A little history...

In 1970, Warren Hellman and Don Tarinelli sought to provide their children with extensive ski race training and a superior academic program. The idea took off, and by 1972, Stratton Mountain School was born. 

50 years later, SMS has become one of the most prestigious winter sports academies in the world. Founded on the mission of providing a unique environment that offers each student the opportunity to pursue excellence in competitive winter sports and college preparatory academics while developing strong personal values, these ideals remain the cornerstone of an SMS education today. 

The 2021-2022 school year marks SMS' 50th Anniversary. In celebration of this special milestone, we have pieced together our history from old newsletters, yearbooks, photos, and- most importantly – the memories of those who lived through those experiences. We welcome the community to reflect on some of the remarkable achievements of the past and join us for events throughout the year as we inspire the future.

Celebrate with us!

Watch this space for more exciting events, including Alumni micro-events in a city near you and our first-ever Alumni Ski Trip!
