Next Level Competition

The Gould Academy Competition Programs (GACP) at Sunday River are designed for advanced skiers and snowboarders with a desire to improve and compete in alpine skiing, freestyle skiing, or snowboarding. GACP strives to teach young athletes ages 7-19 the skills to improve and the motivation to fuel their desire to become the best. This program is designed for skiers and snowboarders who have the ability to ski or ride the entire mountain and the desire to compete. GACP provides small coach-to-athlete ratios in all three competitive disciplines: Alpine, Freestyle, and Snowboarding.

  • Alpine skiing (slalom, giant slalom, super-G and downhill)
  • Freestyle skiing (moguls and freeride)
  • Snowboarding (halfpipe, slopestyle, slalom, giant slalom and boardercross)

Program Philosophy

Healthy Competition

The Gould Academy Competition Programs strives to be a spirited program that promotes a love for skiing/riding and competition. To create an environment that encourages kids to be motivated and improve the level of their skiing. The design of the program is intended to prepare athletes to compete at the highest levels in every age group.
