Winter 2013-14 College/University Academy Program

Wintergreen Resort offers an exciting opportunity for students at local colleges and universities to enjoy outdoor adventure and physical fitness in a beautiful setting. The Wintergreen Snowsports College Academy is a 5 week program for students of all abilities - from beginner to advanced – to improve and develop their ski and snowboard skills.

Friendly, qualified instructors and coaches are trained to make the learning process informative and fun. Skill development is improved by having consistent coaches and instructors over the entire five week course.

During the first session we will:

  • Evaluate individual skills
  • Organize into small groups of equal abilities
  • Introduce through demonstration and explanation the skills that will be learned
  • Goal setting exercises

Each week Coaches will evaluate students and come up with lesson plans to help groups meet their goals. Coaches will also keep written evaluations and participation records. We are working with universities to offer this program as credited courses.

The program includes:

  • Five 1.25 hour on snow sessions
  • Rental equipment pass that includes boots, skis and poles or snowboard and a helmet. The rental pass allows the individual to use rental equipment anytime midweek or after 12:30 pm on Sundays (except Holidays).
  • A season pass that not only allows for lift access during your session but for any other time you want to practice your skills midweek or after 12:30 pm on Sundays (except Holidays).

The special price for college and university students is $319

If you have your own equipment the price is reduced to $249

The normal retail price for all the program includes would be $578

The program begins Tuesday, January 14, 2014 and the lessons are offered at the following times:

  • 2:30 pm-4 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, or
  • 5:30 pm-7 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays

The lessons run consecutively over the next five weeks on the same days and times.

All sessions are group formats and must be scheduled in advance.

Additionally the academy program is currently used by multiple colleges and universities as a PE credited course. If your particular institution does not offer the academy as a credited class we can help you make this happen. Send an email to the above address for information and support in making this a possibility.
