KSC/KMS Programs

We are so excited to welcome you for the 2020-2021 Season! 

As you are aware we have been diligently planning for this coming winter so that we all may continue to enjoy Killington safely this year.  

Each day we are learning more and more information as to how we can run our programs in accordance with the State of Vermont and Resort requirements and what this may mean for the way in which we deliver our program. We will continue to monitor the state of VT requirements for safety during the COVID pandemic.  We will also be following the recommendations from Killington resort.  We will implement all the requirements to maintain a safe environment at the club and ski area this season.  

 

Despite the uncertainty, we are prepared to adapt and look forward to providing your athletes with the highest quality instruction and developmental experience this season as you have come to expect from our programs.  

We will continue to communicate with everyone as the season approaches.  We look forward to a great fall as we prepare for the winter. 

The KSC/KMS Development Programs offer a variety of seasonal ski and snowboard programs for athletes over a broad range of ages, abilities and snow sports disciplines.  We are in the business of developing young, well-rounded athletes who are pursuing their love of the sport through training and competition.

The KSC/KMS coaching staff supports and sustains each athlete with instruction, information and encouragement while teaching athletes how to safely enjoy on-mountain snow sports. Our professional coaches accomplish this in an atmosphere of fun, safety, self-reliance and good sportsmanship. These programs develop competitive athletes who are shaped by the ideals of athleticism and who are inspired by a lifelong love of their sports.

These programs are the primary development pipelines for the Killington Mountain School. The KMS alpine, freestyle, freeski, and snowboard program directors offer guidance and provide on-snow curricula to assist the KSC/KMS development programs. 

The Killington Ski Club provides a home on the mountain for families, athletes and program staff, as well as support for the programs, adult ski programs and social activities.

The Future Stars program for athletes 6-9 years of age will focus on developing fundamental skills in a fun and challenging environment on Killington Mountain. Future Stars introduces each athlete to a range of snow sports disciplines offered by KSC/KMS Development Programs while building strong fundamental skills. 

Acquiring a strong fundamental skill base in this program will allow your child to develop skills for reaching his or her personal potential and achieve athletic excellence in his or her sport of choice. In the process, your child will learn about his or her potential, friendships and sportsmanship while developing a passion for a lifelong sport. The program is based around on-snow technical training and participation in competition events within the specific program descriptions throughout the course of the season.

The away competitions will require additional memberships in the organizations listed on the program pages. For those athletes who wish to pursue more competition in USSS, VARA events, Eastern Freestyle events, or USASA events, please choose the discipline-specific competitive program.
