We make it a priority at Team Summit to ensure that our student-athletes have the flexibility and support to pursue their athletic goals while also receiving an enriching and challenging education. Our full-time student-athletes have more on-snow at-home training days than any program in the country. We have access to four world-class skiing and snowboarding mountains as well as off-snow strength and conditioning throughout the year. Our full-time athletes learn many life skills, such as discipline, self-advocacy, strong work ethic, independence, and many more. This program will benefit them well into the future!
