If you consider the Wild Cat Club as ‘Elementary School’ the Junior SnowSports Academy would be equivalent to ‘Secondary School’ – the High School of SnowSports! Elementary School introduced the fundamental skills that apply to SnowSports, in high school we will show the students how to blend these skills, applying each in varying degrees to become a more proficient skier or snowboarder. Students find that the Academy gives them the tools to not only become more adept in their own skiing or riding, but it also ignites an inner passion to help others become proficient SnowSports enthusiasts. This passion, along with their newly mastered skills drives many of the successful students to pursue opportunities of employment in the SnowSports industry.
