Mission & Philosophy

Integrity, excellence, and passion

Founded in 1920 by a small group of passionate local skiers and incorporated in 1934, Mt. Mansfield Ski Club (MMSC) is one of the oldest ski racing organizations in America. We offer athletic programs for a wide range of individuals from seven year olds to high school students and postgraduates. These programs are designed to provide athletes with a stimulating and enjoyable opportunity to become excellent skiers, to help them reach their potential as competitors, and most importantly to foster a lifelong love of the sport while teaching the values of teamwork and sportsmanship.

We also offer unparalleled academics at Mt. Mansfield Winter Academy (MMWA) for students in grades 7 through 12 as they pursue competitive ski racing. Students from New England and beyond come to us for our highly individualized winter program in Stowe, Vermont. We help our student-athletes grow to be independent, responsible, respectful, and confident as they set their sights on future goals in academics, ski racing, and limitless other pursuits.

We have graduated Olympians, USST members, collegiate ski racers, and students who have attended many prestigious universities. Today our efforts produce not only top-notch athletes but also well-rounded individuals who contribute in a positive way to their communities and the world around them.

As one of twenty USSA Gold-certified clubs in the nation, MMSC is honored to be named among the best programs in developing junior athletes and supporting the sport of ski racing. We share a strong appreciation for USSA’s vision to build upon areas of strength and opportunity, to ensure the longevity and stability of the organization, and to help grow the cumulative strength of clubs across the country.
