Featured Alumni

Academic Approach: Steamboat Mountain School is relaxed and informal, there’s no pretense here – people are comfortable being themselves. Student are serious about what they’re here to do, but not against having fun doing it. We expect students over the course of their four years to become confident in synthesizing, analyzing, and organizing information. 

Athletic Approach: If you are a student-athlete who cares both about your grades and your podium finishes, then Steamboat Mountain School is the school and ski/snowboard program for you.

Training Facilities:

The Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club (SSWSC) trains at the championship-caliber Stevens Family Alpine Venue located at the Steamboat Ski Resort. SSWSC directs all snowmaking and grooming at the venue.  Our snowmaking and grooming operators manually inject the snow surface twice a season creating a fast and consistent run. Executive Director, Jon Nolting says, “I call it our ski racing sandbox. Once we get the snow on the hill, we can move it anywhere to create features like rollers, mounds, sharp break-overs and spine-like terrain to challenge the racers. Once the skiers master those, we’ll move the snow around and try something new. We can make the hill ski like a World Cup course and days later modify it to accommodate U12 racers.”
