run at the highest standards for coaching, athlete management (conditioning, equipment, nutrition, sports psychology) and most importantly, governance and safety. The Alpine Program focuses on the complete development of athletes in the U14–U21 age groups. With over 45 years of perfecting athlete development, Stratton Mountain School has helped promote 14 alpine athletes to the Olympics with a combined total of 22 Olympic placements.
