Real School. Real Racing. Real Mountain.
At Gould we create an environment where student-athletes develop a love for skiing and ski racing competition.
The Alpine Program prepares student-athletes to compete at the highest levels in each age group. We strike a balance of technical skills, free skiing and gate training at Sunday River Ski Resort, offering the best opportunity for student-athletes to reach their potential.
Preparation for beyond is extremely important to us. We take a patient approach and focus on developing our athletes. Our goal is to prepare our student-athletes to have the tools to succeed when they advance beyond Gould Academy.
The Alpine Program is comprehensive, with a highly qualified, full-time coaching staff that allows athletes to compete in a variety of schedules ranging from local state USSA races to international FIS events.
Alpine skiers are members of the United States Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA) and compete at the U18, U16, and U14 levels.
Our own Zach Bouchard ’15 trained and raced at the US Ski Team’s Center for Excellence, during the U16 National Assessment Project. Read more in Ski Racing Magazine:
