KSC/KMS Programs

Welcome to the 2019-2020 Season!

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 6-8 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.

We hope to see all of you Columbus Day Weekend, either for the KSC Monster Ski Sale on October 11-13, at the Ramshead Lodge, or on Sunday October 13, at 9 a.m. when all athletes will participate in the Columbus Day Weekend Annual Hike to the top of Killington Mountain, followed by refreshments and activities at the Open House at the Killington Mountain School Campus. Please join us for these events, but please also remember to dress in appropriate hiking attire, have appropriate footwear, and bring plenty of water.
