Message from the Nordic Director:
The GMVS Nordic Ski Program is unique for junior skiers, allowing them to develop with a long term perspective, while experiencing exceptional travel opportunities, and developing a true sense of adventure. Students are equally challenged in athletics and academics, and those with a strong sense of personal determination find great success. We provide encouragement and motivation to skiers to pursue their dreams — no matter how lofty their goals may be.
Throughout the year we travel to amazing locales, which provide strong training opportunities, allow our students to find a sense of place, and ultimately help shape their perspective about the world. It is our belief that the best skiers are not only strong in body, but also strong in mind. Graduates from the GMVS Nordic Program have a diverse set of tools — giving them a jump-start on their collegiate careers and beyond.
We offer training programs throughout the year, operating with an open door, which allows collaboration between current students, parents, alumni, and friends. We encourage our alumni to return often, as they are often the best mentors for our present students. Throughout the year it is quite normal to find yourself training beside champions — from Bill Koch to Olympic level athletes.
Our alumni have competed at every level of competition and we strive to place athletes on national and international teams. Recent Olympians include: Adam Verrier (1994) and Laura Spector (2010). We have sent multiple athletes to the Scandinavian Champs Team, U23 World Champs, and World Youth Biathlon Champs. Our athletes and coaches continue to be a mainstays for the New England Junior National Team — with four recent Junior National Champions to our credit.
