Wasatch Academy’s competitive programs include alpine racing, skiing, and snowboarding in the disciplines of slopestyle, half-pipe, and big mountain. Our skiing and snowboarding student-athletes compete in the USASA, REV, and Futures Tour. The Big Mountain team also competes in the IFSA Junior events. Even more programs are available with our partners at .
Wasatch Academy provides a robust support system for student-athletes. We individualize the training, coaching, and travel for each athlete and balance our programs to support all of an athlete’s needs and academic goals.
An opportunity unique to our program, students participate in pre-season training at the U.S. Ski Team Center of Excellence facilities and the U.S. Olympic Park in Park City, Utah. At these world-class venues, our students participate in strength-training exercises, practice on indoor ski and snowboarding ramps, and experience the ski jump in completely safe environments.

Did we say private ski hill?
A new world to play in.
Wasatch Academy boasts a private ski hill and snowcat. Each season we construct a private terrain park with perfectly groomed trails for all skill levels—an advantage many programs lack. Intermediate riders may expect an intermediate terrain park in a safe and calculated environment, and advanced riders may access rails and jumps built exclusively for them. Students enrolled in the ski and snowboard programs can expect several sessions on our private hill during the winter season.
365体育备用Because of its diverse terrain and proximity to Wasatch Academy, we have selected to locate the First Tracks and First Tracks Plus weekend programs. Students may ski on Friday nights and all day on Saturdays, and Sundays offer a full day of riding to which students arrive back on campus in the evening. With accommodations situated at an on-slope mountain lodge and chaperones ready to assist with the programs, students only need to come prepared for a weekend on the mountain.
First Tracks Program +
365体育备用The First Tracks Program Plus includes professional ski and snowboard coaching. Best suited for intermediate to advanced riders looking to take their skills to the next level, this program develops rider confidence in the terrain park and on the mountain.
With ski and snowboard staff dedicated to the growth and achievement of each rider’s individual goals, no scoreboard exists in our snow program, and we identify success with each student individually. Our program offers beginner to advanced coaching, and all riders may expect a level of personal training to help them build independence both on and off the hill.
