Built on a Tradition of Excellence

Development Program/Camps

The Alpine Development Program at Stratton Mountain School is comprised of the Stratton Mini-Camp Series and the SMS Development Camps. These programs are intended for U10–U16 ski racers who are seeking to supplement their training. Each of these programs introduces athletes to a full-time ski academy experience and allows young racers to take advantage of the vast resources of one of the top ski academies in the country. Please contact Jim Sullivan for additional information.

Stratton Mini-Camp Series

The Stratton Mini-Camp Series is a cooperative camp series with the Stratton Winter Sports Club (SWSC) that provides U10–U14 athletes with the opportunity to focus on foundational drills and gate training similar to the training at SMS and SWSC. Coaches from SMS and SWSC will offer the athletes additional skiing and training to help supplement a racer’s regular weekend program at their home ski area.

After each session, racers are assigned skills to work on back at the home program. The Stratton Mini-Camp Series takes place on the first Monday and Tuesday of each month from December through March, focusing on free-skiing drills and gate training for giant slalom and slalom.
