Co-Curricular On-Snow

For many of our students, the opportunity to be just minutes away from one of the best ski resorts in the world means the opportunity to learn something new. With Gould’s Co-Curricular On Snow Programs, students can become a kids ski or snowboard instructor or a certified ski patroller, working with adaptive athletes with disabilities, or learn how to ski or snowboard for the very first time.

Regardless of which path a student chooses to take, he or she will come away from their on-snow experience with skills that reads well on any college transcript.
