SKI RACING AT BMA

CHASING GREATNESS

 

Burke Mountain Academy emphasizes long-term planning — the process of learning what it takes to succeed at the highest level — over a short-term, outcome-driven strategy. As firm believers in the benefits of periodized training, we prioritize adequate rest and thorough preparation over simply chasing races. 

You've likely heard of some of our alums making names for themselves on the World Cup circuit, including Mikaela Shiffrin '14, Nina O'Brien '15, and Britt Richardson '21, and noteworthy graduates Erik Schlopy '90, Thomas Grandi '90, Chip Knight '93, Jesse Hunt '83, Diann Roffe '85, Julie Parisien Nuce '89, Casey Puckett '90, and Bryna McCarty '02.

 

Being a World Cup slalom skier, I see a lot of injection on courses—having the fundamentals and the value of hard work that was instilled in me at Burke has proven invaluable. There are a lot of great programs in the country, but BMA was definitely the best place for me. nolan kasper '07

 

The values by which BMA athletes learn to train and live, rather than their results, determine future success. The life skills that ultimately set Burkies apart are hard work, motivation, and dedication.

On the hill and off, from the smallest corners of Vermont to the farthest reaches of the globe, our athletes are known for being mountain strong.


BMA student-athletes experience success in ski racing, but how we maximize their potential as a ski racer develops in them the key qualities needed to succeed in college and the rest of life.
