Make Nordic skiing at GMVS your next adventure. We’ll tailor your training plan to your unique goals and aspirations, we’ll expose you to exceptional travel and training opportunities, we’ll cultivate your sense of adventure, we’ll help you pursue your dreams — no matter how ambitious.

Imagine integrating cross-country running, soccer, or lacrosse into your nordic and biathlon training program. Imagine being pushed — on a daily basis — by some of the best Nordic skiers in New England. Imagine training and racing at the finest venues in the United States, Canada, and Europe.

Here at GMVS, we emphasize a long-term perspective on athlete development and pride ourselves on exposing students to exceptional travel and training opportunities that develop an authentic sense of adventure. You’ll discover the history of the Italian Alps while traveling to our sister school in Mals, Italy, you’ll discover the beauty of Yellowstone National Park and Canada’s Okanagan Valley while on location in West Yellowstone and SilverStar, and you’ll experience the Olympic history of Lake Placid.

At the same time, you’ll play host to Eastern Regional camps and you’ll make the Mad River Valley your home — a place that’s quickly establishing itself as a pillar in New England Nordic skiing.

Interested in pairing your passion for cross-country skiing with marksmanship? We’ll partner with the Ethan Allen Biathlon Club in Jericho, Vermont to fuel your interest. From entry-level paintball and air rifle races to national championships, we’ll help power your passions.
